Need help preparing for a hearing? Don't know anyone who can help advise you? We do!
- Students may request assistance through the Student Conduct Advisor (SCA).
- The program is a resource for students going through or involved in the student conduct process.
- The SCA can provide students with guidance on how to best prepare for a hearing, appeal request or other student conduct process/meeting.

What is the difference between the Student Conduct Advisor and my Advocate?
