Student Code of Conduct

Student Code of Conduct

At San José City College we are committed to providing a safe, positive learning environment where students can pursue their educational goals and participate in college-sponsored activities that promote intellectual growth and personal development.

San Jose City College considers the following principles essential to its educational mission and campus community. These standards are intended to promote responsible student conduct:

    1. Mutual respect between students, faculty and staff
    2. Pursuit of studies with honesty and integrity
    3. Respect for College and personal property
    4. Compliance with all rules and regulations

To the extent possible, SJCC’s response to acts or behaviors prohibited by law or District regulation should be educational rather than punitive. District disciplinary procedures will not be used as a substitute for, or a shield from, civil or criminal law. In any District disciplinary procedure, substantive and procedural due process shall be guaranteed.
