Can I get the result of a university disciplinary hearing expunged?

 

The answer to the question depends. It's going to depend on the particular college or university involved and also the particular case. Some schools have specific policies that say records are maintained per their policies and a student can not make such a request. Other schools have policies that after a certain period of time passes, a student could petition the appropriate office at the school to request that records be vacated or expunged. Other schools are more vague where this step would have to be taken to see if that would be an option. Exceptions can at times be made, depending on the circumstances. An expulsion, for example, that would never go away almost universally, just because a university is looking out for its liabilities in maintaining such a record. As to other forms of discipline or findings or sanctions, it can vary. It would vary on the school and the case. An experienced attorney advisor can help you understand what possible options there may be in getting a university record vacated or expunged.
