(Willful Destruction of Hartnell College property is covered in the "Rights, Responsibilities, and Grievance Procedures for Hartnell College Students" brochure available in the Office of Student Affairs. Written notices will be given to students indicating the amounts due the College for damage or loss of College property, with explanation of the consequences of non-payment. Consequences may include temporary cancellation of registration and placement of a hold on student records, e.g., transcripts, until the debt is paid.
If it is necessary to cancel registration or place a hold on student records for such a reason as stated above, the student may be reinstated and/or have his or her student records released immediately upon clearing his or her obligation.
