The purpose of the Student Code of Conduct and the Conduct Review Process is to support the university in maintaining a safe, healthy and positive campus community and online environment for living, learning and working where individuals act lawfully and in compliance with university policies and rules, and act with honesty, integrity, civility and respect for themselves and others. 

Any behavior that is inconsistent with these goals, whether on or off campus, is prohibited and constitutes a violation of the Student Code of Conduct.

All students must adhere to and review the Student Code of Conduct. In addition, please learn more about sanctions and the Conduct Review Process. In addition, students are expected to be familiar with the university’s Computer and Technology Use Policy and the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).

The Johnson & Wales Conduct Review Process, like the Student Code of Conduct, is designed to help the university maintain a safe, healthy and positive environment for living, learning and working, where individuals act lawfully and in compliance with university policies and rules, and act with honesty, integrity, civility and respect for themselves and others and for the university community and the communities in which we live.

The Conduct Review Process is used to support and enforce the Student Code of Conduct by providing procedures for determining whether a student is responsible or not responsible for a violation of the Student Code of Conduct.

WHY HAS COMMUNITY STANDARDS AND CONDUCT PLACED A HOLD ON MY ACCOUNT?

Below are some reasons why you may have a Conduct hold:

  • You did not complete the sanctions you were assigned. All sanctions are listed on the Hearing Outcome notice that your hearing officer e-mailed to your JWU e-mail account after your hearing. Refer back to this form and follow through with anything you have not completed. If you have questions about a sanction, please contact your hearing officer directly.
  • Some of your sanctions may have very specific instructions, to avoid a hold being placed on your account, follow the directions as they are outlined in your Hearing Outcome notice.
  • You did not successfully pass the Alcohol Edu sanction you were assigned. A passing score is a 75% or higher. If you did not receive a 75%, you must take the course again.
  • You did not respond to a request to set up an appointment with a hearing officer. Check your student e-mail account to ensure that you did not miss any e-mail communication from Community Standards and Conduct. If you are unsure why a Conduct hold appears on your account, please contact Community Standards and Conduct.

Paying Fines

All fines must be paid through Student Academic & Financial Services. A receipt of payment must be returned to the Community Standards and Conduct office by or before the sanction is due.

To make arrangements to pay a fine if you are not on-campus, please call 1-800-343-2565.

Please print or keep a copy of documentation that proves that you have successfully completed a sanction. You may be asked to provide copies to Community Standards and Conduct.
