Petitioning for Early Transcript Notation Removal*

If you are placed on Conduct Probation by a university disciplinary officer or committee, this fact is noted on your academic transcript during the probationary period. Per Section 4.02(a) of the Student Disciplinary Procedures (link), you may petition to have this notation removed early, but only if:

  1. You have completed all educational sanctions assigned to you;
  2. You have not been found responsible for any subsequent violations of the Student Code; and
  3. You have completed at least half of the probationary period.

To petition for early notation removal, you must:

  1. Write a letter, addressed to Associate Dean of Students Justin Brown, in which you (at a minimum) provide the following:
    1. A description of the incident that led to your Conduct Probation sanction;
    2. A description of all other sanctions you were required to complete and what exactly you did to complete them;
    3. A description of any relevant changes you have made since the incident occurred;
    4. Your reasons for requesting that the notation be removed early;
    5. Your anticipated graduation date; and
    6. Your plans following graduation.
  2. Email this letter to or to
  3. Wait five to seven business days for a decision or a request for an in-person meeting.

Please understand that a successful petition only removes the notation from your transcript. You will remain on Conduct Probation until the date specified in your original sanction letter, and the Office for Student Conflict Resolution will maintain your disciplinary record for at least seven years from the date you were sanctioned.

* If you are currently dismissed from the university, have a notation on your transcript, but do not intend to return to the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, these instructions do not apply. You must instead submit a petition for readmission.
