- To receive private and confidential examination/treatment for personal injuries, sexually transmittable disease, and pregnancy.
- To be considered as credible as a person reporting any other crime
- To be made aware of the options available through the College and the judicial system
- To receive emotional and psychological support and advocacy
- To prosecute or not to prosecute
- To receive current information on community and campus resources
- To answer only those questions relevant to the crime
- To freedom from harassment
- To feasible class schedule adjustments (without academic or financial penalty) as necessary to minimize the potential for contact with the alleged perpetrator or those associated with the alleged perpetrator. Student Services will assist victims with any academic concerns or change in class schedule requests that are feasible.
