Volunteer Activity Program

Students who have been placed on Strict or Final Disciplinary Probation will have their disciplinary records maintained as active for two years after the student graduates or withdraws from the University. Active discipline records include a summary of the issues involved and/or charged violations of the Student Code of Conduct. The Dean of Students Office maintains these records. The Dean of Students Office will report out information contained in active records to other institutions such as undergraduate colleges or universities, graduate or professional schools, or any federal, state or local Bar Association.

The Dean of Students may shorten the period of time disciplinary action remains active in a student’s file by allowing the student to participate in the Volunteer Activities Program (VAP). Participation requires a request in writing to the Dean of Students, who has sole authority to grant the request. Under normal circumstances, a student must have completed the period of the probation and all other aspects of the prescribed sanction prior to approval for participation. Successful completion of the VAP program will result in shortening the time for the external reporting of the discipline records by the Dean of Students. The student’s file, however, will be retained as inactive.

Suspension and expulsion records are maintained as active files indefinitely.
