The Office of Student Conduct does not take walk-in appointments.  All meetings must be scheduled.

Attend a hearing with the Student Conduct Officer/or designee.  This meeting is your chance through due process to respond to the allegations against you.  If you do not attend a scheduled meeting the process will move forward without your input. Depending on the allegations and the step in the process, this meeting may be with a dean of a department or with the Student Conduct Officer.
