  • STEP #1: FACULTY REPORTER’S RECOMMENDED SANCTIONS.
  • (A student will be assigned an Incomplete in the course of violation. The student will have one semester after the semester of violation to enroll in and successfully complete the course. If the student does not enroll in and successfully complete the course within this time frame, a grade of F will be assigned to the student’s transcript until the class is completed successfully.)
  • (Note: There is no notation of academic dishonesty on student’s official transcript. Course can be retaken at a later date and GPA will be adjusted to reflect most recent grade earned.)
  •   

  • 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 judicial proceedings take place and the case information is maintained and filed in the Office of the Dean of Students. In the event that another case of similar nature is filed against the student, the student will be called in to meet with the Dean of Students or a Judicial Hearing Officer to discuss the reported matters.
  • :  Student is called in to meet with the Dean of Students or a Judicial Hearing Officer to discuss the reported matter as a warning. Case information is then maintained and filed in the Office of the Dean of Students. In the event that the warning was not heeded, the judicial process will begin.
  • :  Student is called to a hearing with the Dean of Students or a Judicial Hearing Officer where it will be determined if the student is responsible/not responsible for their actions. If the student is found responsible, the faculty reporters recommendations selected in the above box will be taken into consideration when determining sanctions

  • Note: If the instructor intends to assign the student an “F” for their grade in the course in conjunction with any of the above options, the Office of the Dean of Students will work with Registration and Records to impose the grade. This imposition needs to come from the Office of the Dean of Students so that a student’s withdrawal from the course does not supersede the failing grade. The student must be informed that they are receiving a failing grade by the instructor prior to this request.
  • 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.
