The University reserves the right to:
- Refer any case involving a violation of criminal or civil law to the proper law enforcement agency.
- Pursue judicial action against a student on behalf of the University based on reliable information from a member of the DePaul community indicating that a violation of the Code of Student Responsibility or other DePaul policy has taken place.
- Exercise jurisdiction for an offense committed on-campus. Additionally, the University may exercise jurisdiction for an offense committed by a student off-campus (including on-line communities) when:
- the victim of such offense is a member of the campus community (student, staff, faculty); or
- the offense occurred at a college-sponsored or sanctioned event; or
- the student used his or her status as a member of the University community to assist in the commission of the offense (for example, using a student ID card to pass a bad check); or
- the offense affects the University.
(See Explanation of Important Aspects of the Judicial Review Process—Jurisdiction.)
- Suspend or otherwise sanction a student on an interim basis in accordance with the procedures described below.
- Share the outcomes of the judicial review process with those members of the University community who have a legitimate educational interest in them, or as permitted or required under FERPA, the Clery Act, or any other legal mandate.
