Categories of Violations

Minor violations include those that pose no significant threat to property or individuals, but that indicate a lack of regard for the rights, property, or personal privileges of individuals or groups within the university and neighboring community.

Major violations include any acts that pose a significant threat to personal or university-owned property or to the physical safety or psychological security of individuals and/or groups within the university and neighboring community. Examples of major violations include causing physical harm or reasonable apprehension of harm to another individual or group, theft of individual or university-owned property, or substantial interference with the university’s responsibilities of protecting the health and safety of individuals and groups or ensuring the opportunity of all members to attain their educational goals.

  • Multiple minor violations may result in a student’s case being processed as a major violation.
