It is the policy of WPI that judicial records shall be kept by the Dean of Students Office for a period of two years from the date of graduation or withdrawal from WPI, except when the sanction includes suspension or expulsion. In cases involving suspension or expulsion from WPI, disciplinary records shall be kept in perpetuity. Records for cases that are pending completion of the hearing and/or sanction shall be kept in perpetuity. Records will be available to prospective employers and other authorized individuals in accordance with federal regulations that require written permission from the student involved. Judicial records are kept separate from a student's academic records. In keeping with the WPI Academic Honesty Policy and the Constitution of the WPI Campus Judicial System, a student's judicial record may be shared internally as appropriate to determine if a past record exists.
