Students are responsible for knowing the following:
33. Respondents alleged to have violated this Code in ways that may result in penalties less than expulsion or suspension are subject to a conduct conference with a Conduct Officer. The following procedural protections are provided to respondents in conduct conferences:
- Written notice of the specific charges at least two (2) business days prior to the scheduled conference, unless waived by the student.
- Reasonable access to the case file prior to or during the conference. The case file consists of materials that would be considered "educational records," under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (and subsequent revisions); personal notes of College staff members or complainants are not included.
- An opportunity to respond to the information gathered and to have present appropriate and relevant witnesses.
- A right to be accompanied by an advisor, as provided in Part 34-36 of this Code.
- Respondents who fail to appear for a conduct conference after proper notice and reasonable follow-up will have the case reviewed in their absence. The Conduct Officer will assign a sanction based on the information available in the case file.
- A Conduct Officer's decision may be appealed under the criteria listed in APPEALS Parts 41-43 of this Code.
