Sampson Community College reserves the right to maintain a safe and orderly educational environment. Therefore, when in the judgment of College officials a student’s conduct disrupts or threatens to disrupt the sanctity of the community; appropriate disciplinary action will be taken. All students are expected to conduct themselves in accordance with generally accepted standards of scholarship and morality while on campus and when attending college-sponsored events or field trips. The purpose of this code is not to restrict student rights but to protect the rights of individuals and to ensure the integrity of the institution’s academic programs. The code of conduct applies to all currently enrolled students participating in any of the programs offered by the college. Officers of the Clinton Police Department will enforce criminal laws on the college campus.
