Complainant Information

Complainant Information

Any member of the University community may file charges against any student for an alleged violation of the Student Code of Conduct. If you are reporting a student for an alleged violation, you may be asked to act as the complainant for the incident. Submit a potential Student Code of Conduct violation.

Conduct Report Form

Please fill out the form below and provide a description of the incident in question which you feel may be a violation of the Student Code of Conduct. Include all relevant information such as names, dates, time, places, evidence, etc. Be as thorough as possible. Please refer to Section 6: Non-Academic Misconduct Complaints and Procedures in the Student Code of Conduct for a full description of your rights and responsibilities in the conduct process or visit with the Associate Dean of Students if you have any questions.

Important Note: Upon review of the Complainant(s) statement, the University reserves the right to identify the sections of the Student Code of Conduct (and/or any University policy) that may have been violated based solely off of the written report. Please keep in mind that a completed Conduct Report Form, in and of itself, does not necessarily infer that a violation has occurred.

Conference/Hearing Process, Rights & Responsibilities

What happens after I submit the allegation(s)?

The assigned hearing officer will determine whether or not the allegations constitute a potential violation of the Student Code of Conduct. If it is determined that a violation of the Student Code of Conduct has occurred, the assigned hearing officer will meet with the respondent to discuss the allegations. If the incident is being handled administratively, an outcome will be sent via email within 10 business days of the Administrative Conference with the respondent. As the complainant in the situation, you will also receive notification of the outcome.

An administrative hearing decision may be appealed but another hearing will not be conducted unless the Appeal Board provides direction to do so. If you would like to appeal the decision, appeals must be submitted within ten (10) University business days of the date printed on the decision notification.
