While a Responding Party’s conduct record is retained for seven (7) years from the date of resolution, no earlier than two (2) calendar years after completion of all sanctions associated with a case, an individual may request in writing that their conduct record related to a Minor Violation of the Code be expunged early.

A Minor Violation is a violation that has had some impact on an individual or community but is unintentional and non-malicious. Factors that may be used in determining a Minor Violation include, but are not limited to, the nature of the incident and the facts and circumstances related to the case; the severity of any damage, injury, or harm resulting from the violation; the level of disruption to normal University operations and activities; or whether the violation was motivated by bias based upon race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, age, national origin, disability unrelated to program performance, veteran status, or genetic or family medical history.

Expungement decisions shall be made at the sole discretion of the Director of Community Standards & Student Accountability or designee.

An expunged record will not be disclosed except as required by law and will be considered internal to the University. Reports or other correspondences maintained by other University departments, UAB Police or other designated security or law enforcement, or another reporting agency are not subject to the expungement provision. Additionally, previous conduct record checks reported by Community Standards & Student Accountability or another University department will not be affected by the expungement provision.
