After all the term(s) of the suspension have been fulfilled, a student may request that the Disciplinary Suspension notation
be removed from the student’s official transcript.
Prior to doing so, the student must have:
- Re-enrolled at the University upon the completion of their suspension;
- Remain in good disciplinary and academic standing;
- Complete the requirements for graduation.
Upon filing for the final degree audit, a student may submit a request, electronically, to the the Student Conduct Office.
Requests will adhere to the following guidelines:
- Must outline the reasons for removal of the notation.
- Provide information on how the student has grown from the removal incident and document their activities since
returning to the University.
- Will be submitted in a Microsoft Word document
- Will use Times New Roman-font size 12; 1-inch margins
- Will be no more than 3-pages.
Upon receipt and initial review, the Student Conduct Office will forward the request to the Provost’s Office.
Upon receipt of the request, the Provost will convene a committee to review the request. The committee will consist of a
member from each of the following areas:
- Office of the Provost
- Vice President of Student Development and Campus Life
- Office of the Dean of Students
Factors to be considered in review of such requests will include:
- The conduct of the student upon their return to the University to the time of the request;
- The academic attainment of the student;
- The conduct of the student subsequent to the violation;
- The nature of the violation and the severity of any damage, injury, or harm resulting from it; and
- The information provided by the student in the request.
The decision to remove the notation shall rest in the discretion and judgment of a majority of the committee. The Student
Conduct Office will notify the student of the decision of the committee for disciplinary reviews. All reviews are final and
not subject to challenge.
