Responsibilities of the Accused Student
Students will receive in writing (electronically or in hard copy) a notification of the charges being brought against them. The formal hearing will take place no sooner than one week from the date a student is notified that they are to appear before a hearing board. The Conduct Officer and/or a member of the Student Conduct Board (a facilitator) will schedule a time to meet with the student to review the charges and to explain the procedures for a hearing. The accused student shall have viewable access to information (e.g. incident reports and witness statements) related to the charges during this (these) meeting(s). Copies of this information remain the property of the College and will not be distributed to the accused student.
Students have the right and the responsibility in all hearing venues to respond to allegations of violations of the Code of Student Conduct. However, by choosing to remain silent or not appear, the accused student may, nevertheless, be found responsible and face sanctions if the circumstances warrant.
