If you receive an email from our office about possible violations of the Code of Student Conduct, please note that it is just that – a notification about possible violations. We are contacting you because we received information that indicates you may have acted in a way that is not aligned with what is expected of you as a student. We have a process in place that outlines how our office proceeds, which includes allowing you to have your voice heard about what happened.
Please be sure to read that letter in detail, and make sure you understand your options moving forward (as we have outlined on the “Conduct Process” page). We recommend, and most students, choose to participate in the informal process. To help you prepare for an informal resolution meeting, we have created this Informal Resolution Tip Sheet. If the violation is related to academic misconduct, you can learn more about the process on the Academic Misconduct Resource Sheet for Students.
You may want to consult with an advisor, which can be any person of your choosing including a member of the ASUC Student Advocate’s Office. This person can support you through the process if you feel nervous. An advisor is not required, and many students feel comfortable meeting without one.
Depending on the nature of the incident, you may want to request a copy of your conduct records from our office. Records requests can take a few days to prepare. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to call us.
