Standards for Institutional Student Conduct


Investigation and Disciplinary Proceedings

ABAC Standards for Institutional Student Conduct Investigation and Disciplinary Proceedings reflect the Georgia Board of Regents Policy, Section 4.6.5 at: http://www.usg.edu/policymanual/section4/policy/C332

This Policy establishes minimum procedural standards for investigations and resolutions of alleged student conduct violations, which each institution must incorporate into its respective student conduct policies. The purpose of this Policy is to ensure uniformity in the quality of investigations while providing for due process that affords fairness and equity in all student conduct investigations.

These procedures apply to matters relating to student misconduct, except matters relating to academic dishonesty, which may be covered under separate institutional policies. ABAC shall inform students of their procedures governing student misconduct complaints and investigations.

Students participating in Study Abroad programs are expected to follow the ABAC Student Code of Conduct while also complying with the laws of the region they are visiting. See the Study Abroad Handbook for clarification.
