Characteristics of Students Who Reenroll after Serving a Disciplinary Suspension

Matthew T. Stimpson and Steven M. Janosik

The purpose of this study was to examine if students who reenroll following a disciplinary suspension had significant common characteristics. Gender, GPA at time of suspension, class status at time of suspension, type of violation(s) that resulted in suspension, number of disciplinary incidents prior to suspension, and length of suspension were the characteristics we examined. Results indicate that students who reenroll are more likely to be male, have a higher GPA than those who do not reenroll, and not be charged with minor conduct violations. Results also indicate that men are three times more likely to reenroll than women.
