Sanctions and Other Recommendations

Following a decision of guilt, the Graduate APIC will discuss whether to uphold or modify the instructor-imposed sanction. All five members will discuss their recommendations for sanction; the three faculty members shall determine the sanction by vote. The Graduate AIC will then make its recommendation for sanction to the Vice President for Academic Affairs. The Vice President for Academic Affairs will have the ultimate responsibility for meeting out sanctions. These sanctions will also be communicated to the aggrieved parties in the case and made a part of the public record of the university. Possible sanctions included, but are not limited to:

Expulsion from the institution

Expulsion from the graduate program



Reprimand (oral or written)

Forced withdrawal from course

Change in course grade

Assigned work project
