Formal Conduct Procedures

Overview

In addition to administrative resolutions and other methods of resolving alleged violations of University rules, regulations, and policies outlined in the Student Code of Conduct and elsewhere, Northwestern has several formal disciplinary procedures that are used to hear, manage, and resolve issues of misconduct by Northwestern students. These include the University Hearing and Appeals System (UHAS), the Sexual Assault Hearing and Appeals System (SAHAS), and the Summary Suspension Procedures. In addition, other designated resolution procedures may exist for students on the Chicago campus and in specific schools, programs, or campuses. Please contact appropriate school or University officials for more information about these procedures.
