Purpose Program: Release from Disciplinary Probation

In keeping with the educational philosophy of the Community Standards Office a student has the opportunity to demonstrate that, in the period following a serious violation of the Student Code of Conduct, s/he has taken steps to become a productive and engaged member of the Rowan University Community. A student who has completed a sixty day period of disciplinary probation, without any further incident/violation, may apply for release from disciplinary probation.

The application may be submitted no earlier than sixty days after the completion of the case. Note: A student is only eligible for release from disciplinary probation once. A student who is on disciplinary probation for the remainder of their academic career is not eligible.
