1. All cases involving student infractions of College policies and regulations will be adjudicated by  a staff member acting as a hearing agent except where noted. 

2. Cases of civil rights violations, discrimination, harassment, and sexual misconduct will follow the Civil Rights Grievance Policy and Procedures.  For further details about the Civil Rights Grievance Policy and Procedures please see

3.  If the case is of a serious nature the case may go directly to a hearing with the Director of Campus Life or the Vice President of Student Life.
