17. Sanctions that may be imposed in accordance with this Code include:
- Warning: Notice, in writing, that continuation or repetition of prohibited conduct may be cause for additional disciplinary action.
- Censure: A written reprimand for violating the Code of Student Conduct or other College policy.

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.

- 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.

- More than one of the sanctions listed above may be imposed for any single violation.
