Possible Sanctions

Disclaimer: All decisions of responsibility and sanctions are made at the discretion of the Conduct Officer, specific requirements of some sanctions may be subject to change from situation to situation.

Written Warning

A written notice of a code violation. If the violation is repeated in the future, this will typically result in more severe sanctions.

Alcohol, Tobacco, and Other Drugs Programming, Evaluation, and/or Testing

A student may be required to participate in alcohol and/or other drug programming as a result of participating in any incident involving the use or abuse of alcohol and/or other drugs.

Educational Writing Assignment

Based on the situation, your Conduct Officer may choose a topic that they feel it would be beneficial for the student to reflect on, and require that the student to complete a writing assignment based on that topic. All criteria set by the Conduct Officer (subject, topics, font, word count, page count, formatting) must be met, or the student may be required to redo the assignment.

Campus Service

A student may be required to complete a set amount of Campus Service hours, working with our Facilities Management team, in order to restore any damage/harm done to the community during a violation of the Code.

Fines

A fine may be issued to a student for an alcohol, tobacco, or other drugs violation. It is worth noting that all money from these fines go back to the College, in order to help us better serve students. For example, our typical $250 fine for an alcohol violation goes to our ATOD programming, to help educate students about Alcohol, Tobacco, and Other Drugs.

Restitution

A student may be required to pay the cost of repair or replacement for any College or State property damaged or lost by the student.

Conduct Agreement

A Conduct Agreement is an agreement that is to be signed by the student, acknowledging that any further conduct violations could result in termination of that student’s housing contract and/or exclusion from any College housing or events.

Termination of Housing Contract

If an incident is serious enough, or if a student has multiple repeated conduct violations, it may be determined by the Conduct Officer that a student living in our residential facilities may have their housing contract terminated and that student would no longer be allowed to reside in the residential facilities on campus. If a student has their contract terminated due to student misconduct, the student will be responsible for all charges for the remainder of the contract period.

Exclusion from College Housing and Events

Due to serious conduct concern, a student may be excluded from all residential housing facilities (both residence halls as well as apartment complexes) and all student activities. This exclusion is permanent, and can only be appealed with the Executive Director of Student and Residential Life. If an excluded is found to be in any College housing facility or at any student event, that student will be subject to arrest and prosecution for criminal trespass.
