Notice of Charges
Students shall be notified of College charges in writing, unless a more effective form of notification is deemed appropriate. Charges may be presented in person, by email to the accused student’s official College email address, or by mail to the accused student’s local or permanent address on file with the Registrar’s Office. All students are required to maintain an accurate and current local and permanent address with the College Registrar.
Following notification of charges, a student who has been charged is strongly encouraged to and shall be afforded the opportunity to meet with a College official, VP, or VP designee, who shall explain the College judicial process and discuss the charges with the student who has been charged. Failure of the accused student to respond to the initiation of charges or schedule a preliminary meeting shall in no way prevent the College from scheduling and conducting a hearing in the absence of the accused student.
