The standard used in all conduct review cases within this Student Code of Conduct is "preponderance of the evidence." The term "preponderance of the evidence" means that the evidence, considered as a whole, indicates that it is more likely than not that the alleged behavior did violate the Student Code of Conduct.
The burden of proof rests with the institution. The charged student is presumed to be not in violation, and their responsibility must be established to the satisfaction of the student conduct body by a preponderance of the evidence.
