All students who plan to access campus during the spring semester must obtain a COVID-19 diagnostic test up to seven days prior to the start of their in-person classes and provide negative test results. Learn more about our reopening plans and our complete campus access policies.
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 his or her responsibility must be established to the satisfaction of the student conduct body by a preponderance of the evidence.
