Sex Crimes Prevention Act
The Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act (section 1601 of Public Law 106-386) is a federal law that requires institutions of higher education to advise their campus communities as to where one can find law enforcement information concerning registered sex offenders who are enrolled as students or who are employed by or volunteering for the institution of higher education. The law also requires registered sex offenders to provide specific notice, as required under state law, of each institution of higher education in that state which the person is associated as an employee, volunteer, student, or other connection. Colorado law requires individuals registered sex offenders to include this information when they register or to update their registration with such information.
All prospective students who are registered sex offenders and those students who after admission to the College become registered sex offenders must self-report their status and submit relevant documentation to the Director of Campus Safety and Security prior to admission or enrollment in any course or program. In alignment with Aims Student Policy 5-100, the College may deny admission or enrollment in certain courses or programs to individuals who cannot benefit from the programs or courses offered or who are considered detrimental to the best interest of the College community. Admission of registered sex offenders or the continued enrollment in courses or programs of students who, after admission or enrollment, become registered sex offenders, is considered on a case-by-case basis and is based on the College’s ability to, among other factors considered, accommodate restrictions and/or conditions of the registered sex offender’s probation or parole as provided in Policy 624.
