Judicial Affairs

A community of higher learning can make its maximum contribution only if high standards of integrity, courtesy, and accomplishment are maintained by every member of the college.  Responsibility for achieving this goal falls upon students, faculty, and administration alike.

The college reserves the right to discipline any student for any behavior, on college premises or in connection with college-sponsored activities, which is judged as detrimental to the aim and objectives of the college.  The individual student is responsible for understanding specific regulations set forth in the "Student Code of Conduct" appearing in the Student Handbook.

For more information about the student judicial process, please contact one of the following Directors responsible for judicial affairs:
