Disciplinary Hearing Procedures

As members of the Rutgers community, all students are expected to know and understand the University Code of Student Conduct. This information is available from the Office of Student Conduct. The code outlines behaviors and actions for which students, if found responsible, can be suspended or expelled from the university, as well as those violations for which students can be sanctioned but may not be separated from the university.

The Board of Governors of Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, has established a list of offenses that may result in separation from the university. These offenses are handled through the University Code of Student Conduct. (See the University Policies and Procedures section of the General Information chapter in this catalog.) In addition, the university has established hearing procedures for use in instances in which charges against a student are not of sufficient gravity to lead to separation from the university. This information is also available from the Office of Student Conduct.
