A. Determination of Conduct Charges and Resolution

  1. Any person may allege that a student or student organization violated the student code of conduct.
  2. Upon review of any allegation, the Student Conduct Administrator or a designee will determine the appropriate conduct process for resolution and appropriate conduct charges. Possible conduct policy violations (Article III, Section B), mitigating and aggravating factors and prior misconduct will be considered in determining the resolution path.
    1. The Administrative Hearing Process (Article IV, B) will be appropriate when there is no possibility of separation or expulsion from the university being imposed as a sanction.
    2. The Formal Hearing Process (Article IV, C) will be appropriate if there is any possibility of separation or expulsion from the university being imposed as a sanction or if the incident had a significant impact to the university community or other individuals.
    3. The allegation will be referred to a different resolution process if there are possible policy violations that fall outside the scope of the Student Code of Conduct.
    4. The allegation will be dismissed if the available information supports that the incident does not fall within the scope of the Student Code of Conduct or any other policy.
