a. Interim Suspension

In situations of potential code violations where there is reasonable cause to believe a student's alleged behavior or action and/or continued presence at the institution poses a clear and present danger to the health, safety, or general welfare of individuals, the campus community, or continuance of normal NYIT functions, the dean of students (or designee) will temporarily restrict a student from specific NYIT facilities including, but not limited to, residence halls, buildings, and classrooms or temporarily suspend the student from NYIT for an interim period of time pending disciplinary proceedings. Such situations may involve emergency, medical, mental, or some other chronic matter, including but not limited to physical assault, harassment and/or bullying, sexual assault or misconduct, hazing, possession of firearms, explosives, weapons, felony drug possession, and other acts of a similar nature that threaten or have the potential to threaten the health and/or safety of individuals and/or the property of NYIT. The dean of students (or designee) may require specific evaluations to take place. Outside evaluations are conducted at the expense of the student.

b. Emergency Suspension

In situations not necessarily involving potential code violations, but where there is reasonable cause to believe a student's alleged behavior or action and/or continued presence at the institution poses a clear and present danger to the health, safety, or general welfare of individuals, the campus community, continuance of NYIT functions, or NYIT property, the dean of students (or designee) will temporarily restrict a student from specific NYIT facilities including residence halls, buildings, and classrooms or temporarily suspend the student from NYIT for an interim period of time pending an evaluation of that student's well-being by an outside licensed practitioner and/or the Office of Campus Life. The dean of students (or designee) may require specific evaluations to take place. Outside evaluations are conducted at the expense of the student.

A student under interim or emergency suspension is not allowed on any NYIT campus or property without express permission of the dean of students (or designee). In addition, the student may not contact any other student, staff, faculty or administrator with the exception of the dean of students (or designee) without prior permission. In cases of interim suspension, the student is entitled to a student conduct hearing as set forth in this code, but not an informational meeting, unless approved by the dean of students (or designee).
