Records of disciplinary cases are maintained by the Student Affairs Division Office. Generally such records are maintained for at least three years after the actual or intended date of graduation of the student in question, whichever date comes closest to the actual time when the student leaves the College. These records are treated as private within the provisions of the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act and the Sexual Assault Victim's Bill of Rights. In cases, however, where the sanction assigned to a student is disciplinary probation, suspension or dismissal, the necessary academic and administrative offices are notified of the change of status of the student. Also, other offices are notified when it involves specific services. Suspension and dismissal records are maintained indefinitely by the College.
