Mental Health Difficulties

The college may administratively take nondisciplinary action affecting, on a temporary basis, a student's attendance after instances of disruptive or other behavior that the college reasonably believes may be caused by mental health issues.

Such actions must be approved by the vice president for Student Affairs or the associate vice president for Student Affairs, and shall generally first allow but not require the student an opportunity for submission of information by the student, the student's health care provider, or both and, in the judgment of the college, if it so desires, an independent medical evaluation selected by the college.

Possible temporary actions include placement on leave of absence, with return conditioned on medical evaluation and report (student's treatment professional or an independent professional).
