Blue Ridge Community College (“College”) students assume an obligation to conduct themselves in a manner compatible with the College’s function as an educational institution. The College has adopted basic standards of student conduct. These standards apply to the College campus, College activities including public service functions and other duly authorized or College sponsored activities, either on or off the College premises. When these standards are violated, penalties may be incurred. Consequences for violations include, but are not limited to: warnings, fines, restitution, loss of privileges or access to campus resources, probation, suspension or expulsion. The College reserves the right to withhold academic records or to deny registration for subsequent semesters.
If a student’s behavior simultaneously violates both College regulation and federal, state and/or local laws, the College may take disciplinary action independent of that taken by legal authorities.

Violation of one or more of the following code provisions may result in one of the sanctions described in Procedure 126.96.36.199 – Discipline and Appeal Procedures for Academic Violations and/or Procedure 188.8.131.52 – Discipline and Appeal Procedures for Non-Academic Violations.
