Emergency Withdrawal, Suspension, or Dismissal

Middlebury recognizes its obligation to promote the welfare of its community as a whole and to take appropriate action when that welfare is jeopardized. To that end, Middlebury reserves the right, notwithstanding and apart from the disciplinary procedures described herein, on an emergency basis, to suspend, dismiss, or require to withdraw any student whose presence at any of its Bread Loaf School of English campuses is determined by the appropriate authority (e.g., the Bread Loaf director or designee or the vice president for Language Schools, Schools Abroad, and Graduate Programs) to pose a danger to the Middlebury and/or Bread Loaf community or its members or to be unduly disruptive of the living, working, and/or learning environment of others, or who appears to be unwilling or incapable of effectively and/or safely participating in Bread Loaf’s academic and/or residential life program(s). In cases of emergency suspension or required withdrawal, the conditions and procedures for readmission, if applicable, will be determined and communicated in writing to the student at the time of the student’s departure or shortly thereafter (for more information, see Withdrawals in the BLSE Student Handbook).
