The sanctions listed below may be imposed upon any student found to have violated the Student Code of Conduct. The listing of the sanctions should not be construed to imply that students are entitled to progressive discipline. The sanctions may be used in any order and/or combination that the University deems appropriate for the conduct in question. Students should be advised that conduct violations could impact privileges associated with the University, including but not limited to leadership/officer roles and/or holding positions of influence.
- Warning – A verbal or written notice to the student that the student is in violation of or has violated University regulations.
- Probation – A written reprimand for violation of specific regulations. Probation is for a designated period of time and includes the probability of more severe disciplinary sanctions if the student is found to be violating any University regulation(s) during the probationary period.
- Loss of Privileges – Denial of specified privileges for a designated period of time.
- Fines – Monetary penalties may be imposed, as determined or approved by the University.
- Restitution – Compensation for loss, damage or injury. This may take the form of appropriate service and/or monetary or material replacement.
- Discretionary Sanctions – Work assignments, service to the University or other related discretionary assignments.
- University Suspension – Separation of the student from the University for a definite period of time, after which the student is eligible to return. Conditions for readmission may be specified.
- University Expulsion – Permanent separation of the student from all University locations.
- Revocation of degree – Revocation of a previously conferred degree or certificate. Students whose degree award conferrals are revoked remain responsible for fulfilling financial obligations to Chamberlain, to federal, state and local governments and to private loan providers.
- Rescinding admission – Rescinding admission to the University is generally a permanent decision applicable to all programs. Rescinding admission is at the sole discretion of the director of admission and not subject to the conduct procedures noted above.
- Denial of admission – Denial of admission to the program is generally a permanent decision applicable to all programs. Denial of admission is at the sole discretion of the director of admission and not subject to the conduct procedures above.
More than one sanction listed above may be imposed for any single violation. In each case in which a program-specific Professional Review Committee determines that a student has violated the Student Code of Conduct, sanction(s) shall be determined and imposed. Following the decision of the Professional Review Committee, the conduct manager or designee shall advise the student in writing of its determination and of the sanction(s) imposed, if any.
Other than University suspension and University expulsion, disciplinary sanctions shall not be made part of the student’s permanent academic record but shall become part of the student’s disciplinary record. Upon graduation, the student may petition the program administrator to have their confidential disciplinary record expunged or partially expunged of disciplinary actions. Whether or not to grant the request to expunge or partially expunge shall be at the University’s discretion.
