Disciplinary sanctions, with the exception of University expulsion, shall not be made part of the student’s permanent academic record (official transcript), but shall become part of the student’s confidential disciplinary record, subject to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).

Pending cases will be retained as long as is administratively necessary as determined by the Conduct Administrator. Cases involving expulsion or suspension will be retained indefinitely. Other student conduct files will be retained for seven (7) years following the incident or until the student leaves the university, whichever is longer. If a student under the age of twenty-one (21) is found responsible for a violation of University policy involving alcohol and/or other drugs, the University may notify the student’s parent(s) or guardian(s).
