NOTE: Electronic mail or “e-mail” is considered an official method for communication at VCU because it delivers information in a convenient, timely, cost effective, and environmentally aware manner.
The Office of Judicial Affairs & Academic Integrity will send all correspondence to students, faculty and staff via e-mail.
A hold will be placed on a student’s registration if:
- The student fails to schedule or attend a scheduled appointment with the Coordinator of Judicial Affairs.
- The student fails to complete the Rules & Procedures Options Form
- The student fails to complete the Public Service or Educational Experience portion of a sanction imposed by the Coordinator for Judicial Affairs.
The hold will remain in effect until the student has met with the Coordinator or completed their requirements. This may keep a student from amending their schedule or registering for classes.
The Office of Judicial Affairs & Academic Integrity receives and reviews the allegation. A notification is sent via VCU E-MAIL to the student, inviting them to schedule an appointment. The judicial officer meets with the accused and witnesses, as necessary and appropriate. The student completes the Rules and Procedures Options Form choosing from three options for adjudication of the matter:
- Administrative Adjudication: the judicial officer determines if the student is responsible and if sanctions should be imposed.
- University Hearing Board: A panel with faculty, staff, administration, and student representatives determines if the student is responsible and if sanctions should be imposed.
- Withdrawal from the University: The student opts to withdraw from the University before the judicial process runs its course; a hold is placed on the student’s future registration at the University.
Determination is sent via VCU E-MAIL to the student.
