Students enrolling at Columbus Technical College accept certain responsibilities and obligations including satisfactory academic performance and social behavior consistent with the College’s educational mission. To fulfill its functions as an educational institution, the College retains the power to maintain order and to exclude those who are disruptive to the educational process.
All students must understand that certain types of conduct will lead to disciplinary action by the College. A Student Code of Conduct has been adopted by the Technical College System of Georgia and the College in order to suggest the types of conduct that will be considered to adversely affect the College’s educational function, disrupt community living on campus, or to interfere with the rights of others to pursue their education, to carry out their daily activities, or to conduct their duties and responsibilities. In general, the College will use appropriate procedures to impose institutional disciplinary measures for conduct that adversely affects the College’s pursuit of its educational objectives, that violates or shows a disregard for the rights of other members of the College community, or that endangers property or persons or College-controlled property.
The College may take disciplinary action for an offense against the Code of Conduct when the offense takes place on campus or off campus at school-sanctioned events or field trips or when an on-campus or off-campus offense is such that in the judgment of the Vice President of Academic Affairs it is necessary to enforce disciplinary action so as not to interfere with the educational process and the orderly operation of the College or to endanger the health, safety, or welfare of the College community.
