Students who receive a C- or below can retake the course at later date and GPA will be adjusted to reflect the recent grade. The transcript will include the original assigned grade as well as the notation "Repeated-Excluded."

  • STEP #2: FACULTY REPORTERS MAY CHOOSE FROM THE FOLLOWING OPTIONS REGARDING THE ACTIONS TO BE TAKEN BY THE OFFICE OF THE DEAN OF STUDENTS
  • :  No conduct proceedings take place, and the case is filed and maintained in the Dean of Students Office. The student is informed via letter that their instructor has investigated and determined that the student engaged in an act of academic misconduct. The instructor is reporting the matter to the Dean of Students as an "information only" matter at this time. The student is told if they are involved in another incident of academic misconduct, then they will meet with the Dean of Students or a conduct officer and both incidents will be reviewed. A likely consequence for a second incident of academic misconduct is suspension or expulsion.
  • :  Student is asked to meet with the Dean of Students/Conduct Officer to discuss the incident, and it is determined if the student is responsible/not responsible for the specific allegation of academic misconduct. If the student is found responsible, the Dean of Students/Conduct Officer will utilize the instructor's recommendations in determining appropriate sanctions. Please choose from the following recommendation options:

    • :  Personalized, on-line seminar which promotes ethical development, $100.00 fee.
    • :  A written notice that the student is or has violated a specific provision of the Student Code of Conduct.
    • :  Written reprimand for a violation of a specific provision of the Student Code of Conduct. Probation is for a designated period of time and includes the probability of more severe disciplinary sanctions if the Respondent is found to violate the terms of the probation or any provision of the Student Code during the probationary period.
  • Thank you for taking time to report alleged violations to the Office of the Dean of Students. We believe the MAJOR reason to report a violation is to help students grow in the ability to reason through ethical dilemmas. We help students learn to take time when making decisions affecting not only the student, but also the community.
