Student Rights and Responsibilities

It is the responsibility of the College of Lake County (CLC) to provide equal access to its educational opportunities and to prevent interference with those educational opportunities by maintaining an orderly, civil, and safe educational environment.

When students choose to attend CLC they accept the Rights and Responsibilities Policy as members in the college’s academic and social community. Each person has the right and ability to make personal decisions about his or her own conduct. Just as importantly, each person has the responsibility to live with the consequence(s) of his or her decision making.

The Student Rights and Responsibilities Policy describes student rights as well as examples of misconduct inconsistent with the academic environment at CLC. It lists procedures to respond to such behaviors, and details possible sanctions that are intended to educate and safeguard members of the college. If you have any questions about this Policy, please contact the Office of the Associate Vice President, Student Development.
