Student Conduct Process

About the Student Conduct Process

Each campus, CSU president assigns a campus official or officials to be the student conduct administrator, whose responsibilities are to determine whether to initiate disciplinary action under the Student Conduct Code and to perform duties as proscribed in these procedures.

Once a complaint is filed with the Office of Student Conduct & Ethical Development, the Student Conduct Administrator will determine whether or not there is sufficient evidence to warrant initiating disciplinary action.

Once it is determined that there is sufficient evidence, an email will be sent to the student requesting the student to contact the office to set up an informal conference to discuss the alleged violation. If an agreement can be reached as to an appropriate resolution of the matter, it will be closed and the terms of the resolution shall be put in writing in a settlement agreement and signed by the student charged and the student conduct administrator. Once the settlement agreement is signed by the student, the case is then closed and the terms of the settlement agreement are final.

If a resolution can not be resolved at the informal conference, the student can request a formal hearing.

If a student fails to schedule an informal conference then a hold will placed on the student's record, and the Office of Student Conduct & Ethical Development will initiate the formal hearing process.
