- To be present at the hearing during the presentation of any evidence or material on which a recommendation will be made. If a Student, Student Organization, or Student Group fails to attend the hearing, it will be held in their absence.
- To receive a decision based solely on the evidence presented.
- To receive a written notice of the decision and sanctions, including rationale for the decision from formal hearings.
