The process by which a student may be dismissed from a program is as follows:
Any concern related to a student’s misconduct may be brought by staff, students, or the public and shall be directed to the Senior Educational Administrator (SEA).
The SEA will arrange a meeting with the student to discuss the concern(s) within five days of the complaint.
Any necessary inquiry or investigation shall be completed within five business days of the initial meeting with the student.
The SEA will meet the student and do one of the following:
Determine that the concern(s) were not substantiated; file is closed.
Determine that the concern(s) were substantiated, in whole or in part, and either:
Give the student a warning clearing up the consequences of further misconduct; or
Set a probationary period with appropriate conditions; or
Recommend that the student should be dismissed from the college.
The SEA will prepare a written summary of the determination. A copy shall be given to the student, and the original will be placed in the student file.
In case the student is issued a warning or placed on probation, the SEA and the student both will sign the written warning or probationary conditions and a copy will be provided to the student. The original document will be placed in the student’s file.
The SEA or authorized officials of the college will deliver to the student a letter of dismissal and a calculation of refund due or tuition owing, depending on the status of the student’s financial account with the college.
If a refund is due to the student, the due amount will be paid within 30 days of the dismissal.
If the student owes tuition or other fees to the college, the SEA or authorized official of the college will undertake the collection of the amount owing.
