Office of Student Conduct

I’m on probation. Now what?

Disciplinary probation is:

  • For a specified period of time; and

  • Serves as a warning to a student that future violations could result in suspension or expulsion from the University.

Probation is an educational time for students to reflect on why they are attending WSU, and hopefully avoid future misconduct. Generally, probation is sanctioned to students with multiple or egregious violations of the Standards of Conduct, or when the conduct officer has a concern for the particular student’s behavior.

A student on probation is also unable to:

  • Run for or hold office in any RSO;

  • Serve as a resident advisor or orientation counselor; and

  • Serve on the University’s conduct or appeals boards.

The conduct officer may impose additional probationary conditions, if appropriate.

While on probation, it is important that you abide by the Standards of Conduct, including any federal, state, or local laws.
