84 NSU STUDENT HANDBOOK 2023-24 Conduct sanctions shall not be made part of the respondent’s permanent academic record, but shall become part of the respondent’s conduct record. The respondent’s conduct record containing conduct sanctions other than suspension, expulsion, revoking admission and/or a degree, or withholding a degree, will be expunged seven (7) years after the date of the original finding of a violation of the Student Code. The respondent’s conduct record containing any of the four conduct sanctions above shall be maintained permanently. Where restitution is required of a respondent, the institution reserves the right to disclose all portions of the conduct file as may be necessary to obtain a judgment in a court of competent jurisdiction. Such files shall be preserved at least until all necessary compensation has been obtained. Students enrolled in one institution shall be held accountable for their conduct while visiting all other institutions. Students may be required, as a condition of continued enrollment, to appear at the institution where the alleged misconduct took place, at their own expense, for a conduct hearing and to answer allegations based on their conduct while at that institution. Any conduct sanction imposed by one institution shall be effective at all other institutions. A respondent suspended at one institution shall not be able to enroll at another institution until the period of suspension has ended. A respondent who has been expelled from one Institution may not enroll at another institution. When a respondent is brought forward on allegations of misconduct by another institution, any conduct sanction issued after a finding of a violation shall be determined by the institution that brought forward the allegations of misconduct.
