Other Types of Sanctions

If a student is found responsible for misconduct on or off campus, the following sanctions may be imposed singly or in combination. The sanction(s) imposed will be commensurate with the offending conduct, and may take into account the student's educational record and any previous conduct record.

Verbal Warning – A verbal reprimand which expresses university dissatisfaction with the student's conduct and which clarifies expected behavior in the future. Such a warning is noted in the student's conduct file.

Disciplinary Warning - A written reprimand which expresses university dissatisfaction with the student's conduct and which clarifies expected behavior in the future.

Disciplinary Probation - Written notification that any further violations within the probationary period shall result in more severe disciplinary action. The probationary period will be for a specific period of time and/or until the completion of any specified requirements or conditions that are part of the probation.

Disciplinary Suspension in Abeyance - The student remains enrolled. However, any violation of conduct regulations during the period of suspension in abeyance will, after determination of guilt, result in a minimum sanction of automatic suspension.

Disciplinary Suspension - A decision that removes the student from the university for a specific period of time, usually no more than two years. The suspension might be immediate or begin after the end of the semester. In either case, the student is eligible for consideration for readmission at the end of the specified period. Students that are suspended will not be eligible for a refund. This includes tuition and the cost of on-campus housing. This is more particularly described in the Administrative Policy 057.1 section 1. (B) 2.

Disciplinary Expulsion - A decision that removes the student permanently from the university. Normally, the penalty shall also include the student being barred from the premises of the university.
