Interim Suspension

The chief student affairs officer, or designee, may suspend a student from the University for an interim period pending disciplinary or criminal proceedings, or medical evaluation. The interim suspension shall become immediately effective without prior notice whenever there is evidence that in the opinion of the chief student affairs officer the continued presence of the student at the University poses a substantial and immediate threat to him/herself or to others, or to the stability and continuance of normal University functions.

           A student suspended on an interim basis shall be given a prompt opportunity to appear personally before the chief student affairs officer or a designee in order to discuss the following issues only:

  1. the reliability of the information concerning the student's conduct, including the matter of his or her identity;

  2. whether the conduct and surrounding circumstances reasonably indicate that the continued presence of the student on University premises poses a substantial and immediate threat to him/herself or to others or the stability and continuance of normal University functions.

           The suspended student shall be able to appeal the decision to the president, or the designee. The decision of the president, or designee, shall be final.

           The chief student affairs officer and/or president, or designees, may impose conditions to re-admittance to the University as the conditions warrant.
