rusticatable

adjective; derivation
worthy of being denied on-campus housing At Rice, there are some offenses that will not get you expelled from the university altogether, but they may take away certain privileges. The punishment of rustication kicks you out of on-campus housing, but still allows you to take and attend classes. The aim is to cut you off from all campus social life. A RUSTICATABLE offense is an action that could have the punishment of rustification. With the word ‘rusticate’ already in existence, it was only a matter of time before this word was derived (especially at Rice University, where abbreviated speech abounds).
 
Smoking marijuana on long hall is a rusticatable offense.
Etymology : Eng. rusticate ‘to send down’ + -able ‘worthy of’
