The philosophy of Quinnipiac University in dealing with students who violate University policies is to work to solve the problem and focus on educating the students and holding them accountable. The University relies on the professional judgment of the student affairs staff to resolve these issues by assessing each student's situation and proceeding with the appropriate action.

The vice president and dean of student affairs has the authority to determine when and by what means to notify parents or guardians when students have committed serious or repeated violations of University policies and/or local and state laws and in other situations where appropriate, and in accordance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). 

Please consult the Student Handbook for further parental notification policy information.
