Chapter Conduct Status
Disciplinary Probation is a serious restriction on the fraternity/sorority's good standing with the University. Disciplinary Probation can last anywhere from one semester to two years. Any subsequent violations during the probationary period will be viewed as both a violation of University regulations and a violation of the probation, and may result in additional and more severe sanctions. A fraternity/sorority on Disciplinary Probation will be required to fulfill specific conditions and/or refrain from certain actions or activities. At the end of the disciplinary probation period, all lost privileges shall be restored.
While on Disciplinary Probation the chapter will forfeit their right to vote in their respective governing council on any business but are still expected to attend. Further, any member of the chapter will be unable to hold any leadership role/position within the Greek community, whether elected or appointed, including, but not limited to, the Interfraternity Council, the Panhellenic Council, Order of Omega, GAMMA, Greek Conduct Board, Greek Mission Trip, and Greek Week. No more than three (3) Disciplinary Probation sanctions may be imposed on a fraternity/sorority within a five (5) year period. A fourth violation during this five year period will automatically result in either a suspension or termination, though the fraternity/sorority may be suspended or terminated prior to this condition. The University may impose other stipulations on the fraternity/sorority during the Disciplinary Probation period.

Suspension is defined as a separation from the University for a specified period of not less than one calendar year. Depending on the violation, it may be recommend for the organization to be removed for one college generation (4 years) to allow all current members to graduate prior to the organization returning to campus. During a suspension, the fraternity/sorority may not participate in any University-related activities, including, but not limited to: chapter meetings, recruitment, new member education, initiation, social functions, and service and philanthropic activities. At the end of the suspension period, the fraternity/sorority may be again recognized only upon the recommendation of the Student Involvement Center. At the time the chapter is placed on suspension members of the fraternity/sorority may not reside in DeMattias Hall, nor may the chapter use or reserve a chapter room in DeMattias Hall. Additionally, any room reservations on campus they have scheduled are cancelled, and they are restricted from functioning as a fraternity/sorority under the present name without the authorization of the Student Involvement Center.
After the suspension period has concluded, the chapter may be placed on a form of probation, substance restriction, or both. Further, once the chapter is off suspension, they may be required to complete other various educational or disciplinary sanctions.

Substance Restriction Status
Substance Restriction allows the chapter to have only substance free (alcohol-free and drug-free) events (including member education events, switches, formals, date parties, philanthropy, etc.) through the date specified. All events must be pre-approved by the Student Involvement Center no later than 2 weeks prior to the date of the event. Any events in which alcohol is not necessarily provided, but may be present, are also prohibited. The Student Involvement Center reserves the right to deny any event that in some way may not be in accordance with substance restriction status. The chapter is certainly encouraged to have as many substance free events as they would like; this is in no way meant to limit their members' social experience.
*For the purposes of a holistic and educational approach to disciplinary sanctioning, the University may combine any and all of these disciplinary statuses (aside from Termination) as well as change them at any time.
