Student Conduct Process:
Intake Meeting Checklist


I have the right…

  • … to review the Conduct Rules and Regulations accessible in the Student Code of Conduct by visiting Student Code Article 5.
  • … to expect confidentiality to the extent permitted by the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (“FERPA”) and to waive that confidentiality in writing if I choose. (Please be advised that pursuant to FERPA exceptions, some confidential information may be disclosed without consent, e.g. case of health and safety emergencies).
  • … to consult with an advisor if you are facing suspension for 10 or more days …

I understand that…

  • … if I am a professional student (e.g., Graduate School, Doctoral Candidate), SCCS has an obligation to inform the Graduate School of Studies. These schools and colleges must certify the fitness and character of their students and therefore some information may be shared with them. The school or college may choose to set interim measures during the course of their investigation and may request to handle the incident through their process and procedures.
  • … if I have additional questions, I may contact SCCS at (435) 797-0539.
  • … I will receive important, time-sensitive information from SCCS via email, telephone, and/or postal mail. I understand that I am responsible for this information, that it is my responsibility to inform SCCS of any change in my local address or phone number, and that failure to do so may result in SCCS correspondence being sent to my permanent address on file at the Registrar’s Office.


I understand that…

  • … with the consent of all parties involved, an Agreement can be put in place to resolve the issue. Agreements can be reached when all parties have a shared understanding about what happened andthe respondent accepts responsibility for the alleged violation.
  • … if I choose an Agreement, I waive my right to appeal the outcome.
  • … any decision rendered or sanction assigned by the Hearing Officer is final.
  • … if I am found responsible, I will incur a disciplinary record.
