The College is dedicated to providing a setting and atmosphere for learning, and the development of professional skills. In encouraging this purpose, students are expected to respect the rights of others and adhere to acceptable standards of personal conduct with maturity and responsibility.
The restrictions on conduct are set forth in Chapter IX of the Student Handbook and shall apply to conduct that occurs on The College premises, at College sponsored activities, and to off-campus conduct that adversely affects The College community and/or the pursuit of its objectives. Each student shall be responsible for his/her conduct from the time of application for admission through the actual awarding of a degree, even though conduct may occur before classes begin or after classes end, as well as during the academic year and during periods between terms of actual enrollment (and even if their conduct is not discovered until after a degree is awarded). The restrictions on conduct set forth in Chapter IX of the Student Handbook shall apply to a student’s conduct even if the student withdraws from college while a disciplinary matter is pending. The President of The College shall decide whether the Student Code shall be applied to conduct occurring off campus, on a case-by-case basis, in his/her sole discretion.
Students are expected to comply with the policies, rules, regulations and procedures described in the Student Handbook. Conduct inconsistent with these expectations will result in disciplinary actions.
