In most instances, it is the policy of the college not to alter the status of a student until after the disposition of proceedings pending before the Academic Honor Board, the Academic or Judicial Appeals Board, the Student Judicial Board, or other college body or before a civil or criminal court or other governmental agency. However, if in the opinion of the president of the college, the provost, or the dean of students, either:

  1. the nature of the student's conduct that is or is expected to be the subject of proceedings before one or more of the above boards, bodies, courts, or agencies is such that it might affect the safety or wellbeing of the student, the safety or wellbeing of others, or the operations or reputation of the college; or
  2. the nature of the student's conduct, although not within the jurisdiction of any of the above boards, bodies, courts, or agencies, is nevertheless such that it might affect the safety or wellbeing of the student, the safety or wellbeing of others, or the operations or reputation of the college.

Then the president, the provost, or the dean of students shall have the right to require the student to leave the campus pending the outcome of the proceeding, or (if no proceeding is pending or anticipated) during such period as the president, provost, or dean of students may determine.

The above administrative action may be taken even though the conduct occurs off campus. If a student is arrested on or off campus, it is the student's responsibility to notify the dean of students within 48 hours of the arrest.
