In the interest of public safety and to help maintain a safe and secure campus environment, the Department of Campus Safety, in conjunction with the Office of the Dean of Students, where applicable, may enforce violations of the following regulations through the issuance of a University violation notice, which generates the placement of a fine on a student’s account. Minor violations of regulations, such as improper parking, littering, holding overdue library books, etc., may result in fines, which if not paid, can result in the University’s refusal to release grades, transcripts, or permission to register. The process for appealing University violation notices is indicated below.

1. In the interest of public safety or in conjunction with an alleged violation of University regulations, Campus Safety officers and University officials may require that anyone on University property present suitable identification and state an acceptable reason for being on University property.

Students who do not have their Lawrence Tech identification card must produce some form of suitable picture identification when requested to do so by a Campus Safety officer or University official, otherwise the student must immediately leave University property. Failure or refusal to produce a Lawrence Tech identification card will result in a University violation notice.

5. Students who can otherwise be identified or confirmed as a student but who fail/refuse to produce suitable identification will receive a University violation notice.

Those persons who cannot be identified as a student and who fail/refuse to produce suitable identification and refuse to leave the campus are subject to the city of Southfield’s trespass ordinance. In this case, the trespasser will be told not to return to University property and will be escorted off University property by the Southfield police.

9. Students who fail/refuse to obey fire/tornado drills or actual alerts on University property will be referred to the Office of the Dean of Students for consideration of a Student Code of Conduct violation.
