2024 - 2025 Student Handbook

Conduct System

Lasell University Conduct System addresses alleged student violations of the non-academic policies and procedures detailed in the Student Handbook.

The University will not protect students who violate local, state or federal laws from prosecution by the appropriate law enforcement agencies. The University may choose to proceed with its conduct review process regardless of any off-campus legal actions that are in progress, and whether or not the alleged offender chooses to take part in the campus conduct hearing.

The University reserves the right to take immediate action prior to the convening of a conduct hearing under the following circumstances: a) to ensure the safety and well-being of members of the University community or preservation of University property; b) to ensure the student's own physical or emotional safety and well-being; c) if the student poses a definite threat of disruption of or interference with the normal operations of the University; d) if it is alleged that the student has engaged in a serious violation of University policy and/or local, state or federal laws. Such interim action shall remain in effect until the hearing process has been completed. The requisite notice and hearing process shall follow as soon as it is possible.
