A student's status with regard to discipline is regulated by the following definitions:
- Good Standing
The status of good standing indicates that a student has been duly enrolled in the university and is eligible to participate in all activities of the university. A student is presumed to be in good standing unless the student forfeits that status by established misconduct.
This status indicates that a student has been through the judicial process due to the seriousness of his/her conduct and has been cautioned that further behavior of the same or similar type will be cause for further disciplinary action by the university.
- Housing Probation
This status indicates that a student’s behavior has raised serious questions concerning the student’s status as a resident. The student will be given a stated period during which his/her conduct will establish whether s/he is to be returned to good standing by having met definite requirements in behavior or whether s/he is to be dismissed from university housing.
- Disciplinary probation
This status indicates that the student's behavior has raised serious questions concerning the student's status as a member of the university community. The student will be given a stated period during which his/her conduct will establish whether he/she is to be returned to good standing by having met definite requirements in behavior or whether he/she is to be suspended or dismissed from the university. The sanction of disciplinary probation may be imposed on a student by the judicial process, the Dean of Students or his/her designee. The student may not represent the university or hold office during the period of probation. Other conditions typically include, but are not limited to:
- Exclusion from all or designated co-curricular activities, to include practicing with an intercollegiate athletic team.
- Exclusion from the use of specified university facilities.
- The performance of community service projects.
- Exclusion from sponsorship of or participation in educational and/or athletic programs.
- The re-assignment of resident to another residence unit for the period of probation.
Parents of students placed on disciplinary probation may be so notified by the Dean of Student or the chairperson of the judicial board if the student is a minor. A statement of offense and decision will be placed in the student's file in the Dean of Student’s office.
If while on disciplinary probation a student is found responsible for a further infraction of university policies/regulations, the student will be subject to the possibility of suspension/expulsion from the university and/or university housing.
- Interim Suspension
The immediate separation of a student from the university or university facilities, as authorized by the Dean of Students or his/her designated representative, takes place when the continued presence of a person constitutes a danger to the health, safety, or welfare of the university community or university property. At the time a student is interim suspended, the individual affected shall be informed of a right to a hearing without undue delay. The student shall remain dismissed until the hearing determines his/her status and is not allowed on campus or any university property or event.
The status of suspension indicates an involuntary separation of the student from university housing and/or the university for a stated time due to serious or repeated violations of the rules or for undesirable conduct on the part of the student. The Student Conduct Process or the Dean of Students may impose this penalty. Suspension requires petitioning on the part of the student when specific conditions must be met before the student is eligible for readmission.
- Parents of a student who is suspended may be so notified by the Dean of Students or his/her designee if student is a minor.
- Statement of offense and decision will be placed in the student's file in the Office of the Dean of Students
This status, the most serious disciplinary action taken by the University, indicates the immediate, involuntary and permanent separation of a student from the University because of established gross misconduct on the part of a student.
- After notice of expulsion, a student must leave the campus immediately. The student will not be allowed on any University owned or leased property or allowed to any University event.
- The expelled student does not have the privilege to apply for readmission to Barry.
- The Dean of Students may notify the parents of an expelled student of the university's decision if the student is a minor.
- Statement of offense, and decision will be placed in the student's file in the Office of the Dean of Students
- A student's transcript will include documentation of expulsion.
- A student dismissed for disciplinary reasons at any time shall not be entitled to any claim or refund.
