Where discipline problems with customers arise, Dining Services management may refer a student to the university judicial system or take administrative action by levying a charge for certain offenses.
The schedule of these charges is as follows:
- Possessing or attempting to use the JMU Access Card of another person.
- Loaning a JMU Access Card to another person.
- Using false pretenses in an attempt to gain goods or services illicitly from Dining Services.
- Using an improper entrance or exit.
- Attempting to remove food, drink or materials belonging to Dining Services from the dining premises. (Concealment of such goods in clothing or other personal belongings is considered an attempt to remove.)
- Refusal to comply with a reasonable request by a Dining Services official. (A request to search personal belongings is considered a reasonable request.)
- Disorderly conduct.
- Damaging Dining Services facilities, equipment or property (plus cost of damages, $1 minimum assessment).
- Bringing alcoholic beverages into a Dining Services facility (plus confiscation of beverage).
- Failure to present a JMU Access Card upon request by a Dining Services official.
- Throwing food, paper or other “soft materials.” (Throwing dishes, silverware or other hard and potentially dangerous materials will automatically be referred to the university judicial system.)
- Stealing or attempting to steal Dining Services property. (Concealing such property in clothing or other personal belongings is considered an attempt to steal.)
- Extreme disorderly conduct such as severe personal abuse of customers or employees, physical fighting, jeopardizing the safety of others or causing a serious public disturbance.
Appeals to any of the above-levied charges may be made in person to the Director of Dining Services.
