Wash. Admin. Code § 495A-121-044 - Disciplinary sanctions

The following disciplinary sanctions may be imposed upon students found to have violated the student conduct code. Depending upon the misconduct, more than one sanction may be imposed. Other than college dismissal or revocation or withholding of a degree or certificate, disciplinary sanctions are not made a part of the student's academic record but are part of the student's disciplinary record. Violation of any term or condition of a disciplinary sanction constitutes a new violation and may subject the student to additional sanctions.

(1) Disciplinary warning. A verbal statement to a student that there is a violation and that continued violations may be cause for further disciplinary action.
(2) Written reprimand. Notice in writing that the student has violated one or more terms of this code of conduct and that continuation of the same or similar behavior may result in more severe disciplinary action.
(3) Disciplinary probation. Formal action placing specific conditions and restrictions upon the student's continued attendance depending upon the seriousness of the violation and may include a deferred disciplinary sanction. If the student subject to a deferred disciplinary sanction is found in violation of any college rule during the time of disciplinary probation, the deferred disciplinary sanction may include, but is not limited to, a suspension or a dismissal from the college that shall take effect immediately. If the deferred sanction is a suspension in excess of ten days or a dismissal, the student shall have a right to appeal to the student/ faculty disciplinary committee. Other deferred sanctions shall be subject to brief administrative proceedings as described in this chapter.

Any sanction shall be in addition to any sanction or conditions arising from the new violation. Probation may be for a limited period of time or may be for the duration of the student's attendance at the college.

(4) Disciplinary suspension. Dismissal from the college and from the student status for a stated period of time. There will be no refund of tuition or fees for the quarter in which the action was taken.
(5) Dismissal. The revocation of all rights and privileges of being a student at Bates Technical College and exclusion from all college campuses and college owned or controlled facilities without any possibility of returning. There is no refund of tuition or fees for the quarter in which the action is taken.

Disciplinary terms and conditions that may be imposed in conjunction with the imposition of a disciplinary sanction include, but are not limited to, the following:

(6) Educational sanction. The college may require the student to complete an educational activity or experience directly related to the violation committed at the student's expense.
(7) Professional evaluation. Referral for drug, alcohol, psychological, or medical evaluation by an appropriately certified or licensed professional may be required. The student may choose the professional within the scope of practice and with the professional credentials as defined by the college. The student will sign all necessary releases to allow the college access to the evaluation. The student's return to college may be conditioned upon compliance with recommendations set forth in a professional evaluation. If the evaluation indicates that the student is not capable of functioning within the college community, the student remains suspended until further evaluation recommends that the student is capable of reentering the college and complying with the rules of conduct.
(8) Not in good standing. If a student is deemed not in good standing with the college, the student is subject to the following restrictions:
(a) Ineligible to hold an office in any student organization recognized by the college;
(b) Ineligible to hold an elected or appointed office of the college; and
(c) Ineligible to represent the college to anyone outside the college community in any capacity including representing the college at any official function or any forms of intercollegiate competition or representation.
(9) Restitution or monetary fine. Reimbursement for damage to or misappropriation of property, for injury to persons, or for reasonable costs incurred by the college in pursuing an investigation or disciplinary proceeding. This may take the form of monetary reimbursement, appropriate service, monetary fine, or other compensation.
(10) Revocation of admission, degree, or certificate. Admission to or the award of a degree or certificate from the college may be revoked for fraud, misrepresentation, violation of standards of conduct for students in obtaining the degree or certificate, or other serious violations committed by a student prior to graduation.
(11) Withholding degree or certificate. The college may withhold awarding a degree or certificate otherwise earned until the completion of the process set forth in this chapter and including the completion of all sanctions imposed.
(12) No trespass order. A student may be restricted from college property based on misconduct.
(13) No contact order. An order directing a student to have no contact with a specified member of the college community, visitor, or a particular college facility.
