After violation of the honor code, course attendance policy, dress code requirements, or other serious incidents, a student will be notified in writing of the nature of the violations within five business days. After two such violations, a meeting of the EMS Education Faculty will be conducted to determine the student’s status in the EMS Program. The result could be any of the following, or a combination therein:
Immediate temporary suspension from the program
Permanent dismissal from the course
Dismissal may be on a temporary or permanent basis. Program dismissal will be considered if the student engages in unprofessional, unethical, or harmful behavior. Behavior considered inappropriate shall include but is not limited to the following:
Behavior that is in violation of the Program Code of Conduct
Behavior that is inconsistent with the National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians’ (NAEMT) Code of Ethics
Behavior that would place the student in violation of unprofessional conduct standards for emergency medical professionals, as defined by the Texas Department of State Health Services.
Habitual abuse of alcohol, narcotics or drugs listed in Schedules I, II, III, or IV of the Comprehensive Drug Abuse Act of 1970.
Dismissed students will be assigned a grade of “F” and must be re-admitted to resume their studies.
