Student Code of Conduct

Pitt Community College strives to create an academic community conducive to the development of each student by fostering an educational process committed to excellence and equity. Students are expected to behave in a manner that is conducive to the mission of the College. In recognition of the special relationship that exists between the College and the academic community, Pitt Community College Board of Trustees has authorized the President to take such action that may be necessary to maintain campus safety and preserve the integrity of the College.

The Student Code of Conduct is applicable to every student enrolled at the College, and may at times, apply to persons off campus when using College facilities or participating in PCC programs or activities, including off campus trips and clinical sites. The term "student" includes all persons registered for or enrolled in one or more courses at PCC, either for credit or non-credit. Students may be accountable to both civil authorities and to the College for acts that constitute violations of law and this Code. Disciplinary action at the College will be independent and proceed during the process of criminal proceedings, and will not be subject to challenge on the ground that criminal charges involving the same incident have been dismissed or reduced. PCC has the discretion to proceed with disciplinary action under this Code in addition to any criminal or civil judicial proceedings.

Any student who fails to conduct himself/herself in such a manner violates this Code and a disciplinary penalty may be imposed.
