Disciplinary Probation and Dismissal Policy

The Art of Education University is committed to academic success and a positive experience for all students. For this reason, AOEU reserves the right to dismiss students from courses or terminate students’ enrollment for Academic Integrity Policy or Student Code of Conduct violations according to the guidelines for disciplinary action (above) and the terms in the Disciplinary Probation and Dismissal Policy. Students dismissed from AOEU are ineligible for future enrollment.

Suspension and Dismissal for Academic Integrity Policy Violations

Students who violate the Academic Integrity Policy during a second course will be placed on probation, and remain on probation for the duration of the program. Students with a probation record will not be eligible for nomination to Delta Epsilon Tau International Honor Society.

The Chief Academic Officer (CAO) reviews all cases of students placed on Disciplinary Probation. The CAO will develop a required disciplinary plan for the student to complete or dismiss the student from the program, depending on the severity of the violation.

Students dismissed based on violations of Disciplinary Probation are entitled to a refund according to the Add/Drop, Withdrawal, and Tuition Reimbursement Policy.

Suspension and Dismissal for Student Code of Conduct Policy Violations

AOEU follows the Student Code of Conduct Policy to determine the dismissal of students for non-academic reasons. Students dismissed based on violations of the Code of Conduct Policy will be eligible for a refund according to the Add/Drop, Withdrawal, and Tuition Reimbursement Policy. Current courses will show an earned grade of W if the student is removed after the seventh day of the course. 

It is the student’s responsibility to understand and uphold AOEU policies. 

Students who violate the Student Code of Conduct Policy are immediately suspended from current courses until an investigation is complete. If, after providing documentation, the student is not found in violation of the Student Code of Conduct Policy, they will be granted a course extension equal to the time of the original suspension and investigation.

If a student is found in violation of the Student Code of Conduct Policy, they will receive written communication to the email address on file informing them of their violation and dismissal from the program. 

Student Appeal Process

All university decisions regarding student grades or enrollment status changes as a result of policy violations will be communicated to students via the student’s email address on file. 

Students have five calendar days from the send date to respond with requests to appeal dismissal decisions by submitting a grievance. Students submitting a grievance should also submit further documentation or explanation on their behalf. The Chief Academic Officer will review all evidence provided by the student as well as the documentation from faculty and staff associated with the case and make a final decision. All grievance decisions are final and will be communicated to the student within ten days via the email address on file.

Additional policy information may be found in the current edition of the Graduate Catalog.
