When a violation leads to a concern about the safety of a student or members of the College community, a Threat Assessment Team will review and make recommendations to the Vice President for Student Services or designee prior to a hearing. If a student engages in criminal activity or demonstrates threatening behavior that constitutes a clear and present danger to the physical and/or emotional well-being of the student and/or other students, faculty and staff, the Vice President for Student Services or designee may immediately suspend the student and remove him or her from campus for no more than 14 College business days from the date the suspension is instituted, pending a hearing. In this situation, the Vice President for Student Services or designee must convene a Threat Assessment Team.
For violations that do not require the implementation of the Threat Assessment Policy, the Vice President for Student Services will review initial disciplinary referrals and may suspend a student for up to ten College business days while the review is conducted. Students are allowed to appeal any disciplinary action unless they have waived this right, and will be informed of their rights of due process.
