Disciplinary Consequences

The following consequences may be imposed upon a student found to have violated institutional regulations. It is understood that more than one of the consequences listed below may be imposed for any single violation.

Warning - A written notice that the student has violated college regulations.

Probation - A written reprimand for violation of specified regulations. The probation shall specify the period and conditions of the consequence. Normally, the period of time shall not exceed one (1) academic year. The written conditions shall also give the student notice of any consequences related to further violation of institutional regulations during the probationary period.

Loss of Privileges - Denial of specified privileges for a specified period of time.

Discretionary Consequences - Work assignments, community service, referrals to educational workshops, counseling or other related discretionary assignments. Failure to complete assigned consequences will typically result in a monetary assessment equal to $10 for every hour not completed or attended as assigned.

Monetary Assessments - Most fines and judicial-related costs are published in the Disciplinary Consequences Guidelines section. Restitution, the compensation for loss, damage, or injury may take the form of appropriate community service and/or monetary or material replacement.  Failure to pay or make arrangements to pay fines and other monetary assessments may prevent the student from enrollment in subsequent academic terms.

Interim Suspension - In certain circumstances, the Vice President for Student Services (or designee) may impose an interim suspension prior to a judicial hearing for the following reasons:

  • To insure the safety and well-being of members of the college community, or to preserve college property.
  • To insure the student’s own physical or emotional safety and well being.
  • If a student poses a definite threat of disruption or interference with the normal operations of the college.

During an interim suspension, the student may be denied access to college facilities including attendance at classes or other college activities or privileges for which the student might otherwise be eligible.

Residence Hall Suspension - Separation of the student from the residence hall(s) for a definite period of time, after which the student is eligible to return. Conditions for readmission may be specified. Suspension may result in the forfeiture of all or part of the housing fee for the remainder of the academic term according to the College’s published refund policy.

Residence Hall Expulsion - Permanent separation of the student from college-owned housing units that may result in forfeiture of all or part of the housing fee for the remainder of the academic term according to the College’s published refund policy.

College Suspension - Separation of the student from Augustana for a definite period of time, after which the student is eligible to return. Conditions for readmission may be specified. Tuition and fees may be refunded if the period of suspension results in a withdrawal from classes according to the published withdrawal dates in the College’s refund policy.
