Frequently Asked Questions

I received communication from the Office of the Vice President for Student Services requesting a meeting. Do I have to go?

Students are expected to respond to all correspondence from the Student Conduct Office. When the Office of the Vice President for Student Services (VPSS) receives information regarding a potential violation of the Student Conduct & Disciplinary policy, communication is sent to the student via Vol State email or a letter to the address on file. This communication explains the student conduct process and requests a meeting to discuss the incident. If a student chooses not to participate in the investigation process, the Office of the VPSS will proceed with disposition of the case without input from the student. A restriction may placed on the student's account until the investigation is complete.

What is an advisor?

The term "advisor" is defined as a family member, staff/faculty member of College, or peer, and does not include legal counsel or attorney at law. The role of the advisor is to support to the student.
