In exceptional circumstances, the VP of Student Life or designate may issue an immediate, temporary suspension of a student prior to the completion of the Formal Accountability Process. This action will be taken when it is reasonable to conclude that serious misconduct may have occurred and/or that a student's continued presence on campus presents an unreasonable risk to the safety of him/herself or others. Students receiving this suspension must leave the campus immediately. The Formal Accountability Process will proceed without prejudice to the student in question, and the emergency temporary suspension will be replaced by the decision rendered at the conclusion of this process.
