Disciplinary Hearings

A disciplinary hearing is the second step in the disciplinary process for cases that do not involve violations of sexual or interpersonal violence. The  sexual and interpersonal violence hearing web page can provide more information related to hearings involving allegations of sexual and interpersonal violence.

If an accused student elects to go to a hearing they may elect to have an administrative or committee hearing. The composition of each hearing is as follows:

Administrative Hearing:

An administrative hearing will be conducted by one faculty or staff member.

Committee Hearing:

The committee will consist of three (3) persons including no less than one student and one faculty/staff member.  A Procedural Officer will be present during a committee hearing.  Information about the role of the Procedural Officer can be found on the hearing procedures web page.  Please note that Committee Hearings are not available effective the Monday before the last two (2) weeks of classes or during winter and summer sessions.  During these times, the Office of Community Standards will proceed with an Administrative Hearing.

The Office of Disability Resources (ODR) coordinates academic adjustments and auxiliary aids and services for students with disabilities to ensure equal access to all programs, services, and activities at Purchase College. If you have a disability and require accommodations throughout the conduct process, please call or e-mail the ODR to initiate your request for accommodations, (914) 251-6035, odr@purchase.edu.
