Guidelines for Code of Conduct Violations Reporting and Action – Exhibit B

I. Code of Conduct violations reporting

First offenses by the student would typically result in a verbal and written warning, reporting to the Chief Academic Officer (COA), and loss of credit for the activity noted. A copy may be place in the student file. For repeat offenses or particularly egregious incidents, as determined by the reporting faculty member, or the Student Services team, may be reviewed by the Academic Integrity Committee (AIC) to determine the appropriate college level consequences.

2) Second incidents (based on the student file reports) may result in further disciplinary probation and/or dismissal from the course as determined by the AIC.
