What Will Happen at the Hearing
To determine if a Code of Conduct violation occurred and if so, what sanctions are appropriate.
You will meet with the conduct administrator for 30-60 minutes in the Office of Student Conduct and Academic Integrity or Housing office. This is typically an informal, information-gathering meeting.
If you do not attend your meeting, a registration hold can be placed on your account and the case will be heard without your participation
Honor Code Hearing
To determine if an Honor Code violation occurred and if so, what sanctions are appropriate.
You will meet with a conduct administrator from the Office of Student Conduct and Academic Integrity to discuss the alleged violation. You may choose to accept the outcome of this discussion or request another hearing in front of the Carolina Judicial Council, a panel of students and faculty.
Carolina Judicial Council Hearing
If you disagree with the findings of your hearing, or feel your case would be more fairly heard by a panel of your peers, you may choose to have a hearing with the Carolina Judicial Council.
Typically, you will meet with a panel of students, staff members and faculty members for one to four hours in the Office of Student Conduct and Academic Integrity conference room.
To determine if a group is collectively responsible for a Code of Conduct violation.
An organization representative may meet with the hearing officer for 30-60 minutes in the Office of Student Conduct and Academic Integrity. If your organization participates in a Critical Incident Investigation Team investigation, this hearing is frequently the next step. One advisor may attend in support of the group.
As a guiding principle, groups will be held responsible for the acts of members when those acts grow out of, or are in any way related to, group life.
