Confidentiality

Student Judicial Affairs and Community Standards is committed to respecting the right to privacy of each student involved in our student conduct process. In general, all students have the right to personally review their own records for information and determine the accuracy of these records. If a student wants to assign those rights, there is a record waiver form available in our office.

Except in very limited cases, the contents of your student conduct record are kept separate from your academic records. Please reference the following two sections and SCampus (Part B, Section 16) for more information.
