Procedures for immediate interim suspension.

In consultation with university officials, the dean of students may suspend a student from the university on an immediate interim basis, pending criminal proceedings, or a medical evaluation, and/or action through the student conduct process.
(1) An interim suspension may only be imposed when the dean of students has cause to believe that the student:
(a) Has violated the student conduct code; and
(b) Poses an immediate danger to the safety or security of the university community; and/or
(c) Poses an ongoing threat of serious disruption or interference with the normal operations of the university.
(2) During the interim suspension, a student may be denied access to university activities and privileges, including access to classes, university property, and/or campus residence halls and apartments.
(3) A student suspended from the university on an interim basis shall be notified in writing of the terms of the interim suspension. The notice, which shall be delivered via email to the student's official university account and in person if possible, shall include the alleged violation(s), the circumstances, reasons, and terms of the interim suspension, and the time, date and location of a meeting to discuss the interim suspension.
(4) The interim suspension meeting shall occur no fewer than three business days and no more than seven business days from the date that the notification is sent. The student may elect to waive the three-day notice if an earlier date is mutually agreed upon. The purpose of the interim suspension meeting is for the student to have an opportunity to demonstrate why the terms specified in the interim suspension notice should not continue, or why the suspension should be less restrictive.
(5) Cases of interim suspension are given priority through the student conduct process. The interim suspension will remain in effect until a final decision has been made on the pending code violation(s) or until the dean of students determines that the reasons for imposing the interim suspension no longer exist or are not supported by available evidence.
