Retention

Judicial Affairs Disciplinary Records are retained for a period of at least 7 years and may be kept longer due to special circumstances such as suspension or expulsion or as deemed necessary by the Associate Dean for Student Conduct Administration.

Petition for Expungement

Students may submit a petition to have their disciplinary file expunged the last semester prior to graduation. The petition to expunge is a courtesy provided by Baylor University and is not a requirement of law. Baylor University has no obligation to expunge a student's disciplinary record.
