6.4.4 INITIAL DETERMINATION
220.127.116.11 By the Registrar
18.104.22.168.1 Allegation; Opportunity of Student to Respond
If evidence of possible falsification or misuse of academic records comes to the attention of the Registrar, the Registrar shall review the evidence and shall decide whether it warrants an allegation. If so, the student shall be invited to meet with the Registrar to discuss the allegation and to state their case. The Registrar shall set a deadline for the student to respond to the invitation to the meeting, but the deadline shall be no fewer than 7 days after the invitation is issued. The Registrar shall make a reasonable effort to schedule a meeting with the student as soon as possible after the evidence is received.
The Registrar shall consider the evidence and the student's response and shall decide whether the student committed the alleged offense, based on the standard of proof. Any such finding shall be made within 7 days after the meeting with the student, unless the student consents in writing to an extension of this time. However, if the student fails to respond to the invitation to meet within the deadline or fails to attend a meeting that was agreed upon by all parties, the Registrar may make a finding immediately thereafter.

22.214.171.124.3 Penalty and Right of Appeal
If the Registrar finds the student committed the alleged offense, the Registrar shall decide either to impose no penalty or to recommend a specific penalty of suspension, dismissal, expulsion, or revocation of a degree to the Provost. The student has the right to appeal a finding that an offense has occurred and any recommended penalty, pursuant to SR 6.4.5.
If the Registrar finds the student did not commit the offense, the Registrar shall so notify the student. If the Registrar finds the student committed the offense, the Registrar shall notify the student and the Academic Ombud of the finding and any recommended penalty (even if none). If a penalty of suspension, dismissal, expulsion, or revocation of a degree is recommended, the Provost shall also be notified.
126.96.36.199 Conditions for Readmittance After Dismissal
If the Registrar recommends a penalty of dismissal, the Registrar may suggest conditions under which the University Appeals Board and the Provost should consider approving a student's petition to be readmitted. The Registrar shall notify the student of any such conditions.
