- The student presents a substantial risk of harm to, or endangers the safety, health, or well-being of, the University community or any member of the University community.
- The student presents a substantial risk of significantly disrupting the University community or any member of the community.
- The student has demonstrated a significant and/or persistent inability to meet the community expectations of independent living or academic engagement.
- In matters of alleged Sex Discrimination, the Chief Title IX Officer has the authority to impose Administrative Separation. Any student placed on Administrative Separation pending the Student Conduct Process may not return until after the conclusion of the Student Conduct Process. Should a responding party be found responsible for a violation of the Code of Student Conduct, Administrative Separation may be continued or initiated pending conclusion of any appeal proceedings.
