Students are responsible for knowing the following:
18. Sanctions that may be imposed in accordance with this Code include:
a. Warning: Notice, in writing, that continuation or repetition of prohibited conduct may be cause for additional disciplinary action.
b. Censure: A written reprimand for violating the Code of Student Conduct or other College policy. This conduct status specifies a period of time during which the student's or organization's good standing with the College may be in jeopardy. The student is officially warned that continuation or repetition of prohibited conduct may be cause for additional conduct action including probation, suspension, or expulsion from the College.
c. Disciplinary Probation: Exclusion from participation in privileged activities for a specified period of time. Privileged activities may include, but are not limited to, elected or appointed ASOC officers, student research, student preceptorship, some student employment, study abroad, and College athletics. Additional restrictions or conditions may also be imposed. Violations of the terms of disciplinary probation or any other College policy violations may result in further disciplinary action.
d. Restitution: Repayment to the College or to an affected party for damages resulting from a violation of this Code. To enforce this sanction, the College reserves the right to withhold transcripts and degrees or to deny a student participation in graduation ceremonies and privileged events.
e. Removal from Campus Housing: Students may be removed from College housing and/or barred from applying for campus housing due to disciplinary violations of this Code.
f. Suspension: Exclusion from College premises, attending classes, and other privileges or activities for a specified period of time, as set forth in the suspension notice. Notice of this action will be recorded in the student's conduct file. Conditions for readmission may be specified in the suspension notice. The Refunds and Withdrawals policy applies to students on suspension.
g. Expulsion: Permanent termination of student status and exclusion from College premises, privileges, and activities. This action will be permanently recorded on the student's academic transcript. The Refund and Withdrawals policy applies to students who are expelled.
h. Revocation of Admission and/or Degree: Admission to or a degree awarded by the College may be revoked for fraud, misrepresentation in obtaining the degree or violation of College policies, the Code or for other serious violations committed by a student prior to enrollment or graduation.
i. Withholding Degree: The College may withhold awarding a degree otherwise earned until the completion of the process set forth in this Code, including the completion of all sanctions imposed, if any.
j. Other educational sanctions may be imposed instead of or in addition to those specified in sections (a) through (i) of this section.
k. More than one of the sanctions listed above may be imposed for any single violation.
l. Significant mitigating factors shall be considered when sanctions are imposed, including the present demeanor and past conduct record of the student as well as the nature of the offense and the severity of any damage, injury or harm resulting from it.
m. In determining appropriate sanctions, the Office of Student Conduct may consult with appropriate officials on-campus (e.g. Athletic Director, Department Chair, etc.).
n. At the discretion of the Office of Student Conduct, sanctions may be deferred to both encourage and provide an incentive for improved behavior by students who are found responsible for violating the Code. If a sanction is deferred, then it will only be imposed if the responsible student subsequently violates the Code during the period of deferral.
o. See Part 23 in this Code for more information about conduct files and records.
