Sanctions

In light of the facts and circumstances of each case, the following sanctions, or combination of sanctions (with or without appropriate modifications) may be imposed upon any individual student found to have violated the Student Conduct Code. Certain sanctions may result in a financial cost to the student. If a student does not complete a sanction by the required deadline, a hold may be placed on the student’s record. Decisions regarding falsification of admission or readmission information may be forwarded to the appropriate office for review of the application and appropriate action regarding admission.
