An Incident Occurs

One or more of the following processes takes place:

  1. House Bill 1219 Process
  2. Court/Legal Process
  3. Kent State University Student Conduct Process

House Bill 1219 Process

The Kent State University Police Department decides whether or not to declare 1219.

If 1219 is not declared, the process is closed. If 1219 is declared, the Office of Student Conduct facilitates a House Bill 1219 hearing with the student, Referee and Kent State University General Counsel.

The Hearing Referee determines if the student is responsible.

If the student is not found responsible, the process is closed. If the student is found responsible, the student's enrollment at Kent State University is terminated, pending court/legal process (go to Court/Legal Process).

The Hearing Referee may choose to reinstate the student. If the Hearing Referee chooses not to reinstate the student, the student is terminated from Kent State University. If the Hearing Referee chooses to reinstate the student, the student is put on closed/strict disciplinary probation.

Court/Legal Process

It is decided if the student is found guilty of the trigger offense.

If the student is not found guilty, the House Bill 1219 hearing decision is rescinded, all House Bill 1219 files are eliminated, and the process is closed. If the student is found guilty, then the student is terminated from Kent State University.

Kent State University Student Conduct Process

It is decided if the student is found responsible for Code of Student Conduct violation(s).

If the student is not found guilty, the Student Conduct file is eliminated, and the process is closed. If the student is found guilty, educational sanctions are applied.
