Sanctions for Violations of Oregon Administrative Rules Pertaining to Student Conduct

OAR 576-015-0030  


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 Suspension:
    1. 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;
    2. Suspension:
      1. 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;
      2. 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.
