Sanction Resources for Students

  • I have a hold on MyKU. What can I do about it?

    In some instances, a student's MyKU account may be restricted because of an incomplete or overdue student conduct sanction. Also, some students who left the university for a semester or two without resolving a pending case may also have their account restricted. Student MyKU accounts are restricted until a student addresses the pending student conduct issue.  

    A student may keep their MyKU account restricted until they complete the sanction or submit a request to have their account temporarily unrestricted for a period of time not greater than two weeks. This gives the student an opportunity to finish their sanction and to conduct urgent university business such as registering for classes or requesting transcripts. This request must be approved by the Student Conduct Office and students may only use this request once. Students who agree to the terms of this request but do not complete their sanction may face additional conduct charges for failing to comply. To submit a request, follow the instructions and submit the form below:

  • Sanction Policy Statement: Alcohol Violations

    A student found to be in violation of the Student Code of Conduct will be sanctioned in accordance with the procedures and standards outlined in the Document on Student Rights and Welfare. Typically, a first offense violation of the alcohol policy will result in a student receiving a sanction ranging from a disciplinary reprimand to disciplinary probation. In addition, the student may be required to complete an alcohol and other drug education program. A program of progressive discipline is employed for second or subsequent offenses and sanctions may include extended disciplinary probation, loss of university housing and/or participation in an alcohol and other drug evaluation. Sanctions for a student on disciplinary probation when a second offense occurs may include housing suspension, deferred university suspension or university suspension for a minimum of one semester.
