HoursMonday through Friday8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
You will come and meet with a conduct officer at the date and time on your letter. In that meeting, you will have the opportunity to discuss the alleged violation(s) at length.
The conduct officer will make a decision in your case without the benefit of your input.
Parents are notified if you are under 21 and involved in an alcohol and/or drug violation. We notify your parents because they are an important partner in helping you to be a successful student at UC Denver.
The court process and the student conduct process are entirely independent of one another. The court process determines what criminal statutes were violated as well as any penalties. The student conduct process addresses university behavioral expectations for students as outlined in the Student Conduct of Conduct.
You are allowed to bring one advisor to your hearing. Your advisor may be a parent, friend, counselor, professor, attorney, or another trusted party. The role of the advisor is very specific. The advisor is limited to counseling the student and may not act as a representative of the student, speak on the student's behalf, or participate directly in any hearing. Advisors may not serve in a dual role as a witness in the hearing. University Conduct Officers may also consult with or choose to have University Counsel, in an advisory capacity, present at a hearing. If an advisor becomes disruptive to the process, s/he may be dismissed from the hearing.
As a responsible member of the University of Colorado Denver community, you are expected to familiarize yourself with the Student Code of Conduct. You may download a copy of the Student Code of Conduct to the left. We do not recognize lack of knowledge as an excuse for violating a policy. Reasonable and appropriate behavior will generally help you to avoid violating university policies.
If you are found responsible for violating the Student Code of Conduct, you will be asked to complete a series of educational sanctions. These sanctions are designed to help you succeed in the future, to allow you space and time to reflect on your decisions, to connect you with appropriate resources, to learn something new, and to protect the university community.
A stop will be placed on your student account and you may be asked to have a second hearing with your conduct officer.
The Student Code of Conduct applies to behavior off campus if it adversely affects the University community, poses a threat to safety of persons or property, or damages the institution’s reputation or relationship with the greater community.
Only incidents resulting in suspension or expulsion will appear on your academic transcript. Incidents involving suspension will have the transcript notated for the period of suspension only.
According to FERPA (Family Education Rights and Privacy Act), only you have access to your conduct record unless there is an immediate threat or danger or there is a legitimate "educational need-to-know". You may sign a waiver to allow someone else to inquire about your record, but ultimately, the Office of Community Standards & Wellness will decide if that information should be released. The waiver can be accessed below by clicking on "Forms".
You may request to review your record by filling out and submitting the Waiver Form by contacting our office; After we have received your request, by law we have 45 days to allow you to view your record. Records will be reviewed in the presence of a staff member. You may bring an advisor to view your record. You may not make copies or take photographs of your record, but you may take notes.
You have three (3) business days from the date of your decision letter to initiate an appeal. The scope of the appeal is limited to having the process reviewed unless there is new information available. New information is considered information that was not available at the time of the hearing. This does not include information that the student chose not to share at the time of the hearing. To initiate the appeal, you must complete the CU Denver Student Conduct Appeal form.
