Policy Regarding Return to Campus After Emergency Medical Evaluation/Treatment

Any student who has needed emergency medical evaluation and/or treatment, or who has been transported from the campus by emergency medical personnel, must follow specific procedures to return to campus. The College will determine your appropriateness to return to the academic and/or residential environments, including planning for needed follow-up care, arranging for the completion of missed academic work, and assuring the safety and well-being of the whole campus community.

I. Psychological/psychiatric incident, including alcohol or other drug-related incident:  

A.  Before noon of the first business day following your return to campus, you must contact the following two offices to arrange immediate appointments:

1. The Counseling Center at (914) 251-6390 (information will also be requested from the attending physician in the emergency room/hospital)

2. The Office of Community Engagement at (914) 251-6320 if you live on campus

II. Traumatic injury, accident, or illness:

A. Before noon of the first business day following your return to campus, you must contact the following two offices to arrange immediate appointments:

2. The Office of Community Engagement at (914) 251-6320 if you live on campus

On the basis of the information provided during the above appointments, an administrative determination will be made about your ability to remain in school, and any special conditions on your continued attendance (i.e., part-time study only, residential status).
