6.0 Emergency Suspension

Pending a hearing or other disposition of charges against a student, the Provost, Associate Vice Chancellor of Student Services, Dean of Compliance & Judicial Affairs, Deans of Student Development or their designees may take such immediate interim action as is appropriate to the circumstances. This includes suspending the right of the student to be present on campus and to attend classes or activities.  The College administration must undertake an individualized safety and risk analysis and determine whether the student poses an immediate threat to the health or safety of others.  The College administration shall promptly send written notice to the student via hand delivery, electronic mail or first-class U.S. mail.

In determining whether an emergency suspension is warranted, the administration shall consider the weight and reliability of the evidence or report of wrongdoing.  A student who is suspended on an emergency basis is entitled to a hearing at his or her request utilizing Hearing Procedure B. The hearing shall be held as soon as practicable, generally within 10 working days of the administration’s receipt of the student’s request.
