If a hearing is to be held, written notification will be provided to the respondent, and in charges involving sexual misconduct to the complainant. The notice may be hand delivered, placed into a student’s residence hall mailbox, sent by email to the student’s official university email address, which may direct the student to view the notice on a secure website, or mailed to the last known address of the student, by first class mail, no fewer than ten calendar days prior to the hearing. Unless already provided to the student, the notification will include the charge(s), date, time, and location of the hearing, the designated hearing body, a statement of the student’s rights, and information on the hearing procedures.
The respondent and the complainant may request a postponement for reasonable cause or a separate hearing from other respondents. A request for a postponement for reasonable cause must be made in writing, include supporting rationale and be received by the person sending the hearing notification at least two business days before the scheduled hearing.
