Process

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

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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".
  4. 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).
  5. If the student answers "not responsible," the case will be heard at a Disciplinary Conference or at a University Hearing.
  6. 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.
  7.  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.
  8.  Students have the right to appeal the outcome of any proceeding. See the Appeal Process page for more information.
