Repeat Offenses

The Dean of Students Office will take the following factors into consideration when determining sanctions for repeat offenses:

  • After the first incident(s) of academic misconduct, was the student assigned discretionary sanctions designed to educate the student?
  • Did this incident occur before or after the Dean of Students Office addressed the first case of academic misconduct?
  • Are the new allegations less severe, the same level, or more severe than prior offenses?
  • Is the nature of this offense the same as prior offenses?
  • What is the totality of the student’s disciplinary record?
  • Are there any mitigating circumstances that should be taken into consideration?

If a student has received a warning as a prior sanction, the minimum sanction imposed for a repeat offense is one-year disciplinary probation.

If a student has been placed on disciplinary probation as a past sanction but the disciplinary probation period has expired, the minimum sanction imposed for a repeat offense is two-years disciplinary probation.

If a student is currently on disciplinary probation for academic misconduct, the Assistant Director of Student Conduct will consult with the Associate Dean of Students to determine whether or not the allegations should warrant suspension or expulsion.

If a student has been suspended in the past for academic misconduct, the recommended sanction imposed for a repeat offense is expulsion.
