§ 1‑311 Certain Consequences of Disciplinary Action

  1. Sanctions may be imposed for violations of the student discipline rules stated in this part (Article 1, Part 3) and those sections listed in § 1-301(d) above. Sanctions include but are not limited to: (1) dismissal, (2) suspension, (3) conduct probation, (4) censure, and (5) reprimand. In addition, disciplinary action may result in the consequences outlined in subsections (b), (c), and (d) below.
  2. The Senate Committee on Student Discipline has the right to withhold privileges of the academic community, including the conferral of the degree itself, at any point prior to the conferral of the degree. In instances in which dismissal is a possibility for disciplinary infractions, the conferral of the degree is withheld until the disciplinary action has been resolved. (See § 3‑313 and §§ 3‑701 to §3‑704.)
  3. Students dismissed or suspended from the university for disciplinary reasons may be excluded from university classes, activities, facilities, buildings, and/or premises by the appropriate disciplinary authority. The same exclusions may be applied by the Chancellor in exercising the power to suspend students. (See § 3‑508 on refunds.)
  4. Cancellation or withdrawal from the university does not abrogate the authority of the institution to pursue disciplinary action (see subsection 3-313(a)(3)).
