Generally administrative review is reserved situations where the immediate health and safety of students may be of added concern. Fresno Pacific University, may also, at its discretion, allow students to request an administrative hearing rather than one of the other options available within the disciplinary process. Administrative hearings are generally conducted by the Dean of Student Life and/or their designee.

Upon completion of an administrative review, the student(s) involved will be notified in writing as to any formal allegation(s), the determination of said student(s) involvement, any violations of University Standards, and the Administrative Review’s results. Results of Administrative Reviews may come from the entire range of options noted in the section “Restorative Discipline Plans.”
