  5. Dismissal: Termination of student status for an indefinite period. The conditions of re-admission, if any, will be stated in the offer of dismissal.
  6. Interim Suspension: If in the opinion of the Dean of Student Success, the presence of a student poses a serious threat of harm to person or property, the Dean of Student Success may immediately suspend the student.

Suspended Student Restriction: No student who has been suspended for disciplinary reasons from the college will be permitted on the campus of the college during the suspension period without prior written approval of the Dean of Student Success. In addition, any student who wishes to transfer to Southwest but is under a misconduct penalty from another institution will not be considered for admission until 1 term after the penalty expires.
