Student Handbook

Interim Felony Conviction Policy

Revised August 5, 2019

DISCLOSURE OF CRIMINAL CONVICTION

The Student must notify the Office of Residence and Commuter Life in writing if they have been convicted of a felony, (the term conviction will be interpreted broadly and will include pleas of no contest, deferred adjudications, withheld judgments and similar dispositions). The Student must provide the Office of Residence and Commuter Life a statement with a complete description of their actions and full details of the charges/conviction/sanctions against them. Failure to notify the Office of Residence and Commuter Life of a felony conviction, prior to University housing occupancy or immediately upon conviction of a felony during University housing occupancy may be grounds for denial of, or immediate removal from, University housing.  For new students it is the student's responsibility to inform the Office of Residence and Commuter Life, separately from the admissions application.  Once the Office of Residence and Commuter Life has been notified by a student that they have been convicted of a felony, the matter will be reviewed. The University shall at all times have the right to determine residency eligibility.
