Suspension is defined as a sanction imposed for disciplinary reasons that result in a student leaving school for a fixed period of time, less than permanently. Dismissal from a college for disciplinary reasons is defined as permanent separation from an institution of higher education on the basis of conduct or behavior. An affirmative response to either question will not automatically prevent admission, but you will be asked by SUNY Potsdam to provide additional information. A campus committee to ensure campus safety will review this information. Any falsification or omission of data may result in a denial of admission or dismissal.
Have you been dismissed and/or suspended from a college for disciplinary reasons?
Even if you have never attended college, a response is required.
