Columbus Technical College conducts educational programs to prepare students for employment. Therefore, all students are expected to dress appropriately according to the occupations for which they are being trained. Students who are deemed inappropriately dressed (who are dressed in a manner which could present a safety hazard or which might be offensive to others or cause disruption to the College) will not be allowed to attend class. Shirts, caps or any other article of clothing that implies obscenities, gang affiliation, or that can be construed as offensive or discriminatory are prohibited, as this could symbolize disruptive behavior. Students shall at all times observe rules governing personal hygiene and not wear short or tight skirts/shorts, swimsuits, tank tops, bare midriffs, exposed under garments or have bare feet.
