Disciplinary sanctions and conditions.

(1) Disciplinary sanctions. The following disciplinary sanctions may be imposed upon students found to have violated the student conduct code:
(a) Disciplinary warning. An oral statement to a student that there is a violation and that any further violation may be cause for further disciplinary action. Although verbal, the student conduct officer should make a record of the warning. The respondent cannot appeal a disciplinary warning.
(b) Written disciplinary reprimand. A written notice informing a student that he/she has violated one or more terms of the code of conduct and that future misconduct involving the same or similar behavior may result in the imposition of a more severe disciplinary sanction.
(c) Disciplinary probation. A written notice placing specific term(s) and condition(s) upon the student's continued attendance at the college. Disciplinary probation may be for a limited period of time or for the duration of the student's attendance at the college.
(d) Disciplinary suspension. Temporary revocation of enrollment and termination of student status, for a stated period of time. The student may be prohibited from coming onto any college facility and may be subject to law enforcement action for criminal trespass for violating that prohibition. There will be no refund of tuition or fees for the quarter in which the action is taken.
(e) Dismissal. Revocation of enrollment and of all rights and privileges of membership in the college community, and exclusion from college facilities, without any time limitation. There will be no refund of tuition or fees for the quarter in which the action is taken. The student may be subject to law enforcement action for criminal trespass for violating that exclusion. A dismissal may be rescinded only by a written decision of the president, for documented good cause.
(2) Disciplinary conditions. Disciplinary conditions that may be imposed alone or in conjunction with the imposition of a disciplinary sanction under subsection (1) of this section include:
(a) Restitution. Reimbursement for (i) damage to, or theft or misuse of, real or personal property or money, or (ii) injury to persons. This reimbursement may take the form of money, appropriate service, or other compensation.
(b) Professional evaluation. Referral for drug, alcohol, psychological, or medical evaluation, at the student's expense, by an appropriately certified or licensed professional. The student may choose the professional within the scope of practice and with the professional credentials as specified by the college. The student must 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 the evaluation. If the student has been suspended, the student may remain suspended until the most recent evaluation finds that the student is capable of reentering the college and complying with the college's expectations for conduct.

(i) Ineligible to hold any college office or position or any office in any student organization;
