Preparing for a conduct hearing

This page is designed to assist you in understanding the university conduct process and helping you prepare for a formal conduct hearing. If you have questions at any point in the process, make sure you take the initiative and ask someone for assistance. You will be assigned a student advisor when you receive your hearing notification. It's up to you to get in touch with that person and set up a time to meet as soon as possible before your hearing. If you have any trouble contacting your student advisor, please contact the Office of Conduct & Mediation at 862-3377 as soon as possible.
