The Judicial Diagram is an important component to Judicial Affairs as it reflects how the student judicial process works.  Please see the Judicial Affairs booklet (PDF, 860KB) or view the written description of the process below. 

  • Step 1:  Violation is reported to the Judicial Affairs office.
  • Step 2:  Violation is investigated. 
    • If no evidence of a violation is found, then the case is dismissed and the process ends.
    • If evidence of a violation is found, proceed to Step 3.
  • Step 3: Informal disposition with a judicial officer and the accused.
  • Step 4:  One of three things can happen after the informal disposition:
    • The case is dismissed and the process ends; OR
    • The case is not dismissed and the resolution/sanction(s) are accepted.  Possible sanctions include verbal warning, written warning, disciplinary probation and suspension/expulsion (permanent); OR
