Dorm Probation

Postby cubswin » Tue Jan 05, 2010 2:57 pm

Suppose you got caught drinking a couple times and were at risk of being kicked out of your dorm if it happened again. Since there was a difference between disciplinary probation through the university (more serious) and residence hall probation, does the latter count as "being put on probation by a school"?

Who were you at risk from? This matters. If it was the RHD/RD of your dorm giving you warnings, it might not be serious. If you were contacted by Residential Services at your school, it may be on their records. In any case, I suggest calling the Residential Services at your school, and asking if they kept record of your residence hall infractions. (Be anonymous, hehe.)

If your school is like my school, everything goes through the (disciplinary) Dean of Students' office, so if a law school was to audit you or ask for a certification letter, it could come up. Take that for what you will.

Also, your username is an oxymoron. If you weren't a Cubs fan you probably wouldn't have gotten caught drinking :wink: . Go Cardinals.

Call your school and ask if there is a disciplinary record of your actions. If not, problem solved. Some schools erase their records after you graduate unless it was a serious infraction (like something that led to suspension, etc). I think you'll be fine, but you should call and then decide what to do.

Thanks everybody for the replies. I contacted my school and there is no record of anything I did in the dorms.
