The college reserves the right to maintain a safe and orderly educational environment for students and staff. Therefore, when in the judgment of college officials, a student’s conduct disrupts or threatens to disrupt the college community, appropriate disciplinary action will be taken to restore and protect the well being of the community.
Students are expected to conduct themselves in accordance with generally accepted standards of scholarship and morality. The purpose of the Student Code of Conduct is not to restrict student rights, but to protect the rights of individuals in their academic pursuits.
College Security Officers and employees have the authority to take immediate actions and begin disciplinary proceedings in response to violations of the Student Code of Conduct.
Students should note that the possession, consumption, or distribution of alcohol or illegal drugs, or possession of weapons on campuses or any other CPCC instructional site is specifically prohibited and regulated by state statute. Violators will be prosecuted by the authorities. For more information, go to Policy 7.00 Conduct of Students.
