Conduct Records and Transcripts
The Center for Student Rights and Responsibilities maintains a disciplinary record for every student found responsible for a violation of the University Student Code of Conduct. Disciplinary files are considered educational records and cannot be provided to outside parties without the student's permission. However, some employers and graduate and professional schools require that applicants authorize the release of their disciplinary records in order to be considered for employment or admission. A Release Authorization Form is required to release a student's disciplinary file.
The files maintained by the Center for Student Rights and Responsibilities are separate from transcripts, which are maintained by the registrar's office. If a student is suspended or expelled for a disciplinary infraction, that sanction will be noted on his or her transcript. A suspension is noted only during the suspension period; once the suspension has been served, the notation is removed from the transcript. Expulsions are permanently noted, except in certain cases where clemency has been granted.

A student may request a copy of his or her disciplinary record or request that the record be provided to a third party by completing a Release Authorization Form. The completed form should be emailed to the Center for Student Rights and Responsibilities at firstname.lastname@example.org, faxed to (907) 474-7900 or mailed to:
