Below is an explanation of sanctions for various student code of conduct violations. This list of sanctions is not all encompassing and sanctions are assigned at the discretion of the judicial coordinator.
A warning is a formal reprimand that is meant to serve as a warning that the student will be subject to more severe sanctions, if the student violates College regulations again. Offenses which could warrant a warning (Depending of the case these violations could warrant a different sanction):
Probation is an official warning that the student’s continued enrollment depends upon the maintenance of satisfactory citizenship during the period of probation. A favorable recommendation to outsiders normally will not be furnished during the period of probation.
When probation is imposed as a sanction, the student should be advised of the consequences of violation of the probation. In the event probation terms or conditions are violated, the Dean of Students will impose the consequences of the probation violation.
Offenses which could warrant probation (Depending of the case these violations could warrant a different sanction):
Removal is a permanent or temporary termination of the student’s privilege to live in the New College Residence Halls. In cases where the student currently resides on campus, the student will be given reasonable time to vacate the residence halls (e.g. 24-48 hours).

In response to the COVID-19 update on policies and procedures it is our hope to have a positive dialogue when working with our residential students. Our goal is to ensure a healthy environment whenever possible. As a result when reports are submitted, or we wish to discuss a situation regarding policies and procedures we will follow this philosophy for communication:
