Review and Decision by Dean of Students

The Dean of Students will make an initial determination as to whether there is a sufficient basis to believe that a violation of the Student Code of Conduct may have occurred.

If the Dean determines that there is a sufficient basis to believe that a violation of the Student Code of Conduct may have occurred and chooses to pursue the violation under the student code of conduct, then the Dean of Students will timely notify the student in writing of the alleged violation and will gather further information. A student who is charged in a Student Code of Conduct referral will be provided an opportunity to meet with the Dean of Students. The Dean of Students will determine whether it is more likely than not that a violation of the Student Code of Conduct has occurred and, if so, the appropriate disciplinary sanction to apply. In determining the sanction, the Dean will consider any mitigating factors, including any prior violations of the Student Code of Conduct.
