The following sanctions may be applied to any individual, group of individuals, or organization for violations of the University Conduct Code, University policies, or guidelines. However, the University is not limited to these sanctions or to the application of only one of these sanctions. Sanctions will be part of the student’s file for seven years from the date of graduation or separation from the University. Expulsion sanctions are kept for 25 years. Sanctions for violations of this Conduct Code are progressive. Prior disciplinary actions will be reviewed and students with prior records may receive more severe sanctions than students with no prior records. Any student found responsible of an additional offense while serving a prior disciplinary probation or suspension may be suspended or expelled, depending on the circumstances. Notwithstanding the progressive nature of sanctions, the University reserves its right to impose any level of sanction it deems appropriate and warranted.
