FINES

The school/Campus Security reserves the right to administer moderate fines as part of discipline for the disregard of Principia’s rules and policies, or an offense against the community or individual. Fines for subsequent offenses are generally increased. In addition to fines, serious or multiple offenses could result in a disciplinary hearing at Community Board, and possible suspension. The following are examples of typical first-time fines that would be charged for each violation and to each individual involved in an incident. If an incident results in a large sum of fines, the school/Campus Security will consider giving students the option of working off fines.
