In determining appropriate sanctions, a student’s present and past disciplinary record, the nature of the offense, the severity of any damage, injury, or harm resulting from the prohibited behavior, and other factors relevant to the matter will be considered. The following list of sanctions is illustrative rather than exhaustive. The UA reserves the right to create other reasonable sanctions or combine sanctions as it deems appropriate.
- Warning: A written notice that the student is violating or has violated the code and that further misconduct may result in more severe disciplinary action.
- Probation: A written warning which includes the probability of more severe disciplinary sanctions if the student is found to be violating the code during a specified the probationary period.
- Denial of Benefits: Specific benefits may be denied a student for a designated period of time.
- Restitution: A student may be required to reimburse the university or other victims related to the misconduct for damage to or misappropriation of property, or for reasonable expenses incurred.
- Discretionary Sanction: Discretionary sanctions include community service work or other uncompensated labor, educational classes, counseling, or other sanctions that may be seen as appropriate to the circumstances of a given matter. Costs incurred by the student in fulfilling a discretionary sanction will be the responsibility of the student.
- Restricted Access: A student may be restricted from entering certain designated areas and/or facilities or from using specific equipment for a specified period of time.
- Suspension: The separation of the student from the University for a specified period of time, after which the student may be eligible to return. Conditions under which the suspension may be removed and for re-enrollment will be included in the notification of suspension. During the period of suspension, the student may be prohibited from participation in any activity authorized by the UA and may be barred from all property owned or controlled by the university, except as stated on the notification.
- Expulsion: Expulsion is considered to be the permanent separation of the student from the university. The student may be prohibited from participation in any activity authorized by the university and may be barred from property owned or controlled by UA except as stated on the notice of expulsion.
- Revocation of a Degree: Any degree previously conferred by the university may be revoked if the student is found to have committed academic misconduct in pursuit of that degree.
Student groups or organizations found to have violated provisions of the code may be put on probation or sanctioned, which may include loss of university-related benefits and access to university facilities and university-held funds.
