11.18.5. Protocol for Suspension

If the honor council votes to suspend a student, that vote passes as a directive to the provost, who will either implement it (following resolution of any possible appeal; see Sec. 11.23.) or who will meet personally with the members of the judicial panel who voted for suspension to explain why he/she refuses to implement it. A suspension is a future action. If a student is suspended, he/she is permitted to finish the current semester, and will receive any grades and credits earned. The student is then suspended from the next regular (fall or spring) semester, and also from any intervening summer semesters, meaning he/she cannot register for classes or even be on campus during the suspension period. Additional specific regulations governing readmission can be found in Sec. 6.24.5. of the Bulletin.
