Administrative Hearing & Agreed Resolution

Administrative Hearing - Level 1 Case

An Administrative Hearing is a semi-formal meeting in which relevant facts and information regarding an alleged violation of university policy is presented to an administrator in the Office of Student Conduct. Any decisions regarding responsibility and related sanctions are issued as recommendations to the Dean of Students in making a final determination.  Often, this option will result in an Agreed Resolution.

In a Level 1 case, an Administrative Hearing must be requested by the student or student organization, and that request must be granted by an administrator in the Office of Student Conduct. In doing so, the student waives their right to a hearing before the Student Conduct Hearing Board.

For more information related to Administrative Hearings in Level 1 Cases as outlined in the Student Disciplinary Regulations, please review Section 5.7.

Agreed Resolutions

At any time before the hearing, the Office of Student Conduct and the accused student or student organization may reach agreement upon a reasonable sanction for conduct, called an Agreed Resolution. The resolution, approved by the Dean of Students, waives the right and need for a hearing. Discussions regarding agreed resolutions shall not be introduced against the accused as evidence of responsibility in disciplinary hearings.

For more information related to Agreed Resolutions as outlined in the Student Disciplinary Regulations, please review Section 5.6.
