Disciplinary action is based on the seriousness of the offense, individual circumstances and the best interest of the general educational community of Mount Aloysius. The sanction(s) which may be imposed upon individuals or organizations for the commission of the offenses recognized by the College include, but are not limited to, the following:
A conduct warning may be issued when the nature and circumstances of the conduct do not warrant more severe disciplinary action; however, a written warning will be a matter of record in the Vice President for Student Affairs.
Service to the College
Service to the College entails performing duties in departments including housekeeping, maintenance, and food service. The conditions and the time period of the work assignment are the prerogative of the authority imposing them and will be stated in writing. If a student fails to perform the services within the stated time period, a fine may be imposed equal to the amount of un-worked hours, multiplied by the current rate for College work study wages or additional judicial sanctions may be imposed. Failure to pay a fine may result in immediate restriction from residence halls until the fine is paid in full and/or other disciplinary sanctions.
The amount and due dates of fines are determined by the authority imposing them and will be stated in writing. The College reserves the right to initiate a policy for fining students for violations during the academic year.
Reimbursement must be paid for damages or misappropriations of College property or property of a member of the College community.
Loss of Privileges
The conditions and the time period of the probation are the prerogative of the authority imposing them and will be stated in writing. The following are intended to serve as sanctions:
Probation entails a written reprimand for the violation of specified regulations. Probation remains in effect for a designated period of time and includes the probability of more severe disciplinary sanctions if the student is found to be violating any College regulation(s) during the probationary time.
Suspension is termination of student status for a specific period of time. The conditions of re-admission will be stated in a sanction letter from the Vice President for Student Affairs. Students suspended for the remainder of a semester are charged full tuition, room and board (if applicable), and fees for the semester in which the suspension occurs. Students are assigned the grades that would be appropriate if withdrawal were voluntary. A statement of the student's status is sent to the academic dean, registrar, curriculum chairperson, admissions office and controller's office.
