Interim Suspension

In certain circumstances, the Vice-President for Student Affairs/Dean of Students, or a designee, may impose a College or residence hall suspension prior to a Student Conduct Council Hearing.

1. Interim suspension may be imposed under the following conditions:

     a) when a student is criminally charged with a felony or other serious criminal offense by law enforcement authorities, whether the alleged offense occurred prior to or after his/her first matriculation*;

     b) to ensure the safety and well-being of members of the College  community or preservation of College  property;

     c) to ensure the student's own physical or emotional safety and well-being; or

     d) if the student poses an ongoing threat of disruption of, or interference with, the normal operations of the College.

2. During the interim suspension, a student shall be denied access to the residence halls and/or to the campus (including classes) and/or all other College activities or privileges for which the student might otherwise be eligible, as the Vice-President for Student Affairs/Dean of Students, or his designee, may determine to be appropriate.

3. The interim suspension does not replace the regular process, which shall proceed on the normal schedule, up to and through a Student Conduct Council Hearing, if required.  

* Students found guilty of a felony or serious criminal offense by law enforcement authorities may be sanctioned by the College without a hearing to include suspension or expulsion.
