Duke Undergraduate Reporting Policy

The Office of Student Conduct and Community Standards (OSSCS) at Duke University will report any disciplinary action taken against a student that results in a finding of "responsible" for a Duke University policy violation and a sanction of disciplinary probation or greater.  Disciplinary records are reportable until a student graduates from Duke or eight years from the date of a student's matriculation, whichever occurs first, except for records related to suspensions and expulsions. Records related to suspensions (temporary dismissal from Duke) and expulsions (permanent dismissal from Duke) are maintained indefinitely and are also permanently noted on a student's transcript.  The entire Policy on Reporting Undergraduate Disciplinary Matters can be reviewed.
