In the event that the University receives information indicating that a student may be a danger to themselves or others the University reserves the right to refer the student for a personal or behavioral evaluation.
A student may be referred to a personal evaluation if the information indicates that they are or may be a risk to themselves. Personal evaluations may be completed at the University Counseling Center or elsewhere with a licensed mental health care provider of the student’s choice.
A student may be referred to a behavioral evaluation if the information indicates that they are or may be a risk to themselves and/or others. Behavioral evaluations are not available at the University Counseling Center, so they must be completed elsewhere with a licensed mental health care provider of the student’s choice.
Evaluations are considered complete once the provider has informed the referring office that the student has met all of the provider’s recommendations. Failure to complete a referral in a timely manner may result in a student conduct process and/or the student being prohibited from registering. If a student has already pre-registered and fails to complete the referral in a timely manner, the student’s classes may be canceled.
The student is responsible for all costs incurred in the completion of an evaluation. The referral may be made prior to or in lieu of a student conduct process.
A student may elect to proceed to a student conduct process instead of completing a personal or behavioral evaluation. The student may receive a similar referral as a sanction through the student conduct process if the student is found in violation of the Code.
