Faculty Responsibilities to Students on Interim Suspension

A student on interim suspension retains their his/her status as a student and, as such, may attempt to complete coursework while banned from College property and from participating in any College-sponsored events or activities. The Dean of Students, who manages the interim suspension process, will inform the student that they he/she may contact their his/her faculty by Ramapo College e-mail or by other means that do not require a physical presence on campus. A faculty member who receives a request from a student on interim suspension to submit coursework should consider the following:

  • course policies
  • course schedule
  • course material
  • planned learning experiences

The faculty member is not required to amend the syllabus or any other aspect of the course in order to accommodate the student’s request and may deny the student’s request altogether. If, based on the criteria above, a faculty member chooses to accommodate the student’s request, they he/she should communicate that decision to the student by Ramapo College e-mail. That This communication should indicate the coursework to be completed, the deadline, and the means by which the student should submit the coursework. In no case should the student be permitted to return to campus or off-site locations affiliated with the College to submit coursework while on interim suspension.

A student on interim suspension will likely be absent from one or more class sessions. The faculty member may follow the attendance policy as outlined in the course syllabus and apply the attendance policy consistently to all students. In cases when a student may be absent from class for a more prolonged period of time, the Dean of Students will notify the faculty member.
