The Standards of Conduct provide guidelines on how students are expected to conduct themselves on and off campus. When a student’s conduct violates one or more of these provisions
it may be necessary to report that behavior to campus officials by filling out, and submitting a Student Conduct Incident Report (SCIR). This will begin a process to: (1) stop
the behavior, (2) prevent it from happening again, and (3) to remedy the problem. The SCIR can be accessed from the link below:
When filling out a report, it is important to provide details about the incident such as what the student said, tone of voice, body language, how you felt by the student’s
behavior. When there is a witness(s), please list each in the narrative section by name, and if possible, student ID.
Once the report has been submitted, it will be sent to the office of the Associate Dean of Student Development. The report will be reviewed and a determination will be made on how
to proceed. Generally, incidents that are deemed minor violations, a student may be warned and directed to submit a researched paper on how to better address conflict in the future.
When more serious violations occur, the student may appear before a Student Conduct Board or Administrative Hearing Panel made up of SCC staff and faculty. When a student is
found responsible the sanctions that can be imposed range from a warning to expulsion. Taking punitive action is, at times, unavoidable. However, the intent of the student conduct
process is to educate.
