For instances where a student has been placed on probation or warning for minor academic of conduct violations, no notation will appear on the transcript.

a. Suspension:

For instances where a student has been suspended due to academic or conduct issues the following notation will appear on the transcript for the duration of the suspension and will be removed once the suspension has expired:

“Suspended, Eligible to Return (term year)

Suspension – is defined as a temporary separation from the University due to an academic or conduct reason, for a specific period, with the option of a possible future return. Examples include academic warnings due to a failure to meet minimum GPA requirements, academic dishonesty or serious conduct issues.

3. Conduct Letter

In instances where a student requests that a transcript be sent to another institution and the student has been suspended or dismissed from the University due to conduct violations, a conduct letter from the Dean of Students Office will accompany the transcript. The conduct letter will include the student’s name; student identification number; transcript notation or either suspended (with date eligible to return) or dismissed; nature of conduct violation; (academic or conduct) for which the student was found responsible; and referral to the Dean of Students Office or other University department for additional information.

4. Pending Academic or Conduct Issues

For serious pending academic or conduct matters involving a student prior to a finding of responsibility and determination of a sanction, a “Hold” will be placed on the release of a transcript until a determination as to responsibility is made and any sanction is imposed.

This policy was developed following national best practices and consistent with written guidance from the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers (AACRAO). It was approved by UCEP following a review by Faculty Council and a 30-day public comment period.
