The vice president of student services or designee may suspend a student from the college for an interim period pending disciplinary or criminal proceedings, or medical evaluation. The interim suspension will become immediately effective without prior notice whenever there is evidence that the continued presence of the student at the college poses a substantial and immediate threat to him/herself or to others, or to the stability and continuance of normal college functions. A student placed on interim suspension who is unable to complete course work for the semester in which the interim suspension was issued will be given a “W” grade(s).
A student suspended on an interim basis will be given a prompt opportunity to appear personally before the vice president of student services or designee in order to discuss the following issues:
- The reliability of the information concerning the student’s conduct, including the matter of his or her identity.
- Whether the conduct and surrounding circumstances reasonably indicate that the continued presence of the student on college premises poses a substantial and immediate threat to himself or herself, to others, or the stability and continuance of normal college functions.
