- Sanctions for violating the Standards of Student Conduct under the University of Alabama at Birmingham Student Conduct Code may include one or more of the following:
- Conduct Warning: The student is warned that further misconduct may result in more severe conduct sanctions.
- Conduct Probation: The student may continue attending the University, but is subject to restrictions and/or conditions imposed by the University for a specified period of time. Further violation of the Code while under conduct probation will result in more severe sanctions including the possibility of expulsion.
- Suspension: The student is separated from the University for a specified period of time and excluded from participation in University-sponsored activities.
- Expulsion: The student is permanently separated from the University and may also be banned from any University-owned or -controlled property or events.
- Restitution: The student is required to make payment to the University and/or another person or entity for actual financial loss resulting from a Student Conduct Code violation.
- Withholding or Revocation of a Degree: A degree is withheld or a previously awarded degree is rescinded. This sanction may be imposed when a person who is no longer enrolled is found to have violated the Code during the time of enrollment (see Section I. A., “Definitions of Student”).
- Other Sanctions: In addition to or in place of the above, other sanctions may be imposed such as eviction from University housing, restriction or banning from certain on-campus facilities, no contact orders, community service, restriction or prohibition from attending campus events or participating in campus activities, and requirements to attend and complete classes, programs, workshops. Details of the terms of the sanction will be provided to the student in writing.
- Repeated or aggravated violations of this Code may result in more severe conduct sanctions than any individual violation might warrant.
- Potential mitigating factors include the attitude of the student, conduct history, the nature of the offense, and the severity of any damage, injury, or harm resulting from it.
- Appropriate University officials will be notified of Student Conduct Code findings and/or sanctions imposed.
- Readmission. Readmission to the University after suspension for general misconduct is dependent upon the student's compliance with the conditions of the suspension and the student's fitness to return to the campus community. These decisions are made by the Vice President of Student Affairs or their designee and may include consultation from appropriate campus officials and/or community members. In some cases, appropriate documentation may be required for readmission. Upon readmission, the student may be placed on conduct probation for a designated period of time with required conditions and expectations of behavior.
