Student Code

The Master of Criminal Justice program has a ZERO TOLERANCE POLICY regarding any violation of the WSU Student Code.  As such, all graduate students are expected to understand and adhere to the Code.

Any violation of the Student Code, as determined by the course instructor and the Graduate Director, may result in the following academic sanctions:

     1. The first violation of the Student Code may result in the Student being placed
         on Departmental Probation.  The length of the probationary period will be in   

         accordance to the seriousness of the violation and determined by the Graduate
         Director

     2. A second violation of the Student Code may result in the Student being
         removed from the program.

 

 

The following process will be used to determine if a violation of the Student Code has occurred and the type of length of sanction, if any, to be imposed:

     1. The course instructor makes a determination that a violation of the Student
         Code has occurred

     2. The course instructor may discuss the offense with the Student and determine
          if a formal review is needed (Instructor review with the Student is not required)

     3. Should a formal review be necessary, the course instructor will forward his/her
         determination of a violation, along with all supporting documents, to the
         Graduate
Director

     4. The Graduate Director will review the supporting documents provided by the
         course instructor.  Upon completion of the
review, the Graduate Director will
         either agree or disagree with the course instructor's determination of a
         violation
.  If the Graduate Director disagrees with the instructor, no further
        action will be taken and both the instructor and student will be notified

     5. Should the Graduate Director agree with the course instructor's determination
         of a violation, he/she will administer the appropriate departmental sanction and
         forward the course instructor's documentation,
his/her justification(s) for agreement
         with the instructor, and the type and length of departmental sanction to
the Dean of
         Students for further academic review

 

Should the Student wish to appeal the departmental sanction, he/she must follow the procedures outlined in the University's Policies and Procedures Manual for Student Code violations.
