Coastal Alabama is committed to providing support and resources to any student who may be the recipient of violence, assault and persistent unwanted or harassing contact by another student. Any student whose presence poses a threat of danger to persons or property or a threat of disruption the academic process may be immediately removed from campus by the Dean of Student Services. In this situation, written notice of the charge of misconduct and Interim Measures will be delivered to the student by campus police and the Judicial Officer will conduct an expedited hearing. Any student who is removed from campus must contact campus police before returning to campus for preliminary hearing conference. It may become necessary for the College to formalize an arrangement between two students to no longer have contact with one another other than that which is necessary for either party to continue their academic pursuits. Such an arrangement is designed as a protective measure to help mitigate the potential for future problematic interactions between the two students.
- Interim Sanction (IS) is a directive from the Dean of Students or the SCA removing a student from campus in advance of a preliminary hearing conference.
- No Contact Agreement (NCA) is a mutual agreement between two students who voluntarily affirm that they will not have direct contact with each other, or make indirect contact through third parties, except for that which is necessary for their academic pursuits.
- No Contact Order (NCO) is a directive from the Office of Student Conduct indicating that two students may not have direct contact with each other, or make indirect contact through third parties, except for that which is necessary for their academic pursuits.
- No Contact Orders issued after a finding of responsibility are most often binding only on the responding party. However, in limited circumstances, they may be mutual.
- A No Contact Order is an official College notice from the Office of Student Conduct restricting two Coastal Alabama Community College students from initiating contact with each other.
- A No Contact Order may be issued a measure protecting the safety of the complainant or in response to a student who has been found responsible for an interpersonal violence offense and who is returning to campus following a period of suspension.
- A No Contact Order remains in place until it has been terminated, in writing, following a determination that the arrangement is no longer warranted or necessary.
