6.24.5. Suspension and Expulsion

Students can be suspended or expelled for particularly egregious violations of the honor code (see Sec. 11.18.4. and Sec. 11.18.6.) or the code of student conduct (see Sec. H of the code of student conduct, which can be found in Sec. 12.4. of this Bulletin).

A suspension or an expulsion is a retroactive action. If a student is expelled, that suspension or expulsion is retroactive to the start of the semester during which the precipitating event occurred, unless the conduct process specifies a process for the student to complete classes in progress. The student is not permitted to finish the current semester, and will be removed from campus when the expulsion is enforced. They will remain absent from campus for the duration of the expulsion period. Suspensions are typically for one semester or more. Expulsions are permanent separations from the University.

A student who is suspended or expelled will be assigned the grade of “W” (withdrew) for all courses in which the student was enrolled, except that the student will receive the grade of “F” in any course wherein the student committed an honor code violation which led to the suspension or expulsion.

Students are responsible for the financial and financial aid consequences of being subjected to expulsion, as detailed in part in
Sec. 5.19.
