Evaluation by the Center for Health, Wellness and Personal Counseling

If the Vice President of Student Affairs and the Dean of Student Life & Conduct (or designee) reasonably believes that the student meets one or more of the conditions set forth above, the student will be referred to the Center for Health, Wellness and Personal Counseling for an evaluation by an appropriate mental health provider. It is the student’s responsibility to contact the Center for Health, Wellness and Personal Counseling and schedule the appointment for the evaluation. The evaluation may take place over several sessions and could include a mental health assessment. If such a determination must be at a time when one of the above named individuals is unavailable, the other may make such determination alone.

In conducting the assessment, the evaluator will take the following into consideration:

(1) the nature, duration, and severity of the risk of harm;

(2) the probability that the risky behavior will actually occur; and

(3) whether reasonable accommodations requested by the student can be provided by the College to reduce the risk of harm.

Once the evaluation is complete, the Dean of Student Support Services (or designee) will submit a written recommendation to the Vice President of Student Affairs and the Dean of Student Life & Conduct (or designee).

Please be advised that any refusal to submit to, or participate in, the above evaluation procedure will be considered by the Center for Health, Wellness and Personal Counseling in completing its evaluation and preparing its written recommendation to the Vice President of Student Affairs and the Dean of Student Life & Judicial Affairs (or designee).
