Student Code of Conduct

(College Policy: 6Hx28: 8-03 Student Code of Conduct)

Although the President of Valencia holds the ultimate authority for student discipline, this authority is delegated through the Vice President for Student Affairs to each campus Dean of Students. The campus Dean of Students is responsible for implementing the student disciplinary system and may involve additional college staff or others as appropriate in seeking resolution.

Valencia may impose discipline for violation of, or an attempt to violate, any College policies or campus regulations. Violations include, but are not limited to, the types of misconduct described in Section III Grounds for Discipline and Section IV Standards of Classroom Behavior of the Student Code of Conduct policy.

Nothing in Valencia’s discipline policy shall be construed as preventing college officials from taking any immediate action which may be deemed necessary.

The full text of these policies is printed in the Valencia Student Handbook and in the Valencia Policy Manual at: valenciacollege.edu/about/generalcounsel/policy.

Expected Student Conduct

Valencia is dedicated not only to the advancement of knowledge and learning but also to the development of responsible personal and social conduct. As a registered student, you assume the responsibility for conducting yourself in a manner that contributes positively to Valencia’s learning community and that does not impair, interfere with, or obstruct the orderly conduct, processes, and functions of the college as described in the Student Code of Conduct (College Policy: 6Hx28: 8-03).

Being convicted in a court of law for a criminal offense involving personal misconduct may constitute sufficient grounds for suspension or expulsion from the college.
