Student Records Expungement

Marymount University maintains a student disciplinary record and related supporting documentation for seven (7) years after graduation or withdrawal from the University, former students may request that the University expunge disciplinary records before this period. The University’s expungement policy reflects the philosophy that students can and do learn from their interactions with the conduct processes and that self-reflection and self-knowledge can change individuals.

Students may apply to have their disciplinary record expunged if they meet the following criteria:

  1. The case did not involve academic dishonesty;
  2. The case did not involve violence, the threat of violence, sexual and interpersonal misconduct, or any form of harassment; and
  3. The highest status sanction imposed was disciplinary probation or housing probation.

Once seven (7) years have passed, a student may complete a “Request to Expunge Disciplinary Record” requesting the expungement of records that meet the above criteria. The Chief Conduct Officer will review each application and determine if expungement is warranted based on the applicant’s contributions to the community, their academic record, and their continued lack of disciplinary records. The applicant will be notified of the outcome of their application in writing within ten (10) calendar days. If an expungement is granted, the record will be maintained for the mandatory seven (7) years but not reported as a disciplinary violation.

If after a record is expunged and the student is found responsible for another violation of the Student Conduct Code then the expunged record will become active again. A letter will be sent to all institutions that requested records during the time that the record was expunged indicating the change in status.
