What Does it Mean to be on Conduct Probation?
Conduct probation is a period of observation and review
during which a student must demonstrate a willingness and ability
to comply with all University regulations. Conduct probation is
different and separate from academic probation, which
occurs when students fail to meet the minimum cumulative GPA
requirement of 2.0. Conduct probation is noted in a student's
conduct record, but not on the student's academic transcript.
The probation period might be set for a semester, an academic
year, or even through a student's graduation. Sometimes
stipulations are attached to conduct probation. Once the
stipulations are met and/or the period of observation is over, the
student returns to good standing.
Some of the stipulations of conduct probation can include:
- Students are prohibited from participation in Greek
- Involvement in key campus leadership positions is
- Housing options and participation in the room selection lottery
- Students may be prohibited from entering residence halls,
campus apartments, and other University facilities.
- Membership in student organizations and participation in
University-sponsored activities may be withheld. This could
include participation in study abroad programs.
- A psychological or drug/alcohol assessment by a certified
professional could be required. Students are held to any
recommendations that result from the assessment.
Further behavioral incidents can result in extending the terms
of conduct probation, a return to conduct probation, and/or the
student can be suspended from the University for a designated
period of time.
