Disciplinary Sanctions

    1. Upon a determination that a student or organization has violated any of the rules, regulations, or disciplinary offenses set forth in the regulations, the following disciplinary sanctions may be imposed, either singly or in combination, by the appropriate college officials.
    2. Definition of Sanctions
      1. Restitution. A student who has committed an offense against property may be required to reimburse the college or other owner for damage to or misappropriation of such property. Any such payment in restitution shall be limited to actual cost of repair or replacement.
      2. Warning. The appropriate college official may notify the student that continuation or repetition of specified conduct may be cause for other disciplinary action.
      3. Reprimand. A written reprimand, or censure, may be given any student or organization whose conduct violates any part of these regulations. Such a reprimand does not restrict the student in anyway, but does have important consequence. It signifies that the student is being given another chance to conduct himself or herself as a proper member of the college community, but that any further violation may result in more serious penalties.
      4. Restriction. A restriction upon a student's or organization's privileges for a period of time may be imposed. This restriction may include, for example, denial of the right to represent the college in any way, denial of use of facilities, parking privileges, participation in extracurricular activities or restriction of organizational privileges.
      5. Probation. Continued enrollment of a student on probation may be conditioned upon adherence to these regulations. Any student placed on probation will be notified of such in writing and will also be notified of the terms and length of the probation. Probation may include restrictions upon the extracurricular activities of a student. Any conduct in violation of these regulations while on probationary status may result in the imposition of a more serious disciplinary sanction.
      6. Suspension. A suspended student is separated from the college for a period of time with conditions of readmission stated in the notice of suspension.
      7. Expulsion. Expulsion entails a permanent separation from the college. The imposition of this sanction is a permanent bar to the student's readmission to the college.
      8. Interim or summary suspension. Though as a general rule the status of a student accused of violations of these regulations should not be altered until a final determination has been made in regard to the charges against him or her, summary suspension may be imposed upon a finding by the appropriate college official that the continued presence of the accused on campus constitutes an immediate threat to the physical safety and well-being of the accused, or of any other member of the college community or its guests, destruction of property, or substantial disruption of classroom or other campus activities. In any case of immediate suspension, the student shall be given an opportunity at the time of the decision or immediately thereafter to contest the suspension, and if there are disputed issues of fact or cause and effect, the student shall be provided a hearing on the suspension as soon as possible.
      9. Mandatory participation in and satisfactory completion of a drug or alcohol abuse program, or rehabilitation program.
       
    3. The President of the college is authorized to convert any sanction imposed to a lesser sanction or to rescind any previous sanction.
