Statement of Student Rights

The VCCS guarantees students the privilege of exercising their rights of citizenship under the Constitution of the United States without fear of prejudice. The college reserves the right to evaluate and document special cases and to refuse or revoke admission if the college determines that the applicant or student poses a threat, is a potential danger, is significantly disruptive to the college community, or if such refusal or revocation is considered to be in the best interest of the college. The college also reserves the right to refuse admission for applicants that have been expelled or suspended from, or determined to be a threat, potential danger or significantly disruptive by, another college. Students whose admission is revoked after enrollment must be given due process. Students have the right to due process and to appeal as defined in the sections on Student Disciplinary Procedure and Student Complaint and Academic Due Process of this handbook.

CLASSROOM PROTOCOL
Classroom civility and courtesy are expected at all times.

In the event a faculty member is late for class and no information is provided by college personnel, students should wait fifteen minutes, make an attendance list with the signatures of all stuĀ­dents present, and leave the attendance list with the administrator on duty.

Eating and drinking is not permitted in computer, nursing, and science labs, studios, and workshops.

Cell phones should not be used during classroom and lab instruction or during testing unless permitted by faculty for instructional purposes.

All students are expected to dress appropriately for class and/or for programs in specific disciplines. As a safety regulation, shoes must be worn at all times.

Students are expected to observe the attendance and lateness policies, which are published in the college catalog and in course outlines, and which are set by individual faculty members.

Unregistered individuals such as the children of students are not permitted in the classrooms and labs. Animals, except for approved assistance animals are not permitted in the classrooms and other campus facilities.
