A student alleged to have violated a provision of this chapter shall be notified to meet with the dean or designee for possible disciplinary action.
After a careful review of the circumstances surrounding the alleged misconduct, the dean or designee may take any of the following actions:
Terminate the proceeding;
Dismiss the case after whatever counseling and advice the dean or designee deems appropriate;
Impose appropriate disciplinary action (reprimand, probation, suspension, expulsion), subject to student’s right of appeal.
The student will be notified in writing of the determination made by the dean or designee.
If after consideration of the alleged misconduct, the recommendation of the dean or designee is for disciplinary action, the student may:
Accept the disciplinary action, or File, within fifteen (15) calendar days following receipt of the notification of disciplinary action, a written request for a formal hearing pursuant to the provisions of WAC 495C-120-160. If the request is not filed within the prescribed time, the right to do so is waived and the disciplinary action becomes final.
If a hearing is requested, notice of the hearing shall be given to all parties at least seven days before the hearing. The notice will indicate the names and addresses of all parties, the names and addresses of their representatives, a statement of the time, place, and nature of the proceeding, a short and plain statement of the matters asserted, and the legal authority and jurisdiction under which the hearing is to be held.
