WAUKESHA — Three Carroll University students have been suspended for a semester after they hosted an off-campus party.
According to the university on Tuesday, the students held a large gathering at their residence and did not abide by social distancing or face mask rules.
The students were suspended for a semester. They attempted to appeal the decision, but failed and have since been suspended. However, the university has refunded 80 percent of their tuition.
"Our conduct policy clearly states in the first paragraph that the rules apply both on and off-campus. These rules have been online since the beginning of June," according to the university.
In addition to suspending the students, university officials are meeting with those who attended the party. They will ensure that the students quarantine for 14 days, and they also face punishment such as meeting with school officials, a documented warning, or house probation.
The school has set up a sanctioning process for things like not wearing a mask, hosting a party, and other COVID-19 related things. You can find a description of that process below.
