Student Code of Conduct - Summary Suspension and Alteration of Privileges

  1. 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 premises; attending classes; participating in University sponsored activities; and/or maintaining a residence on campus or Coborn Plaza Apartments for an interim period prior to completion of the student conduct process.
  2. 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 the campus would constitute a threat to the safety and well-being of members of the campus community.
  3. 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 mail to the local 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. For a summary suspension, the student shall be provided an opportunity for a hearing within a reasonable time period, not to exceed nine days.
