Student Code & Responsibilities
It is assumed that every student enrolling in Mississippi College agrees to conduct himself or herself in a manner conducive to the highest sort of mental and moral development in keeping with the ideals and traditions of the College. Personal misconduct either on or off the campus by anyone connected with Mississippi College detracts from the Christian witness Mississippi College strives to present to the world and hinders full accomplishment of the mission of the College.
As an institution pledged to the Christian principle of concern for others, the College enunciates a definite position on certain matters. Students who elect to attend the College, realizing its position on such matters, are expected to respect and abide by that position. Students who evidence an unwillingness or inability to conduct themselves in accordance with College standards and any other rules and regulations of the College not specifically listed here, either on or off the campus, shall be subject to disciplinary action.
The faculty, administration, and Student Government Association cooperate in the student judicial process. Student participation in the judicial process is by allowance and not as a delegation of ultimate authority or responsibility. This procedure, it is hoped, will aid the students of Mississippi College to be “judged” by their peers, according to and by the rules, regulations, standards and ideals of this institution, allowing them an opportunity to exercise “self discipline” to the fullest extent possible.
