The following sanctions may be imposed upon any student found to have violated the student code of conduct:
(1) Warning. A verbal statement or notice in writing to the respondent that they are violating or have violated college rules or regulations and that continued violations may be the cause for further disciplinary action.
(2) Reprimand. Notice in writing that the respondent has violated one or more of the policies outlined in the student code of conduct and that continuation of the same or similar behavior may result in more severe disciplinary action.
(3) Loss of privileges. Denial of specified privileges for a designated period of time.
(4) Restitution. An individual student may be required to make restitution for damage, loss, or injury. This may take the form of appropriate service and/or monetary or material replacement. Failure to make restitution within thirty days or any period set by the SCO, SCB, SAB, or president will result in suspension for an indefinite period of time as set forth in subsection (7) of this section, provided that a student may be reinstated upon payment or upon a written agreed plan of repayment. Failure to strictly comply with the terms of a repayment plan will result in immediate suspension.
(5) Discretionary sanctions. Work assignments, essays, service to the college, or other related discretionary assignments.
(6) Disciplinary probation. Formal action placing conditions upon the student's continued attendance for violations of college rules or regulations or other failure to meet the college's expectations within the student code of conduct. Written notice of disciplinary probation will specify the period of probation and any condition(s) upon which his/her continued enrollment is contingent. Such conditions may include, but not be limited to, adherence to terms of a behavior contract or limiting the student's participation in extra-curricular activities or access to specific areas of the college's facilities. Disciplinary probation may be for a specified term or for an indefinite period which may extend to graduation or other termination of the student's enrollment in the college.
(7) Suspension. Separation of the student from the college for a definite period of time, after which the student is eligible to return. Students who are suspended may be denied access to all or any part of the campus or other facilities during the duration of the period of suspension. Additionally, conditions for readmission may be specified.
(8) Expulsion. Permanent separation of the student from the college. Students who are expelled may be denied access to all or any part of the campus or other facilities permanently.
(9) Revocation of admission and/or degree. Admission to or a degree awarded from the college may be revoked for fraud, misrepresentation, or other violation of college standards in obtaining admission or the degree, or for other serious violations committed by a student prior to graduation. Revocation of a degree must be approved by the board of trustees.
(10) Withholding degree. The college may withhold awarding a degree otherwise earned until the completion of the process set forth in the student code of conduct, including the completion of all sanctions imposed, if any. Withholding a degree must be approved by the board of trustees.
(11) Professional evaluation. Referral for drug, alcohol, psychological or medical evaluation by an appropriately certified or licensed professional may be required. The student may choose the professional within the scope of practice and with the professional credentials as defined by the college. The student will sign all necessary releases to allow the college access to any such evaluation. The student's return to college may be conditioned upon compliance with recommendations set forth in such a professional evaluation. If the evaluation indicates that the student is not capable of functioning within the college community, the student will remain suspended until future evaluation recommends that the student is capable of reentering the college and complying with the student code of conduct.
(12) Delayed suspension. A probationary amount of time set by the SCO, SCB, SAB, or president in which the student must remain on good terms with the student code of conduct. If the student is found responsible for violating the student code of conduct while still under the delayed suspension guidelines, then the student will be suspended, as set forth in subsection (7) of this section, for their next violation of the student code of conduct.
