    5. Transfer to another program of study.

As a result of this conference, the counselor, in conjunction with the academic advisor, may require the student to take one of the actions described in item C-3 above.
  5. In certain circumstances the counselor, in conjunction with the academic advisor, may institute one semester of academic suspension when it appears to be in the best interest of the student.
