Student Conduct



Students whose behavior
violates any of the student conduct regulations in OAR 576-015-0015 or
576-015-0020 are subject to one or more of the following:

(1) Warning: Official
notice to a student that his or her conduct or actions are in violation of the
student conduct regulations. The continuation of such conduct or actions may
result in further disciplinary action.

(2) Required Educational
Activities: Mandatory participation in educational activities or programs of
community service.

(3) Restitution:
Reimbursement by dollar amount, by transfer of property, or by provision of
services to the University or a member of the University community in
accordance with the nature of the violation and in an amount not in excess of
actual expenses, damages, or losses incurred.

(4) Restrictions: Removal
from a living group, or from the use of specific University facilities, or
denial of the use of a vehicle on campus, or other restrictions consistent with
the violation committed.

(5) Disciplinary Probation:
Placement on probationary status during which there is observation and review
of behavior and the student must demonstrate compliance with the student conduct
regulations. A student on probation is not in "good standing" with
the University. Terms of the probation will be determined at the time the
probation is imposed and may include loss of privileges, restitution, and/or
required educational activities.

(6) Disciplinary

(a) Deferred Suspension:
Placement on deferred suspension status during which there is observation and
review of behavior. If the student is found to further violate University
regulations during this period then the student is suspended without further
hearings. Deferred suspension may be for a period of one term up to and
including the remainder of a student's enrollment at the University;

(b) Suspension:

(A) Exclusion from the
University for a specific period of time. Suspended students are denied the
privileges and services provided to currently enrolled students, including
residing in University-owned or recognized student housing, attending class, or
using other University services or facilities. Suspension is generally for one
year; however, the period of suspension may be specified for any period;

(B) The conditions of
suspension take effect immediately after the student has been informed of the
decision. If an appeal is filed, the imposition of the suspension will be
delayed until the conclusion of the appeal process. However, if a pending
disciplinary hearing or appeal may result in suspension, as determined by the
Student Conduct Program, awarding of the academic degree sought will be
postponed pending the outcome of the disciplinary hearing.

(7) Expulsion: Permanent
Suspension (see section (6) of this rule).

(8) Degree Revocation.

(9) Students whose behavior
violates OAR 576-015-0020(1) (academic dishonesty) are subject to additional
academic sanctions, including failing the course, removal from an academic
department, and removal from a college, that may be imposed by the instructor,
department chair or dean in accordance with Academic Regulation 15, available
in the Schedule of Classes.
