What if the student chooses to participate in the process; is he or she granted any immunity in the criminal process?
No. All student conduct matters are subject to lawful subpoena. This includes tape recordings, written statements and records, and personal recollections. In fact, the University may have to contact the appropriate law enforcement agency if violations of the law become evident through the student conduct process.
