As part of the student’s due process rights, SR 188.8.131.52.1 and SR 184.108.40.206.2 require the instructor and the department chair to meet with the student and review the evidence before determining whether an academic offense has occurred.
After the meeting, the chair, or the chair’s designee, contacts the Registrar to determine if the student has a prior offense so that the proper penalty can be imposed.
For SACSCOC compliance, please copy email@example.com on the invitation to meet with the student and the request to the Registrar for prior offense information. The Senate Rules governing the procedures are available on our website, and a checklist is provided. Please contact Academic Ombud Services with any questions on this process.
