If a student receives an Administrative Hearing notice describing the alleged violations as "major", it means that the alleged behavior and/or prior misconduct by the student or student organization warrants the consideration of a suspension or expulsion from the university. If that student or organization is found responsible for the violations in a major case, the sanctions will range from Disciplinary Reprimand to Expulsion and may include other educational sanctions and/or requirements and restrictions related to the incident.
To resolve a case of major nature, students and student organizations will be requested to meet with an administrator in the Office of Judicial Affairs to better understand the options for resolution. Students receiving an Administrative Hearing Notice for a major case are given 10 business days to schedule and attend a meeting.
For more information related to Major Cases as outlined in the Student Disciplinary Regulations, please review Section 5.6.4.
