Please consult the college website, a college Student Life office, or the campus Dean of Student Services for procedures.
If there is a finding that a student has violated the Student Code of Conduct, one or more of the following sanctions may be imposed:
A Notice served upon the student advising him/her that he/she is violating or has violated College regulations.
After a finding of violation of the Code of Conduct, restriction of student’s privileges for a designated period of time including the probability of more severe disciplinary sanctions if the student is found to be violating any College regulations during the probationary period.
3. Other disciplinary sanction
Fines, restitution, denial of privileges, assignment to perform services for the benefit of the college or community; or other sanction that doesn’t result in the student being denied the right of attending classes.
4. College suspension or expulsion:
An involuntary separation of the student from the College for misconduct not based on academic performance for a specified period of time.
- Suspension is a separation that shall not exceed three academic terms per suspension for any singular offense or situation. While a student is suspended, he or she is not eligible for admission or re-admission at any of the community colleges within CCCS. Once the suspension is lifted the student is eligible for admission or re-admission.
Examples of suspension include, but are not limited to the following: the college, a department or program, a class, residence hall, use of a college facility or an activity.
Students may be suspended from one class period by the responsible faculty member or adjunct instructor. Longer suspensions can only be implemented by the CSSO or designee in accordance with this procedure.
- Expulsion is an indefinite separation from the college. The student is not eligible for admission or re-admission at any of the community colleges within CCCS.
- In exceptional cases where a student wants to be considered for admission or re-admission after an expulsion has been implemented, the student bears the burden to prove the behavior that resulted in the expulsion has been resolved. It is within the college’s discretion to admit or deny the student.
5. Interim Suspension:
An immediate action taken by the CSSO to ensure the safety and well-being of members of the college community; preservation of college property; or if the student poses a definite threat of disruption or interference to others or the normal operations of the college. In the event of an interim suspension, the hearing before the CSSO or designee shall occur as soon as possible following the interim suspension. If the college issues a permanent sanction, the student shall be afforded appeal rights as discussed below. If the college does not implement a permanent sanction, the interim suspension will be removed from the student’s record.
Disciplinary procedures are listed in the FRCC Student Handbook. Copies are available in the Office of Student Life, at the college information desks, and in the Office of the Dean of Student Services. Interpretation of the disciplinary procedures is the responsibility of the Dean of Student Services.
