Article 11: Sanctions

Sanctions can be imposed for a violation of the student code of conduct. One and/or any combination of sanctions may be imposed for any single student code of conduct violation. Students retain responsibility for all bills incurred (i.e., tuition, fees, housing rent for the period of the lease agreement, etc.) regardless of the outcome of the disciplinary/academic hearings. Once a student has been finally assessed a disciplinary sanction, however, no more severe sanctions may be assessed against him or her by any higher University authority.

 

Section 11.01  Sanctions

Academic Sanctions: The Honor Council or the instructor may assign appropriate academic sanctions based upon the specifics of the incident. The provision will be clearly defined. Such academic requirements may include, but are not limited to, plagiarism coursework, educational workshop, etc.

Banishment from Campus: In addition to being suspended or expelled from the University, the student is banned from entering the grounds and/or facilities owned, operated and/or maintained by the University. Entrance onto campus or into those facilities/areas will be viewed as a violation of this sanction and the student will be confronted and charged accordingly for trespassing and failure to comply.

Campus Housing Probation: An official notice that the student’s conduct is in violation of residence hall rules, University Apartments rules and/or University rules and that more stringent student conduct sanctions, including removal from housing, may result if future violations occur.

Community/University Service: A student may be offered an opportunity to complete a specified number of hours of Community/University Service in lieu of other sanctions.

Conduct Probation: An official warning that the student’s conduct is in violation of Texas A&M International University Student Rules, but is not sufficiently serious to warrant expulsion, dismissal or suspension. A student on conduct probation is deemed “not in good standing” with the University. This sanction includes the same restrictions listed in Deferred Suspension.

Conduct Review: An official warning that the student's conduct is in violation of TAMIU Student Rules, but is not sufficiently serious to warrant expulsion, dismissal, suspension, or conduct probation.  A student on conduct review shall have their conduct under review for a specified period of time.  This sanction may require regular meetings with an appropriate official to ascertain and evaluate compliance with student rules.  Additional restrictions or conditions also may be imposed, depending on the nature and seriousness of the misconduct.  Students placed on this sanction remain in good standing with the University.  If there is a finding of responsibility for subsequent violations of the student rules during this period of time, more severe sanctions will be administered.

Deferred Loss of Campus Housing Privilege: The sanction of Loss of Campus Housing Privilege may be placed in deferred status. If a student is found in violation of any University rule during the time of the deferred sanction, removal from housing takes effect immediately without further review. Additional student conduct sanctions appropriate to the new violation may also be taken.

Deferred Suspension: The sanction of Deferred Suspension may be placed in deferred status. If the student is found in violation of any University rule during the time of Deferred Suspension, the Suspension takes effect immediately without further review. Additional student conduct sanctions appropriate to the new violation also may be taken. A student who has been issued a Deferred Suspension sanction is deemed “not in good standing” with the University. A student who is not in good standing is subject to the following restrictions:

  1. Ineligibility to hold an office in any student organization recognized by the University or to hold any elected or appointed position within the University;
  2. Ineligibility to compete in intercollegiate athletic activity;
  3. Ineligibility to represent the University in any capacity, including representing the University at any official function;
  4. Ineligibility to receive a University-administered scholarship or fellowship when the sanction is in place for longer than one semester.

Dismissal: Separation of the student from the University for an indefinite period of time. Readmission to the University may be possible in the future, but no specific time for a decision is established.

Educational Requirements: A provision to complete a specific educational requirement directly related to the violation committed. The provision will be clearly defined. Such educational requirements may include, but are not limited to, completion of an alcohol education workshop, a diversity awareness workshop, essays, reports, etc.

Expulsion: Permanent separation of the student from the University whereby the student is not eligible for readmission to this university.

Grade penalty: A penalty grade may be a reduced score or grade for the assignment or a reduced grade for the course.

Honor Code Probation: An official notice that the student’s academic conduct is in violation of TAMIU Student Rules, but is not sufficiently serious to warrant expulsion, dismissal or suspension. A student on Honor Code probation is deemed “not in good standing” with the University.  This sanction includes the following restrictions:

  1. Ineligibility to hold an office in any student organization recognized by the University or to hold any elected or appointed position within the University;
  2. Ineligibility to compete in intercollegiate athletic activity;
  3. Ineligibility to represent the University in any capacity, including representing the University at any official function;
  4. Ineligibility to receive a University-administered scholarship or fellowship when the sanction is in place for longer than one semester.

Interim University or Housing Suspension: In certain circumstances, the Vice President for Student Success, or a designee, may impose an interim University or housing suspension prior to the hearing. Interim suspension may be imposed only to:

  1. Ensure the safety and well-being of members of the University community or preservation of University property,
  2. Ensure the student’s own physical or emotional safety and well-being, or
  3. Ensure the safety and well-being of University students and personnel, if the student poses a definite threat of disruption of or interference with the normal operations of the University.

During the interim suspension, students shall be denied access to the University residential facilities and/or to the campus (including classes) and/or all other University activities or privileges for which the student might otherwise be eligible, as the Vice President for Student Success, or designee, may determine to be appropriate.

Letter of Enrollment Block: A letter stating that the student may not reenter Texas A&M International University without prior approval through the Office of Student Conduct and Community Engagement or Vice President for Student Success if enrollment has been blocked for a previous student conduct problem or for medical reasons.

Letter of Reprimand: A letter that makes a matter of record any incident that reflects unfavorably on the student or the university.

Loss of Campus Housing Privilege: Removal from University housing for disciplinary reasons.

Loss of Parking Privileges on Campus: Revocation of campus vehicle registration, and forfeiture of permit and all refund rights to said permit.

Restitution: A payment for financial injury to an innocent party in cases involving theft, destruction of property or deception. The assessed costs to be paid may be in addition to receipt of any of the above sanctions.

Restrictions: The withdrawal of specified privileges for a definite period of time, but without the additional stipulations contained in the imposition of conduct probation. The restrictions involved will be clearly defined.

Suspension: Separation of the student from the University for a definite period of time. The student is not guaranteed readmission at the end of such period of time, but is guaranteed a review of the case and a decision regarding eligibility for readmission.

Warning: Admonition of a student for actions unbecoming to the University community.
