When the expectations in the SCC are breeched or students behave
in a manner inconsistent with the goals of the University, students
will meet with the Student Conduct Officer (SCO).
The SCO seeks the facts of the situation which will then determine
how the process will proceed.
Often, cases are resolved through this meeting with the SCO, however;
if a situation cannot be resolved informally, a decision will be
made at a more formal hearing. The procedure for hearings is outline
in Appendix A-II in the SCC.
