Code Of Student Conduct And Discipline
Current information regarding student conduct and discipline is available in the NCCC Student Handbook, and at www.neosho.edu. For more information, contact the Dean of Student Services on the Chanute campus or the Dean on the Ottawa campus.
Disciplinary Probation And Dismissal
A student may be placed on disciplinary probation for behavior deemed to be detrimental to the wellbeing of the offending student or the student body, or for the infraction(s) of College rules and regulations. Should disciplinary action be deemed necessary, the student will receive in writing from the Dean of Student Services or Dean for the Ottawa and Online campuses the reason(s) for the disciplinary action and the conditions of the probationary period. For additional information, please refer to the NCCC Student Handbook.
Students may be suspended temporarily or expelled depending on the scope and nature of the infraction(s). During probation, participation in extracurricular activities may not be permitted.
The possession, use, sale, distribution, or manufacture of drugs and/or alcohol on campus by students, staff, or visitors will not be tolerated. Such possession, use, sale, distribution, or manufacture by students may lead to dismissal from school. The possession, use, sale, distribution, or manufacture of drugs and/or alcohol on campus by staff may lead to termination of employment. Students, staff, or visitors involved in the possession, use, sale, distribution, or manufacture of drugs and/or alcohol on campus will be subject to prosecution under appropriate state statutes. Students are urged to be familiar with the Drug-Free Campus Policy available in the office of the Dean of Student Services on the Chanute campus or the assistant the Ottawa campus.
