The Office of Rights and Responsibilities maintains all student conduct files (paper and electronic) for matters involving Student Integrity Code violations. Files are maintained separately from academic transcripts. All student conduct files are maintained for seven years as required by law and/or university policy. Conduct files that resulted in separation from the university community through residential expulsion, suspension, or expulsion from the university will be kept indefinitely. Additionally, student conduct files in which the student withdrew prior to or during the conduct process will be kept indefinitely.
A student’s conduct record is considered educational and may not be disclosed by the university without the written consent of the student to whom the requested information pertains, unless otherwise permitted or required by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).
Academic transcript notations occur only in the event of expulsion from the university.
