Student Code of Conduct - Summary Suspension and Altered Privileges
Summary suspension is defined as a suspension imposed without a formal hearing to ensure the safety and wellbeing of members of the University community.
- At any time following the submission of a written complaint, the Vice President for Student Life and Development or designee may alter or suspend the rights of a student, including, but not limited to: being present on University owned or rented premises; attending classes; participating in University sponsored activities; and/or maintaining a residence on campus or Coborn Plaza for an interim period prior to resolution of the student conduct process.
- The Vice President for Student Life and Development or designee will base the decision on whether the allegation is apparently reliable and whether the continued presence of the student on University owned or rented premises reasonably poses a threat to the physical or emotional well-being of any individual, including the student, or for reasons relating to the safety and welfare of University owned or rented property or any University function.
- The decision to alter or suspend the rights of a student for an interim period will be communicated in writing and will be effective immediately. Notification will be delivered in person or sent by certified mail to the current address provided to the Office of Records and Registration and through HuskyNet email. Failure or refusal to take receipt of notification will not negate or postpone the action.
- A student who is summary suspended or has their privileges altered for an interim period will be provided an opportunity to respond to the allegations to the Vice President for Student Life and Development or designee no later than two days following receipt of notification.
- The summary suspension or altered privileges will remain in effect until a final campus decision has been made on the complaint or until the Vice President for Student Life and Development or designee determines the reason for imposing the summary suspension or alteration of privileges no longer exists.
- For a summary suspension, the student shall be provided an opportunity for a hearing within a reasonable time period, not to exceed nine days.
