All faculty members at McPherson College have the responsibility to maintain an atmosphere conducive to learning in their classrooms and labs. Therefore, when, in the judgment of the instructor, a student’s behavior undermines the learning atmosphere, the instructor may remove that student from the classroom for the remainder of the class period.

Students who repeatedly undermine the learning environment, or whose disruptive behavior includes violence, threats, or harassment, may be subject to permanent ejection from a course. Unless the instructor specifies otherwise, ejected students fail the course.

To request permanent removal of a disruptive student from a course, an instructor must document in writing the dates and behaviors justifying the request. The request should be submitted to the CAO, copied to the affected student, and placed in the student’s permanent records. Students have the right to appeal an instructor’s request for permanent removal from a course to the CAO.
