Judicial Affairs Frequently Asked Questions
1. I've been told that I've had a hold placed on my account by Judicial Affairs: What does this mean? How do I get it removed?
The Office of Judicial Affairs places holds on a student's account, when that student has failed to complete a required judicial sanction by the mandated deadline. Both the sanction and its deadline are clearly listed in the meeting outcome/hearing outcome. This hold can only be removed with the completion of the sanction. Please contact the Office of Judicial Affairs if you have questions regarding the hold on your student account.
2. My Judicial Outcome Letter says that I will be removed from the residence halls. Can I still attend class? What are my options?
● Unless the meeting/hearing outcome
later states otherwise, a student who has been removed from the
residence halls, regardless of the duration of that sanction, is not
only allowed to attend classes, but strongly encouraged to do so.
● For short-term residence hall separations, it is recommended that the student commute, arrange temporary lodging with a close friend/family member, or take advantage of the local hotels in Danbury.
● For long-term residence hall separations, it is recommended that the student explore their options at Brookview Commons, Chestnut St. Apartments, or find alternative lodging in the Greater Danbury area.
3. I've been suspended/expelled from the university? What does this mean? What are my options?
● Suspension - A student who has
received suspension as a judicial sanction has been temporarily
separated from all universities with the Connecticut State
University System. The hearing outcome notice will always prescribe
the date and conditions upon which the student may petition for
readmission to the CSU system. A suspended student is restricted
from taking online and normal university classes, and must contact
either the Director of Judicial Affairs or the Dean of Students to
receive permission for coming on campus for any reason whatsoever.
● Expulsion - A student who has received expulsion as a judicial sanction has been permanently separated from all universities within the Connecticut State University System. An expelled student is restricted from taking online and normal university classes, and must contact either the Director of Judicial Affairs or the Dean of Students to receive permission for coming on campus for any reason whatsoever.
