Disciplinary Sanctions

Students/student leaders/clubs/organizations who fail to follow the Code of Conduct are subject to disciplinary actions/sanctions authorized by the Student Advocate Appeals Office. These include:

  1. An oral admonition/statement.
  2. An official written reprimand, warning, or notice that continuation/repetition of wrongful conduct can result in harsher action.
  3. Educational sanctions that include fines, public service, participation in selected programs, and/or the assignment of a research project. The student is responsible for the payment of any fees related to the extra programs or research project.
  4. Disciplinary probation/exclusion or restrictions from privileges and extracurricular activities.
  5. Restitution/reimbursement for any damage(s) or loss(es) to property or person(s).
  6. Forfeiture of academic credit.
  7. Requiring a release from a mental health or medical professional.
  8. Suspension/exclusion from classes and privileges for a defined period of time.
  9. Expulsion/termination of the club/organizations/student(s).
  10. Sanctions as deemed necessary by the Student Advocate Appeals Office.

All disciplinary actions are reviewed by the Student Advocate Appeals Office.

Unusual circumstances (i.e., the threat of personal safety, physical danger, repeated violations, etc.) may result in dispositions decided on through informal hearings. Such dispositions may result in suspension, exclusion from classes, or expulsion/termination of the student’s status at SEARK.

Students on disciplinary suspension, exclusion, or expulsion are forbidden to use college facilities during the term of the sanction. A student or student club/organization facing disciplinary sanctions may receive temporary sanctions from the Student Advocate Appeals Office. These include suspension pending the final disposition of the case or temporary suspensions imposed in order to maintain the orderly operation of the college.
