Provided that an undergraduate student has supplied the University with necessary information about dependency, the parent (or legal guardian) of a dependent undergraduate student is usually contacted by Community Expectations and Restorative Practices concerning disciplinary outcomes of violations of the Honor and Student Conduct Codes involving the following circumstances:
- Probationary status, indicating that a subsequent infraction will likely result in suspension or expulsion from the University;
- Suspension or expulsion from the University; and/or
- A second or subsequent alcohol-related violation committed by a student under age 21.
Notification concerning disciplinary matters is intended to involve the larger network of persons concerned about the student, the student’s behavior, and the student’s handling of outcomes.
A dependent second-year, junior, or senior student may submit a written request that no notification be made, specifying extenuating circumstances that the student believes warrant deviation from typical parental notification practices. Such requests are evaluated on a case-by-case basis. Notification concerning student discipline is not provided to parents/legal guardians of graduate students.
