When students are found responsible for a violation of the Code of Community Standards, their Case Administrator or Board will develop and Action Plan that promotes student learning, addresses the impact of the student’s actions, connects the student with campus resources, and ultimately guides the student towards being a successful member of the campus community. This page provides an overview of some of the common sanctions assigned to students as part of their Action Plan.

The student’s outcome letter will provide all information needed to complete the requirements, including guidelines and deadlines. It is the student’s responsibility to adhere to any and all sanction requirements until/unless they are informed in writing of approved modifications.
