2.5 STUDENT RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES 2.5.1 Disciplinary Standards
1. Disciplinary Probation and Suspension
According to the laws of the State of Arizona, jurisdiction and control over the Maricopa Community Colleges are vested in the District Governing Board. The Governing Board and its agents-the chancellor, administration and faculty-are granted broad legal authority to regulate student life subject to basic standards of reasonableness.
In developing responsible student conduct, the Maricopa Community Colleges prefer mediation, guidance, admonition and example. However, when these means fail to resolve problems of student conduct and responsibility, appropriate disciplinary procedures will be followed.
Misconduct for which students are subject to disciplinary action falls into the general areas of:
A. Cheating on an examination, assessment tests, laboratory work, written work (plagiarism),
falsifying, forging or altering college records
B. Actions or verbal statements which threaten the personal safety of any faculty, staff, students, or
others lawfully assembled on the campus, or any conduct which is harmful, obstructive,
disruptive to, or interferes with the educational process or institutional functions
C. Violation of Arizona statutes, and/or college regulations and policies
D. Use of college computer resources such as the Internet in violation of Technology Resource Standards (AR 4.4)which may result in notification of law enforcement authorities
2. Disciplinary Removal from Class
A faculty member may remove a student from class meetings for disciplinary reasons. If an instructor removes a student for more than one class period, the faculty member shall notify the department/division chair and the appropriate vice president or designee in writing of the problem, action taken by the faculty member, and the faculty member's recommendation. If a resolution of the problem is not reached between the faculty member and the student, the student may be removed permanently pursuant to due process procedures.
