52 Nova Southeastern University Student Handbook to the Code of Student Conduct and Academic Responsibility will automatically raise the question of a more severe sanction (suspension or expulsion), if the student is found in violation. Disciplinary Warning—A disciplinary sanction serving notice to a student that the student’s behavior has not met university standards. This sanction remains in effect for a designated number of semesters of attendance. Verbal Warning—A verbal admonition to the student by a university staff member that the student’s behavior is inappropriate. Fines—Penalty fees payable to the university for violation of certain regulations within the Code of Student Conduct and Academic Responsibility.
