Graduation Holds

Graduation Holds

A student may not receive a University degree while a charge or appeal of a violation of the Student Code of Conduct or other University rule, regulation, or policy is pending, and the University may further restrict or withhold the issuance of transcripts or diplomas or the transfer of academic credits during such times as well. Notice of such actions, which the University may make in its sole discretion, shall be provided in writing to the student, the Office of the Registrar, and the student’s academic dean. The restriction on graduation for a pending charge or appeal of violation is limited to cases that are sufficiently serious that disciplinary action, if taken, could result in a sanction of suspension or exclusion. The vice president for students affairs (or the vice president’s designee) or, in cases involving students not on the Evanston campus, the dean of the student’s school shall decide whether to impose a graduation hold and, if so, shall provide proper notification.
