current local or permanent address as listed in the Registrar’s records in the United
States Postal Service mail or campus mail, sending written correspondence to the
student’s official University email address, or hand delivering written notice to the
student. Receipt will constitute full and adequate notice.
The student’s failure to provide and maintain current addresses with the
Registrar, refusal to accept delivery of a letter, or failure to receive an email message
because the mailbox is full or the message is inappropriately forwarded will not
constitute good cause for failure to comply with written notices.
Failure to respond to notices delivered via Item 5.2 shall constitute a separate
violation of this Code. Failure of the accused student to respond to the initiation of
charges or schedule a procedural interview shall in no way prevent the University
from scheduling and conducting a University Hearing Board hearing or a Disciplinary
Conference with the Hearing Officer in the absence of the accused student.
The Dean of Students may bar or cancel the enrollment of a student who fails
to comply with notices sent in accordance with Item 5.2.
Students alleged to have violated the Prohibited Conduct Section of the Code
must contact the Hearing Officer to schedule a Procedural Interview within five
business days of receiving written notice.
Students who fail to contact the Hearing Officer to schedule the Procedural
Interview within the five business day period outlined in Item 6.1 will be considered to
have elected to proceed with a Disciplinary Conference under the Student Disciplinary
Procedures. Students who fail to appear for a scheduled Procedural Interview will be
considered to have elected to proceed with a Disciplinary Conference.
Copies of the following documents will be made available to the student at the
time of the Procedural Interview:
A copy of the Student Code of Conduct.
A copy of the referral notice and/or incident report.
A copy of the Students’ Rights and Responsibilities Respondent
Information and Acknowledgement Form.
Students who fail to contact the Hearing Officer to schedule the Procedural Interview
or who fail to attend a scheduled Procedural Interview will be provided access to
copies of these documents in advance of the Disciplinary Conference.
Within five business days of the Procedural Interview, the student shall choose
either a hearing before the University Hearing Board or a Disciplinary Conference
with the Hearing Officer. The student shall indicate their choice of hearing in writing
to the Hearing Officer.
