					DEAN OF STUDENTS MESSAGE
Welcome to the 2010 – 2011 academic year. Whether a new
traditional student, a returning student, a transfer student, or a Veteran,
I hope this year will be exciting and rewarding for you. My goal, and
that of the Student Affairs team, is to provide you with a wide array of
extra-curricular opportunities and a supportive environment while you
work on completing your academic degree. These are exciting times as
you develop professionally, intellectually and socially. This process
will take a team effort from the campus staff, faculty and YOU.
Please take time to familiarize yourself this Student Planner. It outlines
your rights and responsibilities as a member of the Embry-Riddle
Prescott campus community. It is each student’s responsibility to
know the basic Standards of Conduct. They are identified to help
ensure a safe and supportive campus for all to pursue their educational
goals. The calendar provides scheduled campus activities, and may
serve as a critical time management tool to help you structure your
campus life. Also included are:
              an ―A to Z‖ guide to the campus
              campus phone numbers and hours of operation,
              where to find assistance and locate emergency call boxes
              in the event of a problem,
              your rights and responsibilities,
              explanation of the student conduct process, and
              Housing information.
I hope your involvement with campus programs during this academic
year becomes part of a life-long learning experience that will
accompany you into your professional life and as an alumnus of
Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. The Student Affairs team is
proud of the variety of co-curricular opportunities, programs and
services to compliment your maturation process while seeking your
degree. I strongly encourage you to participate in our co-curricular
offerings to develop relationships that may enhance your opportunities
for vocational assistance in the future, to meet students of similar
interests and build friendships, and to enrich your physical, spiritual,
social, emotional and vocational growth.
Good luck, keep up with your academic responsibilities, become
involved in campus life and enjoy your collegiate experience.
Sincerely,



Larry K. Stephan
Dean of Students

~ Meal Plan Fees
Students often ask what they are charged per meal, if they receive
refunds or credit for missed meals, or if they may transfer them to their
dining dollars to a guest or to another student.
Much of the answer lies in understanding how meal plan charges are
calculated. Meal plans and fees are developed based on average use.
These calculations take into account that not all students eat all the
meals offered in a contract plan. By comparing the number of people
enrolled in each plan, with our past experience of participation rates,
management can predict across the semester and the year an average
number of meals per plan. Each student on a meal plan actually pays
for an average number of meals per week. The cost per meal is lower
than a walk-in, pay-as-you-go program because with planning, there
are cost savings in purchasing, labor allocation and in reduced waste.
There is no real loss to the student due to missed meals because they
have already been calculated into the package. Essentially, a student
who eats all the meals for which they contract actually pays less per
meal.
~ Meal Plan Specifications
All Access Plans:
        7-day w/$100 dining dollars
        5-day Soaring Eagle w/$200 dining dollars
        5-day w/$50 dining dollars.

Block Plans (do not contain dining dollars):
        175 meals
        125 meals
        75 meals
        50 meals
Participants in the Block Plans may host a guest/student for a meal as
often as they want using one meal every time.
Access to the Dining Hall, 35 North or Outtakes to purchase meals or
food/snacks/drinks requires presenting your Eagle card to be run
through a card reader. The card reader acknowledges your meal
plan/dining dollars. There is most often a dining services staff member
available to assist with checking the Eagle cards; however, there are
times when students will run their cards without being monitored to
maintain a faster-flowing food line.
Important Note: IN ALL CASES, the student who is contracted for the
meal plan MUST BE PRESENT to sponsor their guest(s)’ or
student/friend(s’) meal. There is no provision for students to give out or
lend their cards to other students in order to access the Dining Hall.
There should be no confusion. Students must understand that loaning

                                   10
their card to another could potentially lead to charges of fraud or theft
of services.

Grievance Process
Students who may have a personal grievance are first encouraged to
address their issue with the appropriate staff/faculty member with
responsibility concerning the issue. If no agreement is reached, they
should put their grievance in writing and forward it to the appropriate
department head or director with supervisory responsibility for their
area of concern.
Students may contact the Dean of Students Office to gain advice and
specific direction in seeking resolution to the grievance. Advocacy
services are available to enrolled students. When appropriate, the Dean
of Students offers formal mediation services for dispute resolution.
Mediation may take place in lieu of a Student Conduct Code
proceeding, but requires commitment from all disputing parties that the
process and outcome are formal and will result in a binding contract.
When the student remains dissatisfied with the outcome of his/her
grievance, a final written appeal may be made to the appropriate
college dean (or the dean’s designee) for academic issues and to the
Dean of Students (or designee) for non-academic related issues. See

expected to demonstrate a high level of personal responsibility and
maturity. Personal honesty and integrity are fundamental elements of
responsible citizenship and an intrinsic part of the basic character
required for productive careers in aviation, aerospace, the military and
in global affairs.
Applicable policies and procedures may be modified or updated from

Administrative Leave Operating Procedures
The Dean of Students may require a student to take a leave-of-absence
for a specified period of time, if, in the judgment of the dean, the
student (a) poses a threat to the lives or safety of himself/herself or
other members of the ERAU community, or (b) has a medical or
psychological problem which cannot be properly treated in the ERAU
setting, or (c) has a medical condition or behavior that seriously
interferes with the student’s ability to function and/or seriously
interferes with the educational pursuits of other members of the ERAU
community.


                                   22
In making the decision to require a student to take an administrative
leave, the Dean of Students acts out of concern for the student and his
or her wellbeing, concern for other students and concern for the
campus as a whole. The dean considers whether the University is able
to provide the level of care and guidance needed, whether there is a
likelihood that the student will pose a threat to himself/herself or others
and/or to what extent the student seriously interferes with the rights of
others in the community to carry on their educational pursuits.
Readmission Requirements for Administrative Leave
If a student must leave ERAU for medical/psychological reasons, he or
she must take sufficient time away to adequately address the issues that
necessitated the leave. During the absence, the University expects the
student to undergo professional health care treatment as the primary
method of resolving the problem. Failure to seek ongoing treatment of
a kind appropriate to the health problems will raise serious doubt as to
the student’s readiness to resume student status, and in such cases the
University may withhold admission until such time that appropriate
treatment has been received.
A student on administrative leave, who wishes to return, must initiate a
request for readmission by writing a letter to the Dean of Students
detailing what has been accomplished during the absence. The
student’s letter, a supporting letter from a healthcare professional (e.g.,
physician, psychiatrist or psychologist) are the basis upon which the
dean makes the judgment that the health circumstances causing the
student to leave have been adequately addressed and that there is
reasonable assurance that the student will be able to resume his or her
studies. The letter from the health care professional should answer, as
a minimum, the following questions:
What were the reasons for the student seeking treatment?
How often was the student treated?
What progress was made?
Is the student able to handle the intellectual, physical and personal
demands of being a full-time student at ERAU?
Are there any special conditions under which the student should be
readmitted?
The information presented is reviewed by appropriate health care
professionals at ERAU and by the Dean of Students to determine the
student’s readiness to return. Additionally, the student must give the
attending healthcare professional written authorization to speak with
the Dean of Students or the Dean’s designee.
When a student is permitted to return special conditions or
requirements may be outlined at the time; and upon return, the student

                                    23
is expected to meet periodically with the Dean or the Dean’s designee.
Similarly, during the first term back, it is advisable for the student to
establish a professional relationship with a member of the Wellness
Center and/or Counseling Center. If a student fails to be a responsible
member of the University community, suspension may result.
Requests for readmission must be submitted to the Dean of Students at
least sixty (60) days prior to the term for which readmission is
requested. All information involved in this Administrative Leave of
absence will be held confidential on a need-to-know basis.
Advocacy for Students
Counseling staff located in the Wellness Center will work with students
as advocates to the University when needed. Advocacy will take the
form of providing a safe, confidential environment to discuss options
for action when students are faced with difficult situations. Staff will
discuss opportunities for students to resolve personal issues and will
direct students to resources that can assist in resolution. If you have
questions or would like to request the assistance of an advocate, please
contact Counseling Services at 928-777-6653.
Alcohol Policy
Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University Prescott Campus recognizes
that alcohol may have a negative impact on the quality of students'
lives. Alcohol is not permitted on University property or at University
events without the expressed written consent from the University.
Alcohol is allowed in the private residences of full time employees
who reside on campus and is permitted in identified nontraditional
residence halls in the Thumb Butte Complex. The Department of
Student Life reserves the right to approve or deny alcohol at events on
campus sponsored by student organizations. Guidelines for Use of
Alcoholic Beverages for Student Organizations can be obtained from
the Department of Student Life located in the Jack R. Hunt Student
Union.
- Bottle to Throttle – Flight Operations
The University substance abuse policy extends to students who violate
residence hall alcohol policies and to those whose behavior on campus
attracts the attention of University officials when they have engaged in
the use of alcohol off campus. The policy also extends to students who
violate local and state laws off campus and where they don’t live on
campus, particularly if they are arrested for driving under the influence
(DUI) of alcohol or illegal drugs. It is therefore, the policy of the
Flight Training Department to take the following action when any
Flight student, regardless of where they live, is arrested for a DUI
offense:
Upon acquittal by the court or acceptance of a plea to a lesser offense,
the student may be returned to active status in the flight program.

                                   24
If the court convicts the student of the DUI, the student may be
dismissed permanently from the University’s flight education program.
If a student is returned to active flight status after a DUI conviction and
is arrested for a subsequent alcohol-related traffic event or is convicted
of another DUI, the student shall be removed permanently from the
Flight Education and Aeronautical Science degree programs. The
Chairman of the Flight Training Department may recommend the
student’s dismissal from the University through the Student Conduct
Review process.
         No person shall act as a crew member of an ERAU aircraft
         under the following conditions:

         Flight Training Department Chairman;
         Any association or use of narcotic drugs, marijuana,
         depressant or stimulant drugs or any illegal substance as
         defined in Federal or State statute is strictly forbidden and will

         Any ERAU pilot found operating an aircraft in violation of the
         above will be subject to dismissal from the University with
         possible further action conducted by the FAA for violation of
         FAR’s (Ref. 14 CFR Part 91.17, 91.19).
         Any violation of the University alcohol policies will result in

- Alcohol – Highlights of Arizona's Administrative
Suspension Law
In the state of Arizona, Law Enforcement Officers are authorized to
immediately take the driver license of a motorist suspected of drinking
and driving. The police have the right to take the license immediately if
the driver's blood-alcohol level is 0.08 percent or above, or if the driver
refuses to take a breath or blood test. The following are the highlights
of Arizona's administrative suspension law:




                                    31
Implied Consent is defined as when you apply for and accept the
privilege of driving a vehicle in Arizona and you consent to testing for
blood alcohol content (BAC) if you are arrested for drunk driving.
When a Law Enforcement Officer has reason to believe you have been
driving while under the influence of alcohol (DUI), the officer will
request that you submit to testing. If you refuse, the Motor Vehicle
Division (MVD) will suspend your license for one year. You may still
be charged with driving under the influence even without a blood
alcohol content test. It is unlawful to drive a vehicle if you have a
blood alcohol content of .08 or higher. If your test results exceed the
legal limit, the MVD will suspend your license for ninety days. Under
the existing law, the arresting officer will take your license on the spot.
Campus Emergencies
Embry-Riddle Prescott has a campus emergency plan that can be found
online via ERNIE https://ernie.erau.edu/. Go to the Safety/Risk
Management link on the left → Environmental Health and Safety →
Emergency Preparedness.
- Broadcasting Sirens
Our emergency notification system contains sirens that also function as
a public address system.
- Code RED System
Code RED is one layer of our emergency notification system. Code
RED allows the University to do mass calling, providing valuable
information to all who have registered. Embry-Riddle strongly
recommends all students, faculty and staff register for Code RED. To
register log into ERNIE, https://ernie.erau.edu/ and go under the
―Admin Services‖ box, or go to Safety/Risk Management →
Environmental Health and Safety → Emergency Preparedness → Code
RED link on the right of the screen.
Campus Expression
Freedom of expression and assembly are rights of all citizens, residents
and sojourners in the United States of America. Embry-Riddle expects
each member of our campus community to have an abiding interest in
the University's well-being and reputation.          In most instances,
judgment, discretion and mutual respect are sufficient guides for
action. We ask students to remember that although the United States
Constitution guarantees the freedom of expression and assembly and,
by judicial interpretation, campus groups have the right to official
institutional recognition, these are not absolute rights. Only registered
student organizations and University departments and committees are
authorized to use University facilities and property for group activities
and events. The University, however, reserves the right to regulate the

                                    32
time, place and manner in which expression and assembly may take
place. In all instances, the freedom of expression and assembly on
campus must be balanced with consideration for the health and safety
of all members of the University community. As specified, guaranteed
Constitutional rights are balanced against the importance of preserving
the "general welfare." So too must the right of free expression and
assembly on a private University campus must be balanced by concern
for the well-being and the sensibilities of the members of the
University community.

Diversity at ERAU
The objective of the educational program at Embry-Riddle Aeronautic-
al University is to develop individuals capable of applying enlightened
judgment in their professional, personal and social lives. In order to
promote this objective, it is the policy of the University to prohibit
discrimination as it is defined in the federal and state statutory and
decisional law, against individuals because of race, sex, religion, color,
national origin, age, sexual orientation, non-disqualifying handicap or
veteran status in all aspects of University life. Any individual or group
found responsible for a violation of the above policy will be subject to
action through the student conduct process.

Drug Testing
- Mandatory Drug Testing Policy
The mandatory Student Drug Testing Program applies to all students
who are engaged in flight training at Embry-Riddle. Embry-Riddle
Aeronautical University may test for drugs, alcohol and any other
substance that may compromise safety.
The University will provide the following types of drug testing:
        Random testing of students engaged in flight training.
        Post-Accident testing will be required for any student
        involved in a University aircraft accident. The student will be
        tested for drugs within 24 hours after the accident. An
        accident is an occurrence associated with the operation of an
        aircraft which takes place between the time any person boards
        the aircraft with the intention of flight and the time all such
        persons(s) have disembarked, and in which any person suffers
        death or serious injury, or in which the aircraft received
        substantial damage as determined by the National
        Transportation Safety Board.
        Any student may be required to submit to drug testing in
        conjunction with a student conduct matter. Students will
        follow the guidelines established in the Student Handbook.


                                   33
         Pre-employment testing will be required for any student who
         applies to work in a safety-sensitive student assistant position
         here at the University. Action will be taken for positive test
         results, refusal to be tested or failure to comply with testing
         procedures.
         Students, whose test results show positive for the use of an
         illegal or non-prescribed drug, as verified by a Medical
         Review Officer, may be suspended from the University.
         Negative-dilute test results will be grounds for an immediate
         retest.
         Refusal to be tested when requested by the University may
         result in the student being suspended from the University.
- Drug Testing Procedures
When testing is required, the student will comply with all directives of
the University concerning the place of testing, the manner in which the
student is to arrive at the place of testing and any other related matter.
Failure to comply will result in the student being subject to disciplinary
action up to and including suspension from the University. For
additional information concerning the Student Drug Testing Program,
contact the Flight Department and/or the Human Resources
Department. If the student is required to complete a drug test in
conjunction with a student conduct matter, the student will not have to
pay for the drug test.
- Student Notification of Drug Testing
Students are notified of the drug testing requirement in the application
process through the Admissions Office. In addition, during their
official orientation, all matriculating students are given a copy of the
student handbook, which includes a section pertaining to the
University's Substance Abuse and Mandatory Drug Testing policies.
The drug testing policy is also included on appropriate flight course
registration forms.
- Use of Drug Testing Results Within the Student
Conduct Process
The University reserves the right to use the results of any drug tests in
the Student Conduct process. The results may come from campus
constituents; (i.e. Athletics, ROTC, Flight Line) or off-campus
constituents; (i.e. law enforcement agencies).
- Medical Marijuana
Arizona voters recently approved the Arizona Medical Marijuana Act
(Proposition 203), which, under certain circumstances, authorizes the
possession and use of marijuana for medical purposes by people with
debilitating medical conditions who obtain a written certification from

                                   34
a physician. Notwithstanding the passage of Proposition 203, because
of the university’s obligations under federal law, marijuana, including
medical marijuana, will continue to be banned on campus.
Additionally, campus health care providers, in accordance with federal
law as well as university policies and regulations, will not prescribe
medical marijuana.
Under Federal legislation entitled The Drug Free Workplace Act of
1988, and The Drug Free Schools and Communities Act of 1989, ―no
institution of higher education shall be eligible to receive funds or any
other form of financial assistance under any federal program, including
participation in any federally funded or guaranteed student loan
program, unless it has adopted and has implemented a program to
prevent the use of illicit drugs and abuse of alcohol by students and
employees.‖ Federal law entitled The Controlled Substances Act,
prohibits the use, manufacture, distribution, dispensing, or possession
of marijuana; it also classifies marijuana as a controlled substance and
makes no exception for medical use. Proposition 203 does not change
the fact that marijuana remains illegal under federal law; the university
will therefore continue to enforce its current policies prohibiting the
unlawful manufacture, distribution, dispensation, possession or use of a
controlled substance, including medical marijuana, on its property or as
part of any of its activities.
In summary, despite popular misconception, Proposition 203 only
made possession and use of medical marijuana legal under Arizona
law. It did not generally legalize marijuana possession and use.
Marijuana remains a controlled substance under federal law and
possession and use of marijuana remains illegal under federal law,
regardless of whether a person has a prescription or is otherwise
complying with Proposition 203. In order to remain eligible to receive
federal grant funding and participate in federally funded student
financial aid, the university must require that students, faculty, and
staff do not unlawfully possess or use marijuana on campus or as part
of any of its activities. As a result, the possession or use of marijuana
on campus, even in accordance with the exceptions granted by
Proposition 203, is a violation of federal law and the university's
current policies and regulations. Employees and students who violate
these policies will continue to be subject to disciplinary action.
Harassment Policy
Harassment is defined as any willful, intentional or persistent act,
which harms or annoys another individual. It is the persistence of an
act or the repetition of such which constitutes harassment. Harassment
may take a variety of forms from subtle to blatant, but any action which
is carried out on a continuous or systematic basis with the express
purpose of annoying, persecuting or otherwise disturbing an individual

                                   35
or group may be considered harassment. Harassment is not acceptable
within the University community and is subject to student conduct
action. Any such action should be reported to the Dean of Students
Office in Building 18A.
Counseling Services will provide support and advocacy for victims of
sexual harassment. If you feel that you are being sexually harassed you
can discuss options for reporting in a confidential, secure environment
with a personal counselor. Counselors (or designees) can be requested
to serve as "advocates" for the victim throughout the process, to
include accompanying the victim while making reports. To use the
advocacy services described here, call Counseling Services at 928-777-
6653.
Hazing Policy
Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University prohibits any form of hazing.
Hazing is defined as any action taken or situation created intentionally
by an individual, club, or organization, whether on or off campus, to
produce mental or physical discomfort, embarrassment, harassment or
ridicule; and the act was committed in connection with an initiation
into, an affiliation with or the maintenance of membership in an
organization. Such activities may include but are not limited to the
following: use of alcohol, paddling in any form, creation of excessive
fatigue, physical or psychological shocks, quests, treasure hunts,
scavenger hunts, road trips or any other such activities carried out on or
off campus, wearing of public apparel which is conspicuous and not
normally in good taste, engaging in public stunts or buffoonery,
morally degrading or humiliating games or activities, and any other
activities which are not consistent with academic achievement,
University policy, local, state or federal law.
Internet Use
The sharing of resources always requires conscious attention to fairness
and appropriate usage. Accordingly, the University wishes all students
to understand and adhere to the following four guidelines with regard
to use of campus computing resources:
Illegal use of computing resources is not permissible. All software
must be legally licensed to protect the rights of others and ensure
privacy.
University resources must be accessible to all. Where we can provide
technical means to enforce fairness, we will (disk quotas, for example).
Where enforcement is not possible, remember to be reasonable. In the
residence halls, each room is equipped with connectivity to the
Internet. This connectivity is referred to as the Residential Network
(ResNET). The ResNET bandwidth is shared by all residents.
Downloading large quantities of data over extended periods of time,
affects traffic on the network. Use common-sense and, if in doubt, ask

                                   36
the University IT Support Center at 928-777- 6990. Do not attempt to
gain access or privileges for which you are not entitled.
Do not alter or modify your University Colleague ID or Account ID.
These accounts will be used throughout your tenure at Embry-Riddle
Aeronautical University.
Finally, do not use University resources for commercial purposes
without prior authorization.
The campus Information Technology Helpdesk at extension 6990 is
available to provide guidance on questions or issues not covered here.
If, in the judgment of the University, you use our computer resources
inappropriately, sanctions will be imposed.
Computer labs and library users must be sensitive to the public and
academic nature of the facilities and take care not to display any sound,
message or image that is offensive or harassing to other users. Users
must also refrain from transmitting to or from other computing sites,
inappropriate sounds, messages or images that might be considered
offensive or harassing. Embry-Riddle policies on harassment apply
equally to the behavior of the electronic community as they do to the
other campus environments.
Life-Threatening Illnesses
Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University recognizes that students and
employees with life-threatening illnesses may want to engage in as
many of their normal pursuits as their conditions allow, including work
and regular class attendance. The University is sensitive to the needs of
these students and employees and supports equitable treatment for all.
Each case will be handled confidentially and on an individual basis, as
the University is made aware of such cases. Confidentiality and
privacy of persons with serious illnesses is required by state and federal
law. The University does not discriminate against individuals with
physical disabilities or life threatening illnesses in employment,
enrollment, the administration of programs, activities, access to
facilities, or any of the rights, benefits and privileges generally afforded
its students and employees.
It is the policy of the University to enroll students and employ
applicants who have or who are suspected of having such diseases as
long as: 1) such persons remain physically and mentally able to meet
the reasonable performance standards in class or in the residence halls,
and 2) medical evidence indicates that their educational or job-related
activities do not pose a threat to their own safety or that of others in the
campus community. Consistent with its concern for students and
employees with life-threatening illness, the University strongly
encourages such students and employees to utilize the following
services offered through the University:
Wellness Center – 928-777-6653

                                    37
Disability Support Services (students only) – 928-777-6653
Human Resources (employees only) – 928-777-3710
Nondiscrimination Policy
The objective of the educational program at Embry-Riddle
Aeronautical University is to develop individuals capable of applying
enlightened judgment in their professional, personal and social lives.
In order to promote this objective it is the policy of the University to
prohibit discrimination as it is defined in the federal and state statutory
and decisional law, against individuals because of race, sex, religion,
color, national origin, age, sexual orientation, non-disqualifying
handicap or veteran status in all aspects of University life. This
includes but is not limited to conversations that may or may not be
overheard by a member of the Embry-Riddle community or guest. Any
individual or group found responsible for a violation of the
Nondiscrimination Policy will be subject to student conduct action
through the Student Conduct Process.
Notification of Rights under FERPA
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) grants
students certain rights with respect to their education records. These
include:
The right to inspect and review the student's education records within
45 days of the day the University receives a written request for access.
Students should submit to the Registrar, deans of colleges, Dean of
Students or other appropriate official, written requests that identify the
records they wish to inspect. The University official will arrange for
access and notify the student of the time and place where the records
may be inspected. If the records are not maintained by the University,
the official to whom the request was submitted, shall advise the student
of the correct individual or location where their records may be
obtained.
The right to request the amendment of the student’s education records
believed to be inaccurate or misleading. Students may ask the
University to amend a record that they believe is inaccurate or
misleading. They should write to the University official responsible for
the record, clearly identify the part of the record they want changed,
and specify why it is inaccurate or misleading. If the University decides
not to amend the record as requested by the student, the University will
notify the student of the decision and advise the student of his or her
right to a hearing regarding the request for amendment. Additional
information regarding the hearing procedures will be provided to the
student at the time hearing notification is given.
The right to consent to disclosures of personally identifiable
information contained in the student's education records, except to the
extent that FERPA authorizes disclosure without consent. One

                                    38
exception which permits disclosure without consent is disclosure to
school officials with legitimate educational interests. A school official
is a person employed by the University in an administrative,
supervisory, academic, research or support staff position (including law
enforcement, unit personnel and health staff); a person or company
with whom the University has contracted (such as an attorney, auditor,
or collection agent); a person serving on the Board of Trustees; or a
student serving on an official committee, such as a disciplinary or
grievance committee, or assisting another school official in performing
his or her tasks. A school official has a legitimate educational interest
if the official needs to review an education record in order to fulfill his
or her professional responsibility. Upon request, the University may
disclose education records without consent to officials of another
school in which a student seeks or intends to enroll.
You have the right to file a complaint with the U.S. Department of
Education concerning alleged failures to comply with the requirements
of FERPA. The address of the Family Policy Compliance Office that
administers FERPA is:
                Family Policy Compliance Office
                U.S. Department of Education
                400 Maryland Avenue, SW
                Washington, DC 20202-4605

You have the right of access to your official records in accordance with
the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), also known
as the Buckley Amendment. This act provides that the University may
release "directory information" unless you have informed the Records
and Registration Office that you do not want this information released.
For information regarding Directory Information please see page 41
"Student Records and Information". Other information, including
grades, financial, flight, and discipline records are considered
confidential, and may only be released with the signed permission of
the student. This means that this information will not be sent to or
discussed with the parents without the student's written permission.
If the student is proven to be a dependent of the parent, as defined by
the IRS, information may be released to the parent without the student's
consent. In accordance with this statute, Embry-Riddle reserves the
right to disclose to parents and legal guardians of students under the
age of 21, without the student's consent, information regarding the
student's violation of any federal, state, or local law, or any rule or
policy of the institution governing the use or possession of alcohol or a
prescription or non-prescription drug.
Pet Policy


                                    39
Pets are not permitted inside University facilities. Pets must be leashed
and attended at all times while on campus. Pets found unattended will
be impounded and the owner assessed a fine. Owners are responsible
for any damage their pet may cause to University property, as well as
for cleaning up after their pets. Exceptions to this are service animals
assisting students or guests with documented needs and private
residence of full-time University employees residing on campus.
Protecting the Campus Environment
Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University reserves the right to consider a
student’s or applicant’s character, academic and behavioral record,
criminal record, or other pertinent information in granting or denying
housing or admission, making related assignments or schedules; or
imposing reasonable, appropriately-tailored requirements to protect the
campus environment. Unless specifically exempted from disclosure by
law or order of the court, students and applicants have an affirmative
duty to immediately disclose any criminal convictions or charges
against them for violent offenses, offenses against minors, and/or
offenses that are punishable as a felony.
The presence on campus of students or applicants who commit serious
violations of University rules, regulations and procedures, or have
unacceptable character, academic or behavioral record, or criminal
record may be inconsistent with the safety and other compelling
interests of the University. Accordingly, the University may, at the
University’s sole discretion, temporarily or permanently bar from all or
any part of University-owned or controlled property, or impose
reasonable conditions upon any student or applicant who violates
University rules, regulations and procedures, or whose character,
academic or behavioral record, or criminal record is determined by the
University to pose an unreasonable risk to the interests of the
University, its students, employees or visitors. Action based on
conduct shall not normally be taken against admitted students until the
student has been afforded process consistent with applicable ERAU
policies and procedures.        However, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical
University reserves the right to take immediate action to protect the
health or safety of people or property.
Sexual Assault ~ Defined
Sexual assault is defined as intentionally or knowingly engaging in
sexual contact, sexual intercourse or oral sexual contact with a person
without consent of said person. Consent cannot be given or considered
valid if a person is impaired, intoxicated, drugged, under-age, mentally
challenged, unconscious or asleep.
It is also considered sexual assault if a person is forced into sexual
contact, intercourse or oral sexual contact through manipulation, verbal


                                   40
or physical coercion, threats, physical restraint and/or physical
violence.


Sexual Assault Information
It is the policy of Embry-Riddle that no student or employee may
threaten the health and safety of a member of the University
community, any person on University property, or at a University
sponsored or supervised activity, through the commission of sexual
assault, including acquaintance rape. The University provides ongoing
educational programs that are designed to promote awareness of sexual
offenses. Informational brochures and videos are available through the
Counseling Center, and special presentations are conducted by the
Student Life Department.
Sexual assault is unacceptable and will not be tolerated at Embry-
Riddle. The University urges an individual who has been sexually
assaulted to make an official report with a member of the Sexual
Assault Response Team (S.A.R.T.) and a Campus Safety Officer. A
report of sexual assault will be dealt with promptly. Confidentiality
will be maintained to the greatest extent possible.
The University has established an official policy and procedure
wherein consideration and rights to be afforded all campus community
members who are victims of sexual assault include:
The right to have all sexual assaults against them treated with
seriousness; and the right, as victims, to be treated with dignity.
The right to have sexual assaults committed against them investigated
and adjudicated by the duly constituted criminal and civil authorities of
the government entity in which the crimes occurred; and the right to the
full and prompt cooperation and assistance of campus personnel in
notifying the proper authorities;
the right to be free from pressure that would suggest that the victim;
(i) not report crimes committed against them to civil and criminal
authorities or to campus law enforcement and disciplinary officials, or
(ii) report crimes as lesser offenses than the victim perceives them to
be.
the right to be free from suggestions that sexual assault victims not
report, or under-report, crimes because victims are somehow
―responsible‖ for the commission of crimes against them; that victims
were contributory, negligent, or assumed the risk of being assaulted; or
by reporting crimes they would incur unwanted personal publicity;
the right to the full and prompt cooperation from campus personnel in
responding to the incident, and

                                   41
the right to access counseling services established by the University or
other victim-service entities.
Consideration and additional rights will be afforded to campus
community members who are victims of sexual assaults that occur on
University property. After a sexual assault on campus has been
reported, the victim of such crimes may:
require that campus personnel take the necessary steps or actions
reasonably feasible to prevent unwanted contact or proximity with
alleged assailants; and
be informed of the student conduct proceedings as well as the outcome
of such proceedings; and
the same right to assistance, or ability to have others present, which is
afforded to the accused during any campus student conduct proceeding.
In addition to any criminal or civil actions, which may be pending or in
process, the University reserves the right to pursue separate student
conduct action. Persons found responsible for sexual assault may
expect disciplinary action up to and including dismissal from the
University.
When responding to a victim of sexual assault a number of University
personnel are available, if desired, to assist victims of sexual assault as
soon as there is knowledge of an incident.

Student Health Insurance Policy
Embry-Riddle offers a Student Injury and Sickness Insurance Plan that
offers basic benefits at a reduced cost for all Embry-Riddle students.
The insurance plan is underwritten by UnitedHealthcare Student
Resources, and is in effect from August – August of the respective

                                   45
school year. This insurance provides continuous coverage, anywhere in
the United States and while traveling abroad. This plan is renewable on
an annual basis.
Embry-Riddle requires all students to participate in the Student Injury
and Sickness Insurance Plan, unless proof of comparable insurance
coverage is provided. All students will be automatically enrolled in the
University’s student health insurance plan. Students who have
comparable coverage must complete the online Waiver form to
remove the premium from their student account. Students with limited
insurance coverage are urged to carefully review their options before
waiving the University’s plan. HMO plans outside the Prescott area
may not qualify as comparable health insurance.
The Waiver form is located in WebAdvisor (where web registration is
located). To locate site: In ERNIE, under Student Resources, click
on Insurance Waivers.
If you are a new student, ―log in to WebAdvisor and select Applicant.
If you are a returning student, select ―Student‖. Then, click on
Insurance Waivers under the Financial Information banner.
International students and ERLI students cannot complete the on-line
waiver; they will have to contact the Center for International
Programming Services (CIPS) 928-777-3774 with their insurance
information. Failure to waive the insurance by the semester deadline
will result in the non-refundable insurance fee remaining on your
student account. Embry-Riddle is not responsible for insurance waivers
that are submitted after the deadlines.
For a full description of coverage including costs, benefits, exclusions,
reductions and limitations, and the terms under which the coverage
may remain in force, please go to the UnitedHealthcare Student
Resources website www.uhcsr.com (click on ―Find My School’s Plan‖

Substance Abuse Policy
Due to our cooperative relationship with the aviation and aerospace
industry, the University intends to be clear in its position regarding the
use, possession, and/or sale of illicit drugs, and towards those who have
knowledge of violations of any federal, state and local laws.
The University prohibits the unlawful manufacture, distribution,
possession, sale and use of illegal drugs, designer and synthetic drugs,
prohibited drugs and drug-related paraphernalia on University property
and/or while attending a business or academic activity, a student
organization/athletic activity or trip, while on duty or while operating a
vehicle or machine leased or owned by the University. Any person

                                   46
using, possessing or selling illegal drugs on or off the University
premises may expect to face University Student Conduct action.
Knowledge of or being in the presence of the manufacture, use,
possession or sale of illegal drugs, designer and synthetic drugs,
prohibited drugs and drug-related paraphernalia constitutes equal
responsibility and involvement in the incident.
The University will take serious action regarding the abuse of legal
substances or the illegal sale of legal substances. The University
intends to comply with the Drug Free Workplace Act of 1988, the Drug
Free Schools and Communities Act amendments of 1989, the
Department of Transportation regulations and all Federal Aviation
Administration regulations regarding drug and alcohol abuse. Students
who enroll at the University should plan to adopt a healthy (substance
free) lifestyle. The purpose of these policies is to clearly communicate
the concern of the University regarding the health and safety of its
employees and students, the desire for an efficient and effective work
force and educational environment; and compliance with all federal,
state and local regulations regarding substance abuse in the workplace.
The University has a responsibility to educate and promote healthy,
low risk choices within our student population and to support similar
policies within the aviation and aerospace industry.

Student Education and Assistance for Substance
Abuse
Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University promotes substance abuse
awareness by sponsoring educational programs and distributing
literature on the subject. The University is additionally committed to
assisting students in the resolution of problems associated with
substance abuse, and encourages students to seek additional help
through referrals from the Wellness Center and/or Counseling,
928-777-6653, Hass Commons Building 73.

Tobacco Policy
Embry-Riddle recognizes that tobacco use has a negative impact on
students' health and lives.
Because smoking is hazardous to your health we endeavor to protect
our students, faculty and staff from second-hand smoke. Therefore,
smoking may only take place outside of University buildings at least 25
feet from doors and windows, including residence halls. Smoking must
occur in designated areas, which are marked by tobacco disposal
receptacles. Other areas on campus may be designated and marked as
"smoke free zones" because of their proximity to windows or
ventilation systems. Smoking shall be defined as the burning of any
tobacco product whether in the form of cigarettes, cigars or pipes.
Additionally, smoking is not allowed in any University vehicles


                                  47
including vans, trucks, buses, and automobiles, as well as University
aircraft.
Receptacles are provided throughout the campus so smokers do not
have to litter. If you are a smoker please watch for them. Any student
who violates this policy shall be courteously reminded that smoking is
allowed only in designated areas. Those who continue to violate or
disregard the policy are subject to student conduct action.
Trespass Notice Policy
Occasionally there are circumstances that result in a student not being
allowed on campus. Some of these instances are in conjunction with
Student Conduct sanctions implemented when a student has been
charged with violating a University policy. Interim suspensions,
suspensions and dismissals all include Trespass Orders when they are
activated. Students who are on interim suspension, are suspended or
dismissed, must notify Campus Safety and receive permission to
conduct business on campus prior to said business. Failure to gain
permission may result in an arrest. Campus Safety reserves the right to
contact local law enforcement agencies and have a Trespass Order
issued when a students’ behavior has been excessively disruptive
and/or repeated attempts to learn the identity of any person on campus
has been unsuccessful. Additionally, all students are responsible for
the behavior of their guests. Non-ERAU visitors may be asked to leave
campus and may be denied access to University property. The student
host(s) may be charged with policy violations as a result of the
behavior of their guest(s).




                                  48
Student Responsibilities
The University is governed by policies and procedures designed to
protect the interests of our students and to provide a high quality
educational experience. It is the responsibility of students to be
informed of all policies and procedures required for continued
attendance at the University. Furthermore, as a responsible member of
the Embry-Riddle community, students, faculty and staff should adhere
to all policies, and help hold each other accountable as well.
Students should have access to their University ID (Eagle) cards at all
times and must show them if/when their identification is requested by a
University official.
Official contact with students is made through University e-mail and
campus mailboxes. Students are expected to check these means of
communication daily; failure to do so could lead to violations of the
Standards of Conduct.
Standards of Conduct
1. Abuse/Threats/Harassment - This includes but is not limited
   to physical, verbal, visual, or written acts.
   A. Verbal or physical abuse, including fighting, threats,
        intimidation, harassment, coercion, and/or other conduct or
        action that threatens the health and safety of a member of the
        University community, or oneself, or any other person on or
        off University property, or at a University-sponsored or
        supervised activity. Students who are thought to be a threat to
        themselves or other members of the University, or who are
        experiencing serious medical/psychological issues that cannot
        be sufficiently handled by Embry-Riddle personnel, are
        subject to Administrative Leave of Absence from the
        University.
   B. Falsely reporting the presence of an unlawful explosive or
        incendiary device with the intent to mislead, deceive or
        disrupt the operation of the University or a scheduled event
        that is sponsored by the University.
2. Alcohol/Drugs
    A. ILLEGAL DRUGS AND OTHER SUBSTANCES:
       Students engaged in activities, on or off campus, that involve
       having knowledge of or being in the presence of the
       manufacture, use, possession or sale of illegal drugs and
       substances, or unauthorized prescription drugs, synthetic and
       designer drugs (including but not limited to Spice, K-2, and
       Salvia), materials to create an illegal drug, drug paraphernalia
       or other paraphernalia used to facilitate illegal use of a legal
       substance, stimulants, hallucinogens, or other similar non-
                                  49
       prescribed agents known to be harmful or habit forming drugs
       or chemicals (such as those used in huffing), and attempting
       to manufacture or sell counterfeit drugs may be found in
       violation of the ERAU Standards of Conduct. Having
       knowledge of the above or being present when a violation
       occurs may constitute equal responsibility and involvement in
       the incident.
    B. FLIGHT IMPLICATIONS: Any involvement with non-
       prescribed substance such as outlined above is considered
       dangerous and strictly forbidden by the Federal Aviation
       Administration (FAA). Any such involvement on or off
       campus is, therefore, strictly prohibited by Embry-Riddle.
       Students charged with violating this policy will go before a
       Student Conduct Officer and are likely to be suspended from
       the University if found responsible. Students testing positive
       for illegal, synthetic or designer drug use will be restricted
       from utilizing University aircraft.
    C. ALCOHOL: Students engaged in activities, on or off
       campus, involving the illegal use or misuse of alcohol may be
       found in violation of the ERAU Standards of Conduct.
       Possession of alcohol on University property (exclusive of
       exempted locations or preapproved events) is a violation of
       the Standards of Conduct. Being under the influence of
       alcohol may be viewed as use. Having knowledge of, or
       being present when an alcohol violation occurs, may
       constitute equal responsibility and involvement in the
       incident.
    D. MOVING VIOLATION: Students engaging in operating a
       motor vehicle, on or off campus, while impaired in any way,
       may be found in violation of the Standards of Conduct.
3. Criminal Acts
    A. Any act of arson, falsely reporting a fire or other emergency;
       falsely setting off fire alarms; tampering with fire alarms or
       fire extinguishers, hoses or other emergency equipment, or
       removing equipment from its intended location, except when
       used for emergency purposes.

Student Organization Student Conduct Guidelines
All student organizations must adhere to the same policies and
procedures that individual students are expected to follow. In the case
of a violation by a student organization, the Director of Student Life, or
designee, will conduct the investigation and serve as the student
conduct officer. If the Hazing Policy is violated, the Director of
Student Life will conduct the investigation and the Dean of Students, or
designee, will serve as the student conduct officer. The student

                                   54
organization's president or most senior officer will serve as the primary
contact for the organization. The student organization has the right to
appeal a decision involving student conduct action. A request for an
appeal must be submitted in writing to the advisor to the Student
Affairs Student Conduct Appeal Board. The Dean of Students office in
Building 18A has contact information for the advisor.
The student organization will then be notified of the time and location
of the appeal and a pre-appeal meeting should be scheduled by the
student organization with the advisor.
Student Organizations Conduct Process for Hazing
Violations
In case of violation of the hazing policy, the Dean of Students will
initiate the investigation. The Director of Student Life or their designee
will investigate student organizations, the Dean of Students or their
designee will investigate athletic teams, and a University student
conduct officer will investigate other hazing incidents. The Dean of
Students or their designee will determine whether a violation occurred,
and if so, determine the sanctions. The group responsible for hazing
will have a right to appeal the decision of the Dean of Students or their
designee. The Hazing Student Conduct Board will hear the appeal and
make recommendations to supervisor of the Hearing Officer. The board
is comprised of one student justice and two faculty/staff justices
recruited from the Student Affairs Student Conduct Appeal Board.
Student Conduct Process
Corrective and educational actions by the University may be required if
a student violates the Standards of Conduct or if his/her actions may
endanger the property or well being of individuals (including oneself)
or organizations. The philosophy of the University is that student
conduct and disciplinary actions should be handled so as to educate and
reorient students and effect a change in behavior while protecting the
community and mitigating the effects of the violations of University
policies and procedures.
Student conduct proceedings in the University community are
administrative rather than criminal in nature. The authority of the
University to hold students accountable for violations of University
policies and procedures differs from the power of civil authority to deal
with violations of criminal law.
Student conduct proceedings have a somewhat different scope and
purpose. The overarching goal of the student conduct process is to
educate students on how their behavior might impact themselves, their
communities and their future.
Student Rights in the Student Conduct Process
Embry-Riddle adheres to the rights of all of our students when
addressing student conduct procedures. As a part of Student Rights and
                                   55
Responsibilities, students who are accused of violating the Standards of
Conduct shall be entitled to a hearing by a student conduct officer.
Student conduct officers adjudicate violations of the Standards of
Conduct. Decisions of responsible, not responsible, or insufficient
evidence are based on the facts of the incident and the student’s
meeting with the student conduct officer. The student conduct officer
uses a ―more likely than not‖ threshold for determining if a student is
responsible for violating the Standards of Conduct.
The University Student Conduct process must ensure fair and impartial
decisions. Embry-Riddle complies by adhering to the concept of
fundamental fairness, in which students are provided the following
rights throughout the Student Conduct process:
         To be considered not responsible for any violation(s) until
         responsibility is established.
         To receive a Notice of Hearing, the charges, and time and
         place when the hearing will be held.
         To understand the specific portion of the Standards of
         Conduct that the student has allegedly violated.
         To be informed of all presented evidence.
         To be accompanied by an advocate of the student’s own
         choosing. Advocates must be members of the campus
         community and are not permitted to speak or participate
         directly in any hearing
         To be presented with an explanation of the alleged violation
         including witnesses and evidence.
         To be informed of the decision of the Student Conduct Officer
         regarding the violation and sanction.
         An opportunity to appeal the decision of the Student Conduct
         Officer.
         Appeals must be requested within two business days of the
         decision letter and are available through the Advisor to the
         Student Affairs Student Conduct Appeal Board (the Dean of
         Student’s office will have contact information).
Failure of a student to respond to reasonable requests for a student
conduct hearing may result in the hearing being held without the
student present. Any decision(s) made shall be based on the evidence
present at the hearing; students will not be found responsible for
violation(s) simply because they do not attend the hearing.
Reporting requirements for the Clery Act and the Campus Sex Crimes
Prevention Act can be found on the Safety and Security page of the
campus website at http://www.erau.edu/pr/safety/index.html
The University reserves the right to pursue disciplinary action if a
student violates a policy, rule or regulation and withdraws from the
University before administrative action is taken. Additionally, the

                                  56
University reserves the right to pursue judicial action for off-campus
behavior of a criminal nature that has a negative effect on the
University, or if at any time the well-being of the campus and its
members or guests is at risk.
For additional information on Students Rights and Responsibilities
contact the Dean of Students Office in Building 18.


Student Conduct Sanctions
Sanctions in the Student Conduct process are educational in nature; not
punitive. The purpose of sanctions is to promote student reflection on
past decisions and to evoke a behavioral change in future decisions. It
is important to note: More than one of the sanctions may be imposed
for any single violation when deemed appropriate.
All student conduct sanctions are noted in the Dean of Students office,
or other designated office, which becomes part of the student’s overall
educational file. The level of the sanction is determined by the severity
of the violation and any past student conduct issues.

Student conduct sanctions, which may be imposed for violations of the
Standards of Conduct policy include, but are not limited to, the
following:

Loss of Privileges   Denial of specific privileges for a specific period,
                     withdrawal from class or a change in sections.

Restitution          Compensation for loss, damage or injury. This
                     may take the form of appropriate service and/or
                     monetary or material replacement.

Discretionary        Work assignments, community restitution service,
Sanctions            service to the University, research reports,
                     counseling, drug testing, fines, etc., as long as
                     deemed appropriate within the educational
                     mission of Student Conduct.
Levels of Sanctions
Level 1: Official Note to File
A formal note is placed in the student's University educational file.
This sanction level consists of minor violation(s) of the Standards of
Conduct, of conduct reflecting an unintentional breach of the Standards
of Conduct, or inappropriate conduct that has limited impact on the
community safety, personal integrity or honor.
Level 2: Reprimand


                                   57
Sanction signifying a more serious level of conduct. This sanction
level consists of minor violation(s) of the Standards of Conduct, of
conduct reflecting a breach of discipline or inappropriate conduct that
has a noticeable impact on the community, safety, personal integrity or
honor.
Level 3: Warning
This sanction level consists of violation(s) of the Standards of Conduct,
of conduct reflecting an intentional breach of discipline or
inappropriate conduct that has a significant impact on the community,
safety, personal integrity or honor. This is the highest level of sanction
before the student’s relationship with the University is in jeopardy.
Level 4: University Student Conduct Probation
Probation for a specified period of time. Students on student conduct
probation must meet with the Dean of Students or his designee prior to
registering for classes. If probation is completed without further
violations of the Standards of Conduct, the probationary status may be
lifted.
Level 5: University Student Conduct Probation
Probation is imposed for the remainder of a student’s enrollment at
Embry-Riddle. The student must demonstrate acceptable behavior in
order to continue enrollment at Embry-Riddle. Guidelines for a
student's behavior may be included as conditions of the probation.
If a violation of the Standards of Conduct is committed during a
probationary period, action may be instituted which results in
suspension or dismissal. Students on student conduct probation must
meet with the Dean of Students or designee prior to registering for
classes.
Level 6: University Discipline Suspension
Suspension is the involuntary separation of the student from the
University for a specified period. Students who face legal proceedings
may also face student conduct action by the University immediately or
may be suspended from the University until culmination of the legal
proceedings. If suspended as the result of legal proceedings, all
University involvement, academic, social and financial, may remain
status quo until legal proceedings have been concluded. Students who
are suspended must apply for readmission to the University.
Readmission after suspension may have additional requirements that
would have been outlined at the time the student was suspended.
Level 7: University Dismissal
Dismissal is the involuntary and permanent separation of the student
from the University.
Corrective and Educational Actions of the University

                                   58
Corrective and educational actions by the University may be required if
a student violates the Standards of Conduct or if his/her actions may
endanger the property or well being of individuals (including oneself)
or organizations. The philosophy of the University is that student
conduct and disciplinary actions should be handled to educate and
reorient students and effect a change in behavior, while protecting the
community and mitigating the affects of the violations of University
policies and procedures.
Student conduct proceedings in the University community are
administrative rather than criminal in nature. The authority of the
University to hold students accountable for violations of University
policies and procedures differs from the power of civil authority to deal
with violations of criminal law.
Student conduct proceedings have a somewhat different scope and
purpose. The overarching goal of the student conduct process is to
educate students on how their behavior might impact themselves, their
communities and their future.
Student Conduct Appeals
The opportunity to appeal the decision of a student conduct officer is a
fundamental right of Embry-Riddle students. Applications for all
appeals must be requested within two business days of the decision
letter and are available through the advisor to the Student Affairs
Student Conduct Appeal Board. All rights of the accused remain intact
for all appeals. The Dean of Students Office will have contact
information for the advisor. The decision of the appellate review by the
University administrator is final, unless new substantive evidence is
presented.
Sanction 1-3 Appeals
Students appealing cases where a Sanction Level 1-3 was imposed will
adjudicate their appeal through a University administrator rather than
the Student Affairs Student Conduct Appeal Board. A member of the
Student Affairs Student Conduct Appeal Board will facilitate the
appeal meeting and the supervisor of the University student conduct
officer that made the original decision will hear the appeal.
Sanction 4-7 Appeals
Students appealing cases where a Sanction Level 4-7 is imposed have
the option to adjudicate their appeal through a University administrator
or the Student Affairs Student Conduct Appeal Board who makes a
recommendation to a University administrator who is responsible for
making the final decision. The University administrator who hears the
appeal is the supervisor of the student conduct officer that made the
original decision.
If the student complaint cannot be resolved after exhausting the
institution's grievance procedure, the student may file a complaint with

                                   59
the Arizona State Board for Private Postsecondary Education. The
student must contact the State Board for further details.
The Arizona State Board address is:

        Website: http://azppse.state.az.us
Student Affairs Student Conduct Appeal Board
Most student conduct actions are adjudicated by a University Student
Conduct officer. The Dean of Students may request the assistance and
recommendation from the Student Affairs Student Conduct Appeal

Welcome from the Student Life Department
All of us at Student Life would like to welcome you to Embry-Riddle
and your new home. Becoming a member of this unique community
will be an opportunity for you to excel academically and develop the
skills needed to succeed after college. The Housing and Residence Life
section of the handbook contains information that is intended to be
useful for you. It is important that you read and know the information
in this guidebook as you are responsible for understanding and
adhering to our policies and procedures.
Our residence halls are more than a place to sleep and hang out. Our
halls are a place to develop friendships, become involved in decision-
making, take on leadership roles, plan and participate in activities, take
responsibility for yourself and your community and just have fun. The
advantages to be gained from living on campus are many. It has been
proven in numerous studies that students who live in University
housing earn higher GPAs, are better connected to the University, will
make better use of University services (i.e., tutors, library, and
campuswide student activities) and are more pleased with their total
college experience. Students who live in housing are more likely to
graduate in four years (as opposed to being on the five- to six-year
plan) (Astin, A. W., 1997, Student Involvement: A Developmental
Theory for Higher Education, In College Student Affairs
Administration. Pearson Custom Publishing: Boston.)
Getting Involved: the Student Life staffs, your Residence Hall
Association (RHA), Board of Campus Activities (BCA) and other
organizations have planned many events and activities for your
enjoyment and success here at Embry-Riddle. Please talk to your
Resident Assistant or check the University calendar for more
information about these events and ways to get involved. Activities
such as hall events and competitions will offer more opportunity for
involvement and community development. It is only through your
interaction with each other that the residence halls can truly become
great places to live.
We realize that you will have many questions regarding residence hall
living at Embry-Riddle and we are here to assist you. If you have any
further questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Student Life
staff. It is our hope that this academic year is a rewarding and
challenging experience for you.
Our best to you in the coming year!
Your Student Life Staff

Mission
The Student Life Department is dedicated to serving the students of
Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University by providing a safe and positive
living/learning environment that enhances student learning.
We accomplish this mission and that of the University by applying
these principles in our residential facilities: Provide a safe and secure
living environment for all students
         Work with our students to create a community that enhances
         academic success and personal growth
         Plan an array of programs and activities that foster community
         and student interaction
         Provide quality service and well-maintained facilities
         Operate as a fiscally responsible department
         Work in conjunction with other departments to support the
         University mission
Respect for Individualism and Diversity
The Student Life Department would like all students to understand the
expectations concerning the behavior of each member of the residential
community. As an adult you are responsible for your own actions.
You are expected to take responsibility for your own awareness of and
education on sexism, racism, heterosexism and other forms of
oppression. Intolerance within the campus communities is
unacceptable.
No person has the right to degrade another human being on the basis of
gender, sexual orientation, race, physical capabilities, national origin,
religious affiliation, or any other differences whether apparent or not.
Written or verbal abuse (including e-mail, voice mail and instant
messaging), harassment, threats, physical assault, intimidation, and
other forms of violence against any member or group within your
community will not be tolerated. We do not accept substance abuse,
alcohol use, or peer pressure as an excuse for intimidation, harassment,
abuse, or violence; nor should you. Ignorance or saying, “it was just a
gag” is NOT justification for such behavior. Such behavior may result
in student conduct action. Misconduct should immediately be brought
to the attention of the Student Life staff.
Student Life Staff
There are many individuals committed to working with you as you
develop and grow through your college experience and also as you and
your fellow students learn to develop the community in which you are
a part of. The Student Life Department staff includes a Director,
Associate Director, Assistant Director, Coordinator, Area Coordinators
(ACs), Resident Assistants (RAs) front desk workers (J.R. Hunt
Student Union and the Chair of the Student Organization Committee

                                   62
(SOC). These individuals have specific responsibilities to assist in
your college experience and that your needs are met. Listed below are
our staff position descriptions and functions.
Staff
Director of Student Life
The Director of Student Life is responsible for oversight of department
operation and direction. Responsibilities include budget management,
direct supervision of the staff, and less directly, the Resident
Assistants, front desk workers and SOC. The Director of Student Life
works closely with other departments on campus and reports to the
Dean of Students.
Associate Director of Student Life
The Associate Director is responsible for management of the Jack R.
Hunt Student Union, leadership programs, entertainment and all
student organizations.
Assistant Director of Student Life
The Assistant Director works administratively with the Greek
community, supervises the Area Coordinators, oversees staff training
and development and provides support to the Resident Assistants.
Coordinator of Student Life
The Coordinator assists the Director of Student Life in managing and
coordinating overall operations to include but not limited to budget,
billings, and management of summer conferences, front desk
operations and statistical analysis.
Area Coordinator(s) of Student Life
Area Coordinators (ACs) are full-time professional staff who reside in
the residence halls and supervise the Resident Assistants. Each AC
oversees a group of residence halls and works to develop a supportive
academic community. Among other duties, ACs are on-call on a
rotating schedule, assist with community development, meet with
students regarding concerns, and relay pertinent information back to
the administration. Contact your AC if you have any concerns or
questions about your residence hall experience.
Resident Assistants
Resident Assistants (RAs) are student leaders whose role is to build
community and assist residents living in the halls. The RAs work to
create an environment in which all residents feel involved and
connected to the campus and their community. This environment is
created through programming, role modeling, communication, and
personal interaction. All RAs have lived on campus for at least one
semester, and have undergone extensive training to help them in their
roles as student leaders.

                                  63
Housing Policies and Procedures
The policies and procedures governing the residence halls are designed
to help maintain a safe, clean, and comfortable environment for all
residents, and to ensure that the residence halls provide a positive
living environment that enhances student learning. The ultimate
responsibility for achieving this goal, however, lies with the residents.
Each student who lives on campus is expected to respect the rights of
the other individuals living in their community, the building and
surrounding grounds in which he/she lives, as well as the rights of the
other individuals living in the community.
Four compelling community interests are the basis for our residence
hall policies. Residence hall policies help to:
          Promote a legitimate educational purpose (quiet hours, first-
          year live-on requirement).
          Ensure that a healthy and safe environment is maintained - fire
          safety and Health and Safety Inspections (HSIs).
          Prevent serious disruption to the educational living
          environment (alcohol policy, guest policy, courtesy hours).
          Mitigate property loss and damage (no pranks, secured
          entrances, furniture guidelines).
In addition to the Housing policies outlined below, all students are
expected to adhere to the University’s Standards of Conduct (found
within the Students Rights and Responsibilities section of the planner).
Below are Housing policies regarding conduct within the residence
halls.
Abandoned Items
Items found in public areas (including public hallways and laundry
rooms) that cannot be traced to the owner will be considered
abandoned and will be held by a Student Life official or Campus
Safety.
All unclaimed abandoned items will be held for a period of thirty (30)
days. At the end of the thirty (30) day period, unclaimed items will
become the property of the University. Exceptions include perishable
items which will be disposed of immediately and bicycles which will
be held only fourteen (14) days prior to disposal.
Any property left in a room after checkout or at the end of the student’s
contract for that term will be considered abandoned if the student has
not contacted Student Life to claim it within a two business days of
their departure from that room.
All items left in community kitchens (including in refrigerators) at the
end of each semester will be considered abandoned if the student has
not contacted Housing to claim it within a two business days of their
departure from that room.


                                   64
Unclaimed items may be disposed of in one or more of the following
manners:
        Conversion to University use
        Donated to a social service or other community organization
        Sold at auction by the University
        Destruction or disposal
Abandoned Bicycles
At the end of the spring semester, Campus Safety will tag all bikes on
campus. After spring closing of the residence halls, all bikes must be
removed from the housing area. Bikes that are left by a student will be
impounded and held for fourteen (14) days. The University will not be
responsible for any chains or locks that need to be cut to remove the
bike. After fourteen (14) days, the University will dispose of all bikes
that are not claimed by their owner. A student attending Summer A or
B is required to get a special permit from the Safety Office prior to
May 1. Bikes without the special permit will be considered abandoned
and removed. Abandoned bikes increase the chances of bikes being
stolen or vandalized on campus. Abandoned bikes also take up
valuable space that others could use to lock up their bikes. If you have
any questions, please contact Student Life or the Safety Office.
Cable Television & Data Ports
Basic cable television is provided. One cable jack is installed in each
bedroom and each lounge/living room in addition to two data ports per
bedroom. Splicing/splitting of this cable line or tampering with the
data ports is prohibited. Students may contact local cable companies to
request additional cable services. Any additional cable services are
contracted by the student with the cable company. Student Life is not
responsible for any issues or concerns over additional cable services.
Check-In & Check-Out Information
Checking In
Whenever students check into housing at the beginning of the semester
or change rooms during the semester, they are given a Room Condition
Report (RCR). It is the responsibility of each resident to confirm the
RA’s evaluation of the room and common areas and to make
changes/additions to the RCR as necessary. These notes will be
compared to the condition of the room upon checkout and any damages
beyond normal wear and tear or extra cleaning will be noted and
charged to the student’s account. Upon completion, the form should be
given to the RA on their floor. The RA must receive the RCR no later
than twenty-four hours after checking/moving in.
Checking Out
Whenever students move out of their room, they are expected to
contact an RA or Student Life staff member who will inspect the room

                                  65
and common spaces and complete the check-out portion of the RCR.
Students are expected to schedule a check- out time with their RA at
least 24 hours in advance of the desired check- out day. Upon
completion of this form, both the student and the staff member
checking the student out will sign the RCR. The student may request a
copy of the report. Students who fail to follow these checkout
guidelines may be subject to an improper checkout fine.
A formal room checkout is necessary for any of the following: moving
out at the end of the semester/year; leaving the University; room
changes; any other circumstance requiring the student to move out of
the room. All rooms must be cleared of belongings and thoroughly
cleaned (trash out, floors vacuumed/ mopped, appliances cleaned)
before their checkout occurs. Charges for lack of cleanliness and
damage do not occur until after the official date of the halls closing or
after checkout. Damages or cleaning concerns discovered after
checkout may be charged to the student’s account.
Express Checkout
Express Checkout is an option only available at the end of the
semester. Express Checkout enables students to put their key in an
envelope and turn it in to a Student Life official as their checkout. This
is not the preferred method of checkout; however, it is an option. It is
important to note that students who do express checkouts are very
limited in their ability to dispute any charges.
Cleaning
Each resident is equally responsible for cleaning their bedroom,
bathroom and common spaces. Cleaning services are not provided
within suites or apartment units. Residents may check out a vacuum
cleaner from their RA using their Eagle card as collateral, but all other
cleaning supplies are the responsibility of the residents.
Health and Safety Inspections (HSIs) are conducted regularly to ensure
that rooms are maintained in a clean and sanitary condition. All
residents are expected to keep their spaces clean. See ―Health and
Safety Inspections‖ for more information.
It is recommended that each room/suite/apt have a bucket, scrub brush,
and appropriate cleaning materials/soaps. Use only non-abrasives
cleaning soaps such as soft scrub or oxy-clean types. It is highly
recommended that showers, sinks, and toilets be well scrubbed weekly
if not bi-weekly.
Contract Release
All contracts are for the entire contract period (i.e. Fall and Spring
semester or Summer). Any release from the contract must meet the
criteria stated in the contract. Release from the housing contract will

                                   66
be considered ONLY under the following conditions (see back of
contract):
         Dismissal or suspension from the University
         Withdrawal from the University
         Graduation
         Marriage during contract term
         Medical conditions which prevent the student from living in
         the residence facilities, and which cannot be accommodated
         by the Department of Student Life, and are confirmed in
         writing from Embry-Riddle Wellness Center
         Severe and documented financial hardship confirmed in
         writing by Embry-Riddle Financial Aid Office
         Internship and or Study Abroad in conjunction with Embry-
         Riddle Aeronautical University
         Other reasons as approved by the Director of Student Life
A student must submit a written letter or e-mail to the Director of
Student Life for any release request. Contractual release is only upon
written approval from the Director of Student Life, or her designee. An
$800 administrative fee will be assessed and charged to the student’s
account for all contract releases. All housing refunds are based on the
refund policy stated in the University Catalog and/or prorated based on
number of days.
Courtesy Hours
Being courteous to your fellow residents is an important part of a good
community. Close living conditions and the effects of noise travelling
through the building necessitate the establishment of some rules to
contain noise. Courtesy hours are in effect twenty-four (24) hours per
day, seven (7) days a week out of respect for the educational living
environment of others. Within and near the residence halls, stereos
(including car audio), and televisions should always be set at a
reasonable volume to avoid disrupting others and voices should be kept
at a reasonable level.
Damages
Residents are reminded that financial liability for damages lies with the
residents in the bedroom, suite, apartment or building. Repeated
damages have a direct impact on housing rates if no responsible party
is found or comes forward. If damages occur in an apartment, suite or
the common areas of a building and no individual takes responsibility,
the Department of Student Life will divide the charges among the
occupants and bill their student accounts. This includes, but is not
limited to, common entryways, hallways, lounges, kitchens and the
immediate exterior/grounds (including littering and cigarette butts). If


                                   67
damage occurs in a suite or an apartment, the residents of the
suite/apartment will be held responsible.
If damage occurs, please report it to your RA or to the Department of
Student Life as soon as possible. A work order will be submitted to
repair the damage and the responsible parties will be subject to
appropriate charges.
Residents are not authorized to perform any type of repair to damages
themselves. Repairing damages yourself, especially to furniture or
walls, may result in higher costs to you, your roommate or suitemates
as it will most likely have to be done over in order to meet institutional
specifications.
Decorating
Students are encouraged to decorate their rooms as they wish and
within reason. Nails, hooks or anything that will put a hole in the wall,
peel the paint off or leave marks are prohibited. Any damages from
students decorating their rooms will be charged to the student. Nothing
can be hung or attached to the ceiling as this is an important fire safety
factor. Students are not permitted to paint their room/common areas.
Doors, Propping or Forced Entry
The main entry doors to the Village and Thumb Butte Complex
buildings may not be propped open by any means at any time. For
reasons of fire, personal safety and building security, these doors are to
remain closed and locked twenty-four (24) hours per day. All Village
and TBC residents are required to have and use their Eagle Card for
building access and also to arrange to meet guests at the door. Pulling
on the doors to force them open is a major safety concern and damages
the doors.
Emergency Information
The safety of each individual and his/her property is of immediate
concern to the Department of Student Life. Emergencies should be
reported immediately to your RA or the RA on duty. If neither is
available; please contact Campus Safety by dialing ―0‖ on a campus
phone or 928-777-6671. In a life-threatening situation, FIRST call 9 -
911, THEN call an Embry-Riddle staff member. RAs are on duty from
7:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. daily and on call from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. on
weekends and any day the Student Life Office is closed. A Student Life
Professional is on duty twenty-four (24) hours a day.
Fire Evacuation Procedures
All windows, doorways, hallways and stairwells are to remain
unobstructed at all times. To block such areas is a violation of local fire
codes.



                                    68
Fire Codes require that the University conduct two fire drills each year
in all the halls. The Drill in the Fall Semester will be announced 48
hours in advance. The Spring Semester Drill will be unannounced.
All students must evacuate their building during all fire alarms. The
fire codes do not allow for any exceptions to this requirement.
Fire Alarm Evacuation Procedures
             Exit the building immediately by the proper pathway.
             If in your room, lock your door and take your key.
             Use stairways not elevators.
             Once outside, move 100 feet or more away from the
             building to the designated evacuation point.
             Mingus Mountain and TBC - Walk to the parking lot in
             front of your hall.
             Village Complex- Walk to the central sidewalk/walkway
             in the middle of the complex).
             Notify staff of the possible location of the fire, if known,
             or the possible cause of the alarm, and also of possible
             residents remaining in the building.
             Please do not re-enter an evacuated building unless a
             University official indicates the residents may return to
             the building.
             Failure to evacuate the building in a timely manner during
             any fire alarm may result in a $50 fine.
Furniture
The Department of Student Life provides each resident with a bed and
mattress, desk, desk chair, and dresser. Each resident provides his/her
own linens, bedding, cleaning materials and other small personal items.
Students are responsible for furniture provided by the Department of
Student Life. Mattresses must remain on the bed frame and may not be
placed on the floor. Dressers should not be used as supports for other
furniture (with exception of the Village Complex). Village residents
should contact their RA if they want their dresser stacked. Not all
types of dressers can be stacked. Any damage that results from
improper use of furniture will be charged to the residents.
The residents may not remove bedroom/living room furniture at any
time. Lounge furniture must stay in the lounge area at all times.
Removal of any furniture may result in fines of up to $100 per piece of
furniture or the cost to replace missing furniture.
Garbage/Trash/Recycling
All residents are responsible for properly separating and disposing of
any trash from their room/suite/apartment. All trash must be taken to
the trash dumpsters located near Hall M-100, M400, Roadrunner Hall

                                  69
1, Quail Hall 3, Javelina Hall 5, Juniper Hall 6 and Saguaro Hall 8.
Blue recycling bins are provided in every living unit. Recycling
dumpsters are located near M400, Quail Hall 3, Juniper Hall 6 and
Saguaro Hall 8. Students found to be depositing room trash in
University-provided receptacles in halls, lounges, common kitchens or
laundry rooms may be subject to student conduct action.
Guest Information
Within certain guidelines, residents are permitted to have guests visit.
A guest is defined as anyone who does not reside in the particular room
in which they are visiting. This includes residents of other buildings,
other suites or apartments, Embry-Riddle students living off-campus,
and people who are not affiliated with the University. Guests are
required to be escorted at all times within the residence halls. This
means that guests may not remain in the apartment or suite without
their host being present.
Please keep in mind, having a guest is a privilege, not a right, and this
privilege is subject to immediate removal for violation of the guest
policy.
Residents are responsible for the actions and behaviors of their guest at
all times and to ensure that their guests are aware of our policies and
adhere to them. The roommates and suitemates must approve all
guests. Student Life staff reserve the right to ask a guest to leave at any
time.
Guests are permitted to stay overnight in the halls for up to two nights
maximum within a calendar month. Out of courtesy to their
room/apartment/suitemates residents are asked to limit their guests
overnight stays to maximum 72 hour limit and not more than twice in a
calendar month. Exceptions may be made through the permission of
the Area Coordinator. Guests are not allowed to sleep or spend the
night in public lounges.
Guests under the age of 18 years of age must be approved through the
Department of Student Life at least seventy-two (72) hours prior to
their visit.
Resident hosts are expected to respect the rights and privacy of
roommates and other living group members when sponsoring a guest.
Actions that may disrupt the roommates/living group’s rights are
prohibited.
A violation of the guest policy may result in an additional room charge
on the student’s account. This means that if a guest stays beyond the
registered time of two nights per calendar month, a student may be
charged a prorated fee of the room rate and may be subject to student
conduct action.




                                    70
~ Guest Parking
Guests must park in Parking Lot ―N‖ in front of Building 73, Haas
Commons, and they must have and display a guest parking permit.
Guest parking permits are available at the Campus Safety Office
located at Building 17B.
Health & Safety Inspections
All RAs will conduct Health and Safety Inspections (HSIs) for each
living area once monthly throughout the academic year. During this
time the RA has an opportunity to talk with residents, follow-up on any
work orders, and ensure no cleanliness, health or safety concerns exist.
Inspections and the HSIs will be performed by teams of two Student
Life staff members.
It is the responsibility of all residents to clean their bedrooms, living
rooms, lounges, bathrooms, showers and kitchens (also see
―Cleaning‖). If rooms or units are found to be in an unsanitary or
unsafe condition, the resident(s) will be given forty-eight (48) hours to
correct the problem. If the problem is not corrected in the allotted time,
the Area Coordinator (AC) will inspect the space and issue a final
warning. If this final warning is not heeded, outside cleaning sources
may be brought in at the residents’ expense. Resident(s) may also be
fined $25 to $50 per day until the conditions are corrected. Charges for
corrective actions may be divided equally among the residents in the
space.
Keys, Locks, Lock-Out Procedures
Residents are responsible for the proper use and security of all keys
issued to them by the Department of Student Life. Key duplication or
other misuse is strictly prohibited for safety concerns. If a key is lost or
lock mechanism is damaged as a result of student abuse or misuse, the
student’s account will be charged for repair or replacement.
Students are expected to lock both their interior and exterior doors at
all times and always carry their room key. If you lock your key in your
room, please go to the Student Life Office during business hours. After
hours, please contact the RA on duty/call.
In the event that a student loses his/her room key, such loss must be
reported to Housing and Residence Life immediately. The student's
account will be charged for a lock core change and key replacement
based on the area in which the student lives. A temporary key will be
issued until the lock core change takes place. Students will be notified
when the core change takes place and new keys must be obtained from
Housing and Residence Life. The charge for a lock core change and
key replacement is as follows:
                   Thumb Butte Complex:             $50.00
                   The Village Complex:             $50.00
                   Mingus Mountain Complex:         $75.00

                                    71
Broken or bent keys resulting from student misuse will be replaced for
a charge of $10.
Laundry Rooms (http://laundryview.com)
There are four laundry rooms available for use by current campus
residents only. In the Mingus Mountain Complex there are two laundry
rooms. One is on the first floor of Roadrunner Hall (1) where it joins
with Coyote Hall (2) and the second one is on the first floor of Quail
Hall (3) where it joins with Elk Hall (4). In the Village Complex there
is one laundry room that is part of Dells Hall (9) and is located on the
end towards Granite Mountain Hall (10). In the Thumb Butte Complex
the laundry room is in Hall M-200.
For your convenience, Laundry View service allows you to check the
availability of laundry machines via your computer before you go to
the laundry room. You can also have it notify you when machines are
available. To access the link for Laundry View, go to Blackboard, then
to the Prescott page and look under Student Links for Laundry View.
Laundry rooms are cleaned on a regular basis. Any laundry/items left
in a laundry room that is not in a washer, dryer or basket will be placed
in a collection box in the laundry room for a period of twenty-four (24)
hours. If laundry remains unclaimed, it will be transferred to a
collection bag by University staff or a designee and disposed of
according to the abandoned items procedures (see Abandoned Items).
If there are problems with the machines, please contact the Department
of Student Life in Haas Commons at 928-777-3744 or
prhouse@erau.edu. Students can also report laundry machine problems
on-line at http://laundryview.com via the ―Report a Problem‖ link at
the bottom of the page.. To better facilitate and expedite our work
order process, please specify the laundry room location, machine type
and number, and a brief description of the problem. If you have a
problem with your Eagle Card, please contact the Eagle Card Office in

Pets
Fish in a maximum ten-gallon tank are the only pets allowed in the
residence halls. Other animals are not allowed in the residence halls at
any time (except service animals assisting those with documented
needs, and pets of live-on Student Life professionals). If a student is
found in violation of this policy, a $50 fine per day per animal may be
charged as well as any cleaning costs. Residents may be given a
maximum of 48-hours to remove the pet.
Power Outages
Power outages should be reported to the Department of Student Life or
Campus Safety. Please note that during power outages, the only phone
service available is from the emergency blue light and courtesy phones.
Emergency blue light phones are spread throughout campus and near
the halls. Courtesy phones near the entries to all Village Complex and
Thumb Butte Complex buildings.
Room Changes
Residents may request to make room changes any time after the second
week of classes. Specific instructions on how to complete room
changes may be obtained from the Student Life Office and are listed
below. Failure to follow these procedures may result in a minimum $50
fine and/or additional room charges as deemed appropriate.
Room Change Procedure
At times during the year circumstances will arise with roommates that
may result in one or all roommates requesting a room change. A
number of procedures need to be followed when initiating a room
change:
1. Not all room changes will be granted. We do not want to be in the
position of automatically approving all room changes without
discussion and compromise. Staff members will work with residents
when possible to develop alternatives to solve roommate conflicts.
2. After all alternatives have been investigated and exhausted; and the
decision has been made by a Student Life Professional that a room
change is in the best interest of all roommates, the Area Coordinator
will try to locate a suitable room if space is available. If space is


                                  73
available for a room change, the resident who is moving will then
receive a Room Change Form from the Area Coordinator.
3. Obtain key and Room Condition Report for new assignment.
Complete RCR for new room.
4. Completely move to new assignment within 48 hours.
5. Make an appointment with current RA to check out of your old
room no later than twenty-four 24 hours after completing your move.
6. Return new RCR to your new RA no later than twenty-four (24)
hours after checking out of your old room.
Due to overcrowding at the beginning of the term, along with the
philosophy that students be given time to work out any possible
roommate conflicts, no room changes will be granted during the first
two weeks of each term. Exception will be granted on a case-by-case
basis.
If a resident moves improperly or without first receiving prior approval
from the Department of Student Life, a minimum $50 fine may be
charged to his/her student account for administrative processing.
Room Consolidations
As stated in the Housing Contract, the University reserves the right to
change room assignments, assign a new resident, reassign a current
resident and/or consolidate vacancies at any time in the interest of
health, discipline and maximum utilization of residence hall space.
Residents currently living alone in a double-occupancy room are given
the following options:
Go through the consolidation process where a roommate may be
assigned or the student may be assigned to move to a new room
Find a resident who does not have a roommate and have them move in,
or move into their room
Pay for a single room at 150% of the current double occupancy rate (if
space is available). If granted, this room will only remain a single
room for the remainder of the semester in which it became a single.
The student may be assigned a roommate during the following
semester or go through room consolidation again.
Further details on the issue of assignment, reassignment and/or
consolidation may be obtained from the Department of Housing and
Residence Life.
Room Entry Procedures
Facilities Management, Campus Safety, and Student Life staff are
permitted to enter student rooms for completion of work orders, routine
checks or inspections, emergencies, or to investigate suspected policy
violation. Proper room entry procedures are expected to be followed at
all times:

                                  74
         Knock on the door three times
         Announce identity and announce intention to key-in
         Announce identity once again as they key into room and enter
If a resident observes that this procedure is not being followed, the
Department of Student Life should be notified immediately and
corrective action will be taken.
Roommate Notification and Reassignments
When possible, residents will be given twenty-four (24) hours notice
by University e-mail of receiving a new roommate. Unless a resident is
assigned to and paying for a single room, it is expected that the room is
always ready for double-occupancy. Students who do not keep the
room ready for double-occupancy may be charged for a single room.
Room Searches
The University cannot prevent or prohibit the search of students’ rooms
on University premises by law enforcement officers acting in the
performance of their duty. It is expected, however, that the ordinary
requirements for lawful search will be followed.
University protocol regarding room searches dictates that the Director
of Student Life or their designee will be notified. Probable cause must
be present that a policy is in violation or the safety of the student or
other residents is in jeopardy. At least two representatives from
Campus Safety and/or Student Life will be present for the search.
Every effort will be made to have the resident(s) of the room(s)
present. If they prove to be unavailable, the search may proceed with
clearance from the Director of Student Life or their designee.
If there is concern for a person’s safety, or reason to believe that a
policy violation is occurring at that time then RAs may enter, but may
not search, student rooms.
The inspection of students’ rooms for maintenance/custodial
requirements is not considered to be a search. If a violation of policy is
noted by the maintenance/custodial staff, it will be reported to the
Department of Student Life and appropriate action will be taken.
Single Rooms
Single rooms are charged at 150% of the double occupancy room rate.

Changes.‖
Smoke Detectors/Sprinklers/Fire Extinguishers
Smoke detectors are located in individual rooms and common areas of
each residence hall. To ensure that the smoke detectors are
appropriately used and serve their designed function, dismantling,
covering or otherwise altering smoke detectors is prohibited. Fire
extinguishers are located in the common hallways of the Village and

                                   75
Thumb Butte Complexes, and on the walls on the exterior
walkways/balconies in Mingus Mountain. Discharging of a fire
extinguisher for non-emergency purposes will result in student conduct
proceedings and possible charges for cleanup and recharging of the
extinguisher.
In the Village Complex, there is no battery or reset button for the
smoke detectors in the bedrooms. In a non-emergency situation (e.g.
overcooked food) open your window and close your door to clear the
smoke. You will need to fan the smoke from the detector, preferably
with a damp towel to shut the detector off. Opening your apartment
door to the main hallway will activate the alarm for the entire hall.
Students found to be tampering with smoke detectors will be subject to
student conduct action and may be charged for repair and/or
replacement costs incurred. The sprinklers are heat and touch sensitive.
Do not hang, touch or disrupt the sprinklers at any time. If a sprinkler
goes off, the resident in the room will be held accountable for damage
costs. If the sprinkler is activated in a common area, the residents of
the building will be held accountable for damages unless the person
who activated the sprinkler system is identified. Sprinkler system
discharge can result in $10,000 or more in damages plus personal
property loss.
Tampering with any fire safety equipment (including covering smoke
detectors) may result in a minimum fine of $100.
Temperature Control
The rooms in the Village and Mingus Complexes have temperature
control for the living unit. The temperature should be set so that all
residents are comfortable. The Department of Student Life and the
Resource Conservation Committee (RC2) recommends the temperature
be set between 70-75 degrees.
The temperature control for the Thumb Butte Complex is regulated
though the Department of Student Life and any tampering with the
units may result in student conduct action.
Vending Machines
If you have problems with the vending machines, please call the
Purchasing Office call at 928-777-3795.
