Student Code of Conduct

It is the responsibility of Student Affairs to advance

the mission of MCC and to administer the Student

Code of Conduct.

Academic Code of Conduct

MCC promotes the importance of honest academic

behavior. Students are expected to demonstrate integrity,

honor and responsibility and recognize the importance of

being accountable for their academic behavior.

Non-Academic/Behavior Code of Conduct

MCC respects the rights of faculty to teach and students

to learn. Maintenance of these rights require classroom

conditions that do not impede the learning process.

Classroom behavior that seriously interferes with either

the instructor’s ability to conduct the class or the ability of

other students to profit from the instructional program will

not be tolerated.

In order to maintain a respectful and safe learning

environment, students are expected to familiarize

themselves with the Student Code of Conduct. The code
