Disruptive students

Under the Student Conduct Code WAC 478-120-020(5) an instructor has the authority to exclude a student from any class session in which that student is being disruptive. If the student persists in the behavior please contact the dean of the college or school and report the matter immediately. CSSC & Student Life are available to consult with you about these kinds of cases. We recommend that you be clear and concise in your instructions to the student and don’t hesitate to confront behavior which is disruptive to the academic process.

Academic misconduct

Each College or School has the right to establish it’s own procedure regarding how it may go about addressing academic misconduct. There are many models available on campus. CSSC is available to consult regarding the process. Additionally CSSC requests copies of final outcome letters for all disciplinary matters handled by colleges and schools. See the links on the right side of the page for additional information.
