The instructor should indicate to the student that the behaviour is disruptive and ask that the individual conform to expected standards

If the instructor considers that there is immediate danger or is concerned for their safety, contact University of Guelph Police, ext. 52000
If a student is asked to leave the classroom or if an instructor is concerned about that individual's safety, the department chair should be notified.
