Information for Students

When students find themselves heading to a conduct meeting, two of the first questions are “what’s going to happen to me” and “what outcomes will I have to face.”

The quick answer is that it depends. At Rider University, we take multiple factors into account when assigning outcomes to conduct cases. Some of the questions we ask ourselves are: is this a first offense? How often is this behavior exhibited? What is the risk that the student is placing himself or herself in?
