Suspension is an action taken by the college under extraordinary circumstances, e.g., cases of plagiarism or cheating. Serious breaches of professional conduct by students in the BFA, MusB, MFA, and MM programs may result in suspension or expulsion as well. For additional information, please refer to Academic and Professional Integrity and the annual Student Handbook (www.purchase.edu/studenthandbook).
A student may be suspended for one semester or more and is considered to be “not in good academic standing” during the suspension period. At the end of the suspension period, the student may return to matriculated status at the college without formal readmission.
