(1) Appropriate action taken shall be based on the facts of the investigation, and such action shall be consistent with policy and practice. The standard to determine a sanction is based upon a preponderance or clear and convincing determination that a violation occurred. The following sanctions may be imposed by the judicial advisor upon any student, group, or organization found to have violated the code of conduct by the judicial advisor or judicial body at any time during the informal process or formal hearings:
(a) Warning -- A notice in writing to the student that the student has violated this code and that further violation may result in additional disciplinary proceedings and sanctions.
(b) Probation -- A written reprimand placing conditions upon the student's continued attendance. Probation is for a designated period of time and includes the probability of more severe disciplinary sanctions if the student is found to be in further violation of the code of conduct. Notice shall be made in writing and shall specify the period of probation and the conditions, such as limiting the student's participating in extracurricular activities.
(c) Loss of privileges -- Denial of specified privileges for a designated period of time.
(d) Fines -- Fines may be imposed.
(e) Restitution -- Compensation for loss, damage, or injury. This may take the form of appropriate service and/or monetary or material replacement.
(f) Discretionary sanctions -- Work assignments, service to the college, or other related discretionary assignments.
(g) Deactivation -- (Applies to student groups or organization.) Loss of all privileges including college recognition, for a specified period of time.
(h) No contact orders -- An order of no contact may be placed on a student, complainant, or any involved parties if determined to be in the best interest of the college and/or student(s).
(i) College suspension -- Separation of the student from the college for a definite period of time, after which the student is eligible to return. Conditions for readmission may be specified.
(j) College expulsion -- Permanent separation of the student from the college. There shall be no refund of fees for the quarter in which the action is taken, but fees paid in advance for a subsequent quarter shall be refunded.
(2) More than one of the sanctions listed above may be imposed for any single violation.
(3) Disciplinary sanctions shall not be made part of the student's permanent academic record, but shall become part of the student's confidential record. Upon graduation and application to the judicial advisor, the student's confidential record may be expunged of disciplinary actions other than
college suspension or expulsion, consistent with the college's schedule of record disposition.
