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 in order to limit the school’s liability.
However, often these investigations can lead to a Golden Rule Violation or an Academic Honor Code Hearing. During the investigation, the school learns more about the matter and can refer the case to the department of the school that handles the academic punishments.
Violations of the student code of conduct can result in a wide spectrum of consequences. From mere warnings to actual expulsion from school. While 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. They can also 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.
