2017-18 Academic Catalog

Disciplinary Suspension and Expulsion

The following information will be recorded on a student’s academic record:

1. Permanent Expulsion – a “W” grade will be recorded on the permanent record for each course on the student’s schedule at the time of expulsion. “Permanent Expulsion” and the effective date will also be placed on the permanent record. This will remain on the permanent record indefinitely or until an appeal is held by the Dean of Students and the expulsion is approved for removal. In a case of appeal and approval by the Dean of Students to remove the expulsion, the words “Permanent Expulsion” will be replaced by the word “Withdrew.”
2. Disciplinary Suspension – a “W” grade will be recorded on the permanent record for each course on the student’s schedule at the time of suspension. “Disciplinary Suspension” and the effective date will also be recorded on the permanent record. Students may petition the Dean of Students to have “Disciplinary Suspension” removed from the permanent record. If the Dean of Students approves the request, the words “Disciplinary Suspension” will be replaced by the word “Withdrew.”
3. Credits earned at another institution while on disciplinary suspension or dismissal may never be transferred or posted to the Mississippi State University record.
