Administrative Sanctions:

The purpose of Administrative sanctions is to provide a safer environment for members of the Student Organization, its guests, and the University community, while also providing an opportunity for Student Organizational leadership to create sustainable change of behaviors and activities. All administrative sanctions are paired with educational sanctions to ensure the success of students and organizations at ECU.

Administrative Sanctions may include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Disciplinary Probation
    A Student Organization may be placed on disciplinary probation for a specific period of time under conditions stated in writing. Probation includes a warning that any violation of the conditions, or any further actions of misconduct, will result in additional sanctions, which may include suspension or expulsion from the University.
  • Deferred Suspension
    Organizational suspension from East Carolina University may be deferred for a period of time, on the condition that a lesser sanction(s) be completed or is otherwise implemented within that period of time. If the lesser sanction(s) is not completed in the time period assigned, or if not upheld, the deferred suspension will automatically go into effect, and the Student Organization will have no further opportunity to appeal the deferred suspension.
  • Suspension
    Organizational suspension from East Carolina University means the Student Organization will cease all activities and disband for a period of time. Suspended organizations cannot utilize university space for gathering purposes or participate in University activities.
  • Expulsion
    Organizational expulsion from East Carolina University means the Student Organization will cease all activities and will be permanently banned from East Carolina University. Expelled organizations cannot utilize university space for gathering purposes or participate in University activities.
