Registering for classes during disciplinary probation is also impeded, as a hold is placed on a student's account preventing them from registering.Students may temporarily remove this hold by going to the OSC website and filling out the Hold Lift Request form.
"Students with criminal records should be given the same opportunities and people without criminal records should be given, so by extension, the university should treat them equally," said junior philosophy major Elizabeth Westbrook.
"There's no way to improve your life station without a decent education." After the procedural part of the application is completed, along with all forms and consultations, the OSC will forward all of its information regarding a student to the director of the Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities.
Student opinions on these hurdles and even these potential students' admission is mixed. If it's a petty crime, they should have the same [opportunities as everyone else], but if it's something serious like murder, they should have more processes to go through," said Joseph Lopez, a junior mechanical engineering major.
Other students, however, see higher education as an opportunity for previously delinquent students to improve their potential and their current situation, whatever that may be.
Of those applications, 497 were cleared for admission, with or without conditions, and 39 did not receive clearance for admission.
Additionally, 255 applicants never followed up with Student Conduct after additional information was requested.Non-clearance represents an "unfavorable" recommendation, after which the appropriate offices may uphold the recommendation and as such, a student is not admitted to the university.There is not an appeal process for lack of admission on the grounds of past misconduct.For example, such students are not permitted to occupy a leadership position in any student organization or represent the university in any official capacity, according to the OSC website.Students under disciplinary probation may still attend classes, however.If you like, you can revise your work based on this feedback and re-submit it to be again in the second submission period OR you may make a completely new submission.
