Disciplinary Sanctions

The following sanctions may be imposed upon any student found in violation of College policies:

1.    Warning: This sanction will be used in cases in which the College determines that  the appropriate lesson has been learned and conclude the matter with a formal letter of warning.

2.    Disciplinary Probation: A written notification for violation of specified regulations. Probation is designated for a specified period of time and includes the probability of more severe disciplinary sanctions, including suspension or expulsion, if the student is found to violate any institutional regulation(s) during the probationary period. Students can be placed on disciplinary or housing probation.

Students on disciplinary probations are considered not in good social standing with the College. Good Standing may be required for participation in certain campus activities. In addition, students not in good standing may have their conduct reviewed for leadership or employment positions on campus.
