MCC serves more than 50,000 students at its campuses, centers, and satellite locations. In order to maintain a respectful and safe learning environment, students are expected to familiarize themselves with the Student Code of Conduct. The code is accessible on the MCC website, www.mccneb.edu, and by request at any Student Services office. The code was designed to protect the safety and security of the campus environment.
"The choices we make reflect who we are." College is time for learning, inside and outside the classroom. Each member of the campus community—faculty, staff, and students—contributes to the climate of MCC's locations.
- Respect fellow students, staff, and faculty
- Practice honesty
- Be tolerant of differences
- Demonstrate civility
Academic Code of Conduct
MCC acknowledges 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.
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.
Student Conduct Guidelines
Questions regarding academic misconduct should be made to the appropriate academic dean; questions regarding non-academic misconduct should be made to the appropriate campus dean or administrator. Violations of these standards are subject to sanctions as set forth in Procedures Memorandum V-4.
