Due Process Rights

Any Student, Student Group, or Student Organization accused of a violation of the Code of Student Conduct will have the following rights:

    1. The right to request a copy of your individual Student Conduct Record.
    2. The right to not give testimony against oneself.
    3. In an Informal or Formal Resolution, the right to question any individual providing information to the University Student Conduct Board or Hearing Officer. Furthermore, in non-Title IX Hearings, the University reserves the right to provide alternative effective means of questioning a witness in cases where direct questioning is not possible or prevents the hearing from being conducted in a civil and orderly manner. In a Title IX Hearing, the cross examination will be conducted by the party’s advisor.
    4. To know the nature of the evidence against them and the names of witnesses scheduled to appear at a formal hearing.
    5. To receive a written statement of the Charges.
    6. To receive a fair and impartial hearing.
    7. To present evidence and witnesses on their own behalf.
    8. To be accompanied at a hearing by an advisor of their choice and up to two family members.
    9. 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.
    10. To receive a decision based solely on the evidence presented.
    11. To receive a written notice of the decision and sanctions, including rationale for the decision from formal hearings.
    12. To appeal decisions resulting from a formal hearing.
