Disciplinary Sanctions

Student Conduct Sanctions for Alcohol Violations

A student found to be in-violation of the Student Code of Conduct will be sanctioned in accordance with the procedures and standards outlined in the Document on Student Rights and Welfare. Specifically, a first offense violation of the alcohol policy will most likely result in a student receiving a sanction of disciplinary probation for up to one semester. In addition, the student may be required to complete an alcohol education program. A second offense that occurs while on disciplinary probation may result in the student being suspended from the university for a minimum of one semester. A program of progressive discipline is employed for additional offenses that occur if a student is not on disciplinary probations including but not limited to extended disciplinary probation, loss of university housing and/or participation in an alcohol and other drug evaluation.

The Kutztown University Student Code of Conduct applies to conduct that occurs on university premises, at university sponsored activities, and to off campus conduct that represents a substantial university interest which adversely affects the university community and the pursuit of its objectives.
