POLICY STATEMENT

The purpose of a pre-hearing meeting with the Office of Student Conduct is to explain the conduct procedures to the Charged Student and to select the proper hearing body to resolve the allegations. The Charged Student may at this meeting request that the pre-hearing meeting serve as an actual hearing, thereby waiving the Charged Student’s right to five Working Days' written notice prior to a hearing, and, in cases where suspension, expulsion, or negative notation may result, waiving the Charged Student’s right to a Committee hearing. If the Charged Student does not wish the pre-hearing meeting to be treated as the actual hearing, a hearing will be scheduled with the hearing body the Charged Student has chosen at a time that gives the Charged Student at least five Working Days' notice prior to the hearing. If the Student does not appear for a pre-hearing meeting, the Office of Student Conduct will set a time and place for a hearing. If the case has been determined by the Office of Student Conduct to possibly result in suspension, expulsion, or negative notation on the transcript, a Committee hearing will be scheduled. In all other cases, the Office of Student Conduct will set an informal hearing. The time between the Student's receipt of the notice and the hearing date must be at least five Working Days. The Office of Student Conduct will notify the Charged Student that there is an option to waive the hearing before the Committee and elect to have the case heard by the Office of Student Conduct if such a hearing has been set.
