Withdrawal for Unsatisfactory Conduct

The Senate of the University may require a student to withdraw from the University at any time for unsatisfactory conduct, for failure to abide by regulations, for unsatisfactory progress in a program of studies or training, or for any other reason which is deemed to show that withdrawal is in the interests of the student and/or the University.

Cases brought forward under this policy will be referred to an ad hoc committee of Senate, to be named by the Senate (currently the Senate Nominating Committee), for disposition, with the understanding that the student would have the right of appeal to the Senate Committee on Appeals on Academic Standing. Both the reasons for bringing the case and the response of the student should be heard before a final decision is reached. The ad hoc committee must ensure that the case is conducted fairly. A tie vote on the decision upholds the decision being appealed and the case is dismissed.
