This formal written notice indicates that the organization is not in good standing with the University and its actions will be monitored during the specified period.
  • Conduct Probation with Conditions: A Probation with Conditions stipulates the period of  probation that includes specific restrictions or requirements to be met during the probationary period. The organization will receive a formal written notice stating they are not in good standing with the University and have lost certain privileges for a period of no less than one semester.

The conditional suspension shall continue until the term is complete and all conditions have been met. During the Conditional Suspension period the organization will work closely with their governing department to complete a reflection and  development  assessment  to  ready  them for reintegration into the campus community.
