Universities and Colleges hold a lot of power over your future. Under their Student Codes of Conduct, universities regulate and control the behavior of their students to protect their reputation and help student's successfully obtain their education. When there is an allegation of a Title IX violation, or students are alleged to violate the Student Conduct Code, they are subject to a hearing process and potential punishment by the school.  

Title IX investigations involve anything that prevents someone from getting a full education based upon their gender.  The most common example is for sport teams, schools have to have an equal number of scholarships.  However, we also see these cases when someone alleges they cannot attend school because of being stalked after a bad break up, or something along those lines.

Although conduct violations often result from arrests and criminal charges, you may also face punishment for non-criminal behaviors like misconduct at university activities, disruptive behavior, alcohol or student residence violations.

Title IX investigations by themselves do not carry the traditional consequences for the student.  These investigations are for the school (UCF, Rollins, etc.) to look into a matter to limit the school's liability, however, often these investigations lead to a Golden Rule Violation or an Academic Honor Code Hearing because during the investigation the school learns more evidence about the matter and refers the case on. Often times this is because the student will admit to something during the interview that will open them up to academic punishment.

Violations of the student code of conduct can result in a wide spectrum of consequences, varying from warnings to expulsion from school. Although expulsion is usually reserved for the most serious or repeated violations, other punishments may seriously endanger your ability to complete school and apply for future job opportunities. Code of conduct hearing officers have the power to revoke your campus housing, scholarships, university employment, and involvement in school activities, as well as place you on probation and subject you to further monitoring by the conduct office. Additionally, your disciplinary record may affect your applications for graduate programs, transferring education and professional licensing.
