Student Policies

The purpose of BSC's Student Code of Conduct is to support a safe, healthy and inclusive campus community that is conducive to learning where students act with honesty, integrity, civility, and respect for themselves and others. When students choose to attend BSC, they accept the rights and responsibilities of membership in the College’s academic and social community and are expected to accept and adhere to the high standards of personal conduct. Any behavior that interferes with these goals, whether on or off-campus, may constitute a violation of BSC's Student Code of Conduct.
