Student Conduct

The code of student conduct is a set of rules that applies to every student enrolled at MCC.  Every student is responsible for abiding by the code of student conduct.

College is a time for learning, inside and outside the classroom. MCC respects the rights of faculty to teach and students to learn. Maintenance of these rights requires classroom conditions that do not impede the learning process. Classroom behavior that seriously interferes with either the instructor’s ability to conduct the class or the ability of other students to profit from the instructional program will not be tolerated. Each member of the campus community—instructors, staff, and students—contributes to the climate of MCC’s locations by:

  • respecting fellow students, staff, and faculty;
  • practicing honesty;
  • being tolerant of differences; and
  • demonstrating civility.

The code of student conduct addresses two areas of behavior: academic and non-academic. Contact the appropriate academic dean regarding questions about academic misconduct; contact the dean of student advocacy and accountability regarding questions about non-academic/behavior misconduct. Violators of the student conduct code are subject to one or more sanctions depending on the seriousness of the violation.
