The Virginia Community College System guarantees to students the privilege of exercising their rights of citizenship under the Constitution of the United States without fear of prejudice. Special care is taken to ensure due process and to spell out deﬁned routes of appeal when students feel their rights have been violated.
Each student is considered a responsible adult, and it is assumed that students shall maintain standards of conduct appropriate to membership in the college community. Emphasis is placed on standards of student conduct rather than on limits or restrictions of students. Students should be aware of the Colleges’ guidelines and regulations governing student conduct that are contained herein. The College reserves the right to take disciplinary action compatible with its own best interests when it is clearly necessary.
