Violations of the student code of conduct can have a wide spectrum of consequences. They range from simple warnings to expulsion from the academic institution. It is true that expulsion is traditionally reserved for the most serious and repeated violations, but it is still a tool that schools use when they deem it necessary.
Other punishments may seriously endanger your ability to complete school. This, in turn, has an impact on your ability to apply for future job opportunities and your entire life going forward.
Code of conduct hearing officers have the power to revoke campus housing, scholarships, university employment, and involvement in school activities. They can also place you on probation and subject you to further monitoring by the conduct office. Additionally, your disciplinary record may affect your applications for graduate programs, transferring education and your options for professional licensing.
