Students and student organizations of Hocking College accept the responsibility to abide by all Hocking College policies. Proven failure to meet these obligations will justify appropriate disciplinary sanctions. Disciplinary sanctions are defined as follows:

  • Verbal Warning - A verbal reprimand which expresses college dissatisfaction with the students conduct and which clarifies expected behavior in the future. Such a warning is noted in the students conduct file.
  • Disciplinary Warning - A written reprimand which expresses college dissatisfaction with the students conduct and which clarifies expected behavior in the future.
  • Disciplinary Probation - Written notification that any further violations within the probationary period shall result in more severe disciplinary action.
