the student must pay the listed fine. Students receiving four citations within a calendar
year may be referred to the Office of the Director of Student Life. Disciplinary action

- The Student Traffic and Parking Appeals Committee generally meets to hear appeals
which have been submitted. The committee is comprised of three college students, one
college staff member, and one college faculty member.
This committee meets at least once per semester. This committee will be randomly selected
from a list of persons volunteering to serve in this capacity at the beginning of
the fall semester of each school year. The Committee will be established at the beginning
of the fall, spring and summer semesters for membership during that semester. In the
event that it is impossible to gather the entire committee, a substitute committee
member will be selected, in the appropriate classification.
