The College recognizes that students are both citizens and members of the academic community.
- As citizens, students enjoy the same freedoms and rights that all citizens enjoy – freedom of speech and assembly, freedom of association, freedom of the press, right of petition, and right of due process.
- As members of the academic community, students are expected to conduct their affairs in accordance with the standards set forth in the Student Code of Conduct.
Because the College must maintain its credibility as an institution of higher education, it has established and maintains standards of academic honesty against which students are regularly evaluated in the performance of their course work.
Upon enrolling in the College, each student assumes an obligation to conduct himself/herself in a manner compatible with the College’s function as an educational institution and to comply with the laws enacted by Federal, State, and local governments. If this obligation is neglected or ignored by the student, the College must, in the interest of fulfilling its function, institute appropriate disciplinary action.
The Student Code of Conduct can be viewed in its entirety in the Student Handbook. Any Jefferson College faculty or staff member or student may request initiation of disciplinary procedures for unacceptable conduct or for conduct which involves infraction of College rules and regulations. Please submit the details of any allegations of violations using the Maxient Incident Report Form. For further information regarding Student Conduct, please contact the Student Conduct and Care Team Coordinator at 636-481-3262 or in the Student Center-Room 211. TTY Users dial 711.
