Timelines

The length of time for conflict resolution through OSCR varies from each situation, and depends on the needs of the parties involved. 



Neglecting to participate in the Conflict Resolution Process

If you have an open file in our office and you ignore correspondence from OSCR, future employers, graduate schools, or professional organizations making an inquiry with OSCR may be informed, as allowed by the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act, that you have an open disciplinary case in our office and that you failed to complete your sanctions.



Educational Function of OSCR

OSCR’s processes are fully independent of any court-related processes or outcomes. The courts have consistently recognized the distinct differences between a university dispute resolution process and the criminal justice process.
