Student Code of Conduct and Student Hearing Board

The following policies are designed for the general well-being of all members of the College community.  Violations of the Student Code of Conduct may result in remedial action against the student violator and in sanctions being imposed as hereinafter provided.  The Student Code of Conduct is also in effect off-campus when students are in attendance at a function sponsored by the College, Associated Student Body or other college-affiliated groups, if the offense constitutes a violation of Title IX, or if students are otherwise participating in a college sponsored activity including sporting events and home stay.  These could include dances, social events, club activities, athletic events, educational pursuits, internships, trips, or other college related experiences. 

 The term “student” includes all persons matriculating at Lewis-Clark State College, both full-time and part-time, pursuing undergraduate, non-degree, or non-credit studies who are:

  1. currently enrolled;
  1. accepted for admission or readmission;
  2. enrolled in a prior semester or summer session and who are eligible to continue enrollment in the semester or summer session that immediately follows;
  3. not officially enrolled for a particular term but who have a continuing relationship with the College;
  4. suspended from enrollment for prohibited conduct that occurred while the individual was a student at the College; or
  5. currently using college-owned or college-managed facilities or property in connection with LCSC sponsored academic activities.

The Student Code of Conduct may also be applied to off-campus student behavior even when such behavior does not occur at or with a college-affiliated function, activity or group and does not constitute a violation of Title IX when the administration determines at its discretion that the off-campus conduct affects a substantial school/college interest.  A substantial school/college interest is defined to include:

  1. Any action that could constitute a criminal offense as defined by federal or state law.  This includes, but is not limited to, allegations of single or repeat violations of any local, state or federal law in the municipality where the school/college is located;
  2. Any situation where it appears that the student may present a danger or threat to the health or safety of him/herself or others;
  3. Any situation that significantly disrupts the rights, property or achievements of self or others or significantly breaches the peace and/or causes social disorder.
