Maintenance of Records
A student's conduct case record will be maintained in the Office of Student Conduct. The case record of a student found responsible for charge(s) against them, with sanctions less than suspension or expulsion, will generally be maintained in the Office of Student Conduct for seven years from the calendar year of record, after which they are destroyed. The case record of a student who has been placed on Disciplinary Suspension or Expulsion will be permanently maintained as official records by the Office of Student Conduct.
Sealing of Records
A student’s conduct record is eligible to be sealed if the incident(s) in question are minor and do not result in suspension or expulsion and where further violations would not likely result in suspension or expulsion from the university. A student conduct record may be sealed upon the successful submission and review of appropriate paperwork to the Office of Student Conduct. The factors influencing the decision by the Director, OSRR for sealing are the severity of the violation, effect of the violation on the University community, sanctions applied, completion of sanctions, and ethical development demonstrated by the student. There is no appeals process regarding student conduct record sealing.
Release of Records
The release of student disciplinary records will be governed by applicable federal and state laws regarding the privacy of educational records.
