Policies & Forms

The Office of the Judicial Administrator has a number of internal policies and practices designed to make the operations of the office and the administration of the Code run smoothly.  If you seek information on a subject not covered by the policies listed below, please email judadmin@cornell.edu.

Transcript Notation Policy

Pursuant to New York State Education Law section 6444, in violent conduct matters, the following will result in a permanent transcript notation:

  • Dismissal after a finding of responsibility for a conduct violation
  • Suspension after a finding of responsibility for a conduct violation
  • Withdrawal from the institution while a conduct matter is pending

A finding of responsibility may include an admission by the accused or Respondent, an acknowledgement by the accused or Respondent of sufficient evidence to support a finding of responsibility as part of an agreement with the University, or a finding of responsibility made by an appropriate university official or officials in an administrative proceeding. These notations are permanent and may not be appealed. However, the Office of the Judicial Administrator will remove any such notation if the underlying finding of responsibility is vacated for any reason.

The Office of the Judicial Administrator will temporarily note student transcripts where students have been temporarily suspended, where students are away from the University while a conduct matter is pending, where graduation is imminent while a conduct matter is pending, once a conduct matter is charged to a hearing board or a Formal Complaint is made pursuant to Cornell University Policy 6.4, or as permitted under applicable policies or procedures. These notations may not be appealed. The Office of the Judicial Administrator will remove any such notation if the temporary suspension is vacated or otherwise upon resolution of the underlying matter.

New York State Education Law section 6444 requires transcript notations for “crimes of violence” that meet the Clery Act reporting requirements set forth at 20 U.S.C. §1092(f)(1)(F)(i)(I)-(VIII): murder, sexual offenses (forcible and non-forcible), robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, motor vehicle theft, manslaughter, and arson.

Good Samaritan Protocol

Alcohol and drug emergencies are potentially life-threatening. When an individual experiences severe intoxication or a serious injury after consuming alcohol or other drugs, it is imperative someone call for medical assistance. Cornell’s Good Samaritan Protocol has been developed to reduce barriers to individuals or groups seeking assistance.
