The Dean of Students is responsible for maintaining all student conduct records. Copies of such reports and records are to be kept safely and securely in the Division of Student Affairs for a period of seven years after the end of the academic year of said violation(s) to comply with federal recordkeeping requirements. These student conduct records are destroyed at the end of the appropriate time period. Conduct records involving suspension or dismissal will be retained permanently.
Student conduct records may be released to College officials on a “need-to-know” basis. Records may be released to persons and agencies external to the College with the student’s permission, or in compliance with the law. Records that are lawfully subpoenaed or ordered by a judge may be released without the student’s permission. A student’s conduct record may also be released if it is in connection with a health and/or safety emergency.
