Below you will find the university’s general outline of the judicial process in which conduct violations are resolved. For more information on the disciplinary system and appeal process, visit: Disciplinary Process and Appeals
- If a student receives a notification that they have committed a Code of Conduct violation, they will be asked to come in for a preliminary review where the Conduct Officer will gather more information about the allegation.
- Next, the student will have the opportunity to meet with a Campus Advisor. The assistance of a Campus Advisor will be available to the student throughout the disciplinary process and is there to help the student navigate and understand the process. Campus Advisors are comprised of Rutgers-Camden faculty and staff.
- Once the Conduct Officer has reviewed the relevant information and completed the Preliminary Review, he or she determines whether there is sufficient information to charge the student with a violation of the University Code of Student Conduct (UCSC). If the student is charged, he or she will answer the charge with "responsible," "not responsible".
- If the respondent answers "responsible"," the Conduct Officer will recommend a sanction:If the student accepts responsibility and the sanction, they will sign an agreement confirming acceptance and waiving the right to a Disciplinary Conference, University Hearing or appeal. If the student accepts responsibility but contests the sanction, they may appeal to the Campus Appeals Committee (see The Conduct Appeal Process).
- If the student answers "not responsible," the case will be heard at a Disciplinary Conference or at a University Hearing.
- A Disciplinary Conference is an informal meeting with a Conduct Officer, who will consider information presented by both parties and determine whether the student is responsible for the charges. If the student is found responsible, the officer will recommend a sanction.
- A University Hearing is a more formal process, in which the University Hearing Board (a panel of students and faculty/staff) considers information presented by the parties and determines whether the student is responsible for the charges. If the student is found responsible, the panel will recommend a sanction.
- Students have the right to appeal the outcome of any proceeding. See the Appeal Process page for more information.
- Students have the possibility of Expunging Disciplinary Records. See the RUC- Expungement.pdf document for details.
