Student Conduct

The conduct process

The Student Code of Conduct is designed to communicate the expectations that PCC has of its students and serves as a guide for students to understand their responsibility in their behavior and respect for others in our community.

This educational conduct process is rooted in student development theory assures students receive due process, while protecting the safety and rights of others.  The Student Affairs staff who administer the Student Code of Conduct strive to provide an equitable process for all.

Collaboration with multiple college and community resources are essential in facilitating timely resolution of conduct reports.
