POLICY STATEMENT

When the Charged Student fails to appear at the time specified for a hearing, provided no prior arrangements for delay have been confirmed, the hearing will be held with the Charged Student not present. The results of the hearing will indicate that the hearing was held with the Charged Student in absentia. The Charged Student's absence cannot be assumed to be an admission of responsibility; nor can it be used in any way in the hearing body's or officer's determination of facts or judgment.
