Applicants for Admission with Criminal Backgrounds and Disciplinary History
Op5.01-2 Applicants for Admission with Criminal Backgrounds and Disciplinary History
All application forms for both undergraduate and graduate admissions shall include a question regarding an applicant’s prior disciplinary and criminal history. If a student responds affirmatively, the Undergraduate and Graduate Admissions staffs and the Office of the Dean of Students will review information provided by the applicant and may request additional information and a personal interview with the applicant prior to reaching an admissions decision. The University reserves the right to deny admission to an applicant or admit with restrictions based upon the review of the material provided at admission. Failure to provide accurate and honest information in the admission’s process may result in the denial of admission or rescission prior to enrollment with the University. Any student who fails to provide information regarding prior disciplinary and/or criminal history when applying to the University, and such omission is discovered after the student’s enrollment will be subject to conduct charges and consequences that may include suspension or dismissal.
