Student Rights and Responsibilities

Institutions of higher education are in existence to provide learning experiences for their students. Academic freedom in teaching and learning is essential to this purpose and is fundamental for the protection of the rights of the students as well as the faculty members. Students at South College have the rights of freedom of inquiry and speech within their learning experiences. These rights are based on the assumption that students will act responsibly in the learning environment.

South College is committed to developing in each student an understanding of the knowledge and ethics that are consistent with responsible professional and social behavior. Students are expected to meet academic requirements as well as to develop a sense of personal responsibility toward others and respect for their individual rights. The atmosphere of the college reflects these goals, and in turn, each student must be aware of his/her individual responsibility to behave accordingly.

By enrolling as a student at South College, students agree to abide by the rules and regulations of the college. The Academic Honor Code is included in this Handbook, as well as Student Conduct Standards and Regulations which address student behavior. Alleged violations of the Academic Honor Code, Student Conduct Standards and Regulations, or the Computer Code of Ethics should be referred to the Director of Student Success or Student Affairs Coordinator/Director. Some areas of study have supplementary materials in programmatic policies and procedures manuals that students in these disciplines are responsible for as well as those in this Student Handbook. South College reserves the right to change any provision listed in the South College Catalog and all other college publications without actual notice to students.
