One or any combination of sanctions, as appropriate:

2. Sanctions for Category 2 Violations: 

Any combination of sanctions for Category 1 Violations, including: 

Class Suspension- class suspension is defined as a temporary separation from the college, for one or more semesters. Once suspended, a student is withdrawn from course rolls. The student will not receive credit for those courses and will not be allowed to attend any College-sponsored event or activity.  

A student who completes all required sanctions will be welcomed back to the College after the suspension period. Though, sometimes the student’s return comes with one or more of the following stipulations: 

  • Not permitted to live on campus 
  • Can no longer participate in (certain activity) 
  • ​​​​​​​Subject to random drug screenings 
  • Restricted from certain campus areas or buildings 

Dismissal- A permanent separation from the College. When dismissed, a student is withdrawn from course rolls and is no longer allowed on ANY campus. Students who are dismissed from campus have a hold place on their account and cannot later enroll. 

3. Determining Sanctions:  Each student situation will be evaluated individually when considering the following mitigating and aggravating impacts:

  • The nature of the violation 
  • A student's level of involvement in the violation 
  • Actual harm caused by the behavior 
  • The potential risk of harm 
  • The student's intent 
  • ​​​​​​​The impact on the campus community 
  • The severity and pervasiveness of the behavior 
  • The student's demonstrated understanding and sincere remorse 
  • The student's level of cooperation and compliance  
  • The level of success of prior intervention
