Title IX Sanctions for Students

Range of Possible Sanctions

On final determination of responsibility the following sanctions may be imposed against a respondent:


  • Disciplinary Reprimand. This may be an oral or written warning. It notifies a student that any further violation of College regulations may subject the student to more severe disciplinary actions.
  • Disciplinary Probation. This is designated to encourage and require a student to cease and desist from violating College regulations. Students on probation are notified in writing that any further misbehavior on their part will lead to more severe action. Disciplinary Probation will be for the remainder of the existing semester and for all of the following semesters of attendance.
  • Disciplinary Suspension. This excludes a student from the College for a designated period of time, usually not more than two semesters. While on suspension, a student will not be allowed to take any course at the College. At the end of the designated period of time, the student must make formal reapplication for admission.
  • Class Suspension. A student may be suspended from attending one or more specified courses for improper behavior. Class suspensions are for the remainder of the semester, and the student will be assigned a letter grade of "F" for each course from which he/she is suspended.
  • Library Suspension. A student may be suspended from using the library for improper or disruptive behavior in the library. Library suspension will be for a period of time not to exceed the remainder of the semester.
  • Disciplinary Expulsion. This is the strongest disciplinary action. This category of severe penalty generally indicates the recipient may not return to the College.
    • Disciplinary expulsion normally would be the least-used disciplinary action and would be applied only to students who are guilty of chronic misbehavior or a major breach of conduct. The College reserves the right, but has no duty, to lift the probation against re- enrollment upon its consideration of a written application for readmission evidencing that the student has demonstrated an ability and readiness to comply with all College rules and regulations. The College will not consider such a request until at least one year from the date of expulsion.
  • Payment of Damages. Charges will be assessed against a given student or students for the amount necessary to repair damage caused by student or students' behavior.
  • No Trespass Order. A no trespass order may be issued for individuals who have been accused of and/or found in violation of sexual harassment.
  • No Contact Order. A no contact order may be issued for individuals who have been accused of and/or found in violation of sexual harassment.
