Any of the following actions will subject a student to disciplinary action: • Violation of federal, state, local law or College policy (see categories that follow) renders the student subject to disciplinary action by the College. • Students who pose a danger to persons or property or who constitute a threat of disrupting the academic process are subject to disciplinary action, including summary suspension from the College. • Students who create an abusive, threatening, hostile, offensive, or intimidating educational environment are subject to disciplinary action. • Students who deface or damage school property shall be required to pay the full cost of the damages. Student organizations are expected to take reasonable precautions to prevent violations of College regulations and to assist the College in preventing them. When information is received that a student has allegedly violated a College policy or administrative rule, the alleged violations shall be investigated and may result in dismissal of the allegation, summoning the student for a conference, or suspending the student pending an investigation.
