After finishing the investigation, your hearing officer will decide whether or not to issue charges. If your hearing officer issues charges, this doesn’t mean you have been found in violation. Rather it means that the investigation produced enough evidence that we’re moving forward rather than closing our file.
If your hearing officer decides to issue charges, he or she will send you a Charge and Process Form (CPF). Your hearing officer likely described this form during your preliminary conference. If you are confused about what to do with the CPF, take a look at the example found on this page. If you still have questions, please call your hearing officer.
Remember: a charge is not a finding! It just means we are going to continue with the second half of our process. Students who believe their conduct did not violate the code can request a hearing to resolve their case.
