Interim sanctions may be immediately imposed without a hearing if based on information available at the time it is determined that the student may be an endangerment to the safety or well being of them self or other members of the university community or disruptive to the university’s educational processes.
Whether or not interim sanctions are imposed is determined by the Vice President of Student Affairs or designee in consultation with appropriate members of the university community.
If the student is concerned about the appropriateness of the interim sanctions he/she may meet with the administrator who imposed the sanctions in order to provide additional information to be taken into consideration and ask to have the sanctions modified. If the student has met with the initial administrator and no modifications to the interim sanctions were made the student may contact the Judicial Programs Office and request that the interim sanctions be reviewed by another administrator.
Interim sanctions may be in effect until a judicial hearing for the alleged policy violation occurs and a final outcome is rendered.
Interim sanctions are not formal judicial sanctions.
