Student Conduct and Academic Integrity


Reference Check

Most professional schools, graduate programs and high-security jobs require student applicants to provide academic and judicial records as part of the application process.  

Disciplinary Reference Check

Begin the process of requesting your records by completing the Disciplinary Reference Check Form. You must also include a signed FERPA Waiver [pdf] so we can release this information to you.

 
Procedure

A disciplinary reference check can take up to 10 days, so be mindful of your application deadline. Once the form is completed and signed, our office will return it directly to the institution to which you are applying.

When filling out the Disciplinary Reference Check Request, you will be asked to indicate how you would like the form returned. Provide either a fax number for the requesting institution or a pre-addressed, postage-paid envelope. 

A disciplinary reference request only provides information from the Office of Student Conduct and Academic Integrity. If necessary, you will have to contact the Office of the Registrar separately for records regarding your academic standing.

 

Maintenance of Records

Records regarding code of conduct violations will be maintained for a period of seven years. If you were suspended due to a code of conduct violation, your records will be kept permanently.

Records pertaining to Honor Code violations by graduate students will be retained by our office for six years after graduation or six years after the last date of enrollment. Records pertaining to Honor Code violations by undergraduate students will be retained by our office for six years from the last day of the spring semester of the academic year of the offense.
