This policy item applies to:
[Note: This Policy takes effect on July 1, 2017, and supersedes Policy Doc. No. 3300 Admission of Persons with Prior Felony Convictions or Disciplinary Dismissals].
The State University of New York (University) policy requires applicants for admission as undergraduates and graduate students to report whether they have been dismissed from an institution of higher education for disciplinary reasons. Applications from such candidates must be reviewed by a campus committee.
The University-wide application for undergraduate admission to campuses of the University contains a question regarding whether the applicant previously has been dismissed from an institution of higher education for disciplinary reasons. It is the policy of the University that such a question be included in applications for both undergraduate and graduate admissions, full-time and part-time, by campuses processing local applications or not participating in the Application Service Center (ASC).
Campus Admission Review
Campuses must utilize a standing committee to review applicants who affirm that they have been dismissed from a college for disciplinary reasons.
The purpose of the campus committee is to review appropriate information and decide whether an applicant with a disciplinary dismissal from an institution of higher education should be admitted. If admitted, the conditions of admissibility must also be decided; for example, eligibility for on-campus housing and counseling services. The committee may request the applicant to provide the following:
After review of all available information, the committee must decide whether to deny admission, admit the applicant, or admit the applicant with certain conditions.
Dismissal from a college for disciplinary reasons – Permanent separation from an institution of higher education on the basis of conduct or behavior.
Suspension – A sanction imposed for disciplinary reasons that results in a student leaving school for a fixed time period, less than permanently.
