Volunteer Activities Program

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.

For more information, please contact the Dean of Students Office at (305) 284-5353 or doso@miami.edu.
