I've Been Charged - Now What?

If you receive a notice of charge letter, it does not mean you “did something wrong” or that you are automatically in violation of anything.  It does mean your name was on a report and you need to come and share what happened, if anything.

Make sure to read your Notice of Charge letter and respond to the Conduct Officer.

Failing to respond to the meeting request may result in a decision made without your participation.  A HOLD may also be placed on your Banner account which will prevent you from getting grades, registering for classes, and graduating.

Meeting with the Office of Student Conduct and Community Standards

You will:

  • Have the Conduct process explained in detail.
  • Have your rights within the process explained.
  • Have the charges explained and view the incident report.
  • Be given the opportunity to share your side of the story.
  • Be given the opportunity to plead “In Violation” or “Not in Violation” to the charges.
    • If you plead “In Violation”, the Conduct Officer will discuss sanctions with you.
    • If you plead “Not in Violation”, your charges may be withdrawn or the case may be sent to a hearing in front of the University Conduct Board.
