< All Topics

At New Jersey City University, we aim to promote civility, respect, and integrity, provide a safe environment for the university community, and address behaviors that contradict the expectations and philosophies of NJCU. Sanctions are the outcomes or consequences resulting from a violation in which a student is found responsible for violating the Code of Conduct. The purpose of sanctions is to provide students with an opportunity to learn from their experience, provide restitution (in some cases) and bring greater awareness of the impact of choices on themselves, others, and the campus community.

Sanctions can range from a warning, to mandated community service or in worst case scenarios suspension or expulsion.
