Mandatory Medical and/or Psychological Withdrawal

When, in the judgment of the University, an individual's behavior is disruptive to the educational and living environment that the University seeks to maintain, the University will conduct a direct threat analysis to determine (a) if the conduct at issue is a manifestation of a physical or mental impairment which substantially limits one or more of the student's major life activities; (b) the nature, duration and severity of the risk posed by the student's conduct; (c) the probability that injury will occur as a result of the student's conduct; and (d) if reasonable modification of policies, practices and procedures will sufficiently mitigate the risk of the student's conduct.

Should the University determine that a direct threat is more likely not to exist as a consequence of the student's conduct, the University may take interim steps, such as suspension, where the safety of the student or others on campus is of immediate concern. When such a determination is made, the student will be expected to vacate any student housing in which he/she resides and withdraw from campus. Thereafter, the University will determine if the student's return to campus would involve a significant risk of the recurrence of conduct that would be harmful to the student and/or others on campus.

Should the University determine the student is not eligible to return to campus, the student will be informed, in writing, of the reasons for removal, including any/all violations of the Student Conduct Code. The student will be afforded the opportunity for a hearing in accordance with established student-hearing rules and procedures.
