(1) are present, and a temporary suspension is warranted, the temporary suspension shall be in effect pending the final institutional decision in the matter. 
 
UWS 17.17(7)
(7) Where a temporary suspension is imposed, the hearing on the underlying allegations of misconduct shall be held within 21 days of the imposition of the temporary suspension, unless the student agrees to a later date.  In no case shall a temporary suspension remain in effect for longer than 30 days, unless the student agrees to a longer period.
