Student Conduct Hearings

A student conduct hearing is an administrative procedure.  Most often a student conduct hearing is held as part of the appeal process but could also be held to review a summary suspension.

A hearing gives all parties the opportunity to present and respond to evidence and arguments.  Parties may conduct cross-examinations and submit rebuttal evidence.  The Student Conduct Code (WAC 132H-126) and RCW 34.05 Administrative Procedure Act define the processes, but may not help a student to know what to expect. Here are some things to know and consider when preparing for a student conduct hearing.
