Disciplinary Records Check Request
When filling out the Disciplinary Records Check Request Form, you will be asked to indicate how you would like the form returned. Provide either a fax number for the requesting institution or email address.
A disciplinary reference request only provides information from the Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities. If necessary, you will have to contact the Office of the Registrar separately for records regarding your academic standing.
Academic institutions and employers can also request a student/alumni’s disciplinary record directly by filling out the Disciplinary Records Check Request Form.
Please note that you will need to provide a signed release from the student/alumni for this information to be provided.
A disciplinary records check can take up to 7 days, so be mindful of your application deadline.
Maintenance of Records
Records regarding student code of conduct violations will be maintained for a period of eight years. If you were suspended or expelled due to a code of conduct violation, your records will be kept permanently.
Records pertaining to Academic Integrity violations by graduate students will be retained by our office for eight years from time of incident. Records pertaining to Academic Integrity violations by undergraduate students will be retained by our office for eight years from time of the academic year of the offense.

If you would like to complete a Disciplinary Records Check, you will need to review and complete the Disciplinary Records Check Request Form.
