51. Disciplinary Action (Revised: 2004)
The decision as to which procedure to utilize for a grievance filed by a student shall be made solely by the university and shall be based on the fact pattern of each particular case. Each grievance shall be directed to a specific procedure and shall be accorded only one opportunity to be adjudicated unless the appeal body remands for further review.
Rules regarding the University Discipline Code and related actions are listed in Part II, Student Life Rules section.
51.1 A student who has been assessed a disciplinary sanction of expulsion, dismissal, suspension or deferred suspension from the university by the Office of Student Life or the Office of the Commandant may file an appeal with the Director of Student Life. Following the notification of intent to appeal and pending the hearing, the disciplinary action taken by the university shall be stayed unless the Assistant Vice President for Student Affairs and Auxiliary Services or the President and CEO for Texas A&M University at Galveston has determined in a case involving suspension, dismissal or expulsion that the continued presence on campus of the charged student poses a continuing danger to persons or property or an ongoing threat of disrupting the academic process.
51.2 A student who has been assessed a disciplinary action other than those listed above may file an appeal within five working days of the delivery of that decision with the Director of Student Life or the Commandant, dependent upon which office imposed the sanction. The appeal will be heard administratively by the appropriate official or panel.
