A student’s right are governed by three constitutional rules

  1. They are notified about the policies, procedures, rules or regulations of the institution.
  2. The student is informed they will be accused of a violation of university policy.
  3. The student will have the opportunity to respond to the accusation brought against the student.

By law we may make allowances for more Due Process, but we are prohibited by law to grant less Due Process than the U.S. Constitution and judicial precedent has established.

Due Process:

  • Written Notice
  • View Evidence
  • Impartial hearing body (fair and reasonable defense)
  • Advocate
  • Innocent unless found “more than likely than not” in violation of policy
  • The accused student will receive the hearing decision in writing within 3-7 business days of the judicial hearing.
  • The accused student may plead not responsible and appeal any judicial decision.

Medical Amnesty

New College of Florida seeks to ensure that students at medical risk as a result of alcohol or substance use will receive prompt and appropriate medical attention. For this reason, no student seeking medical attention for him/herself or for another will receive punitive sanctions in regards to a violation of this Regulation.
