The Board of Trustees, administration, faculty, and staff recognize the right of a Kaskaskia College student, as member of the college community, to the constitutionally guaranteed freedoms of speech, assembly, and peaceful association, which shall be diligently protected.  Further, KC students have the right to access and participate in the academic and non-academic opportunities offered by the College and be informed regarding access to these opportunities.  The College guards these rights on behalf of all persons associated with the institution and does not tolerate actions by any individual or group that would seek to restrict the appropriate freedoms of any individual or group.

It is the responsibility of students to follow the College’s Code of Conduct and observe all College regulations in a manner that does not impose on the rights of other students, faculty, or staff.  The student is responsible for complying with federal, state, and/or municipal constitutions and statutes, as well as the rules and regulations of the College.  Knowing and observing the requirements of his/her curriculum and the rules governing academic work is the student’s responsibility.  The ultimate responsibility for meeting the requirements for graduation rests with the student. 

Disciplinary actions against students will be conducted with assurance of guaranteed due process and a speedy and fair hearing before the appropriate individual and/or committees.  Certain decisions of individuals and/or committees, charged with disciplinary responsibilities, may be appealed through the appropriate process and channels.  Procedures outlining the disciplinary processes for non-compliance with student responsibilities outlined in the Student Code of Conduct are included online at www.kaskaskia.edu appearing in the Student Handbook, and copies of those procedures and guidelines are available through the Vice President of Student Services Office.
