Standards of Student Conduct


Frank Phillips College students are both citizens and members of the academic community.As citizens, they enjoy the same freedom of speech, peaceful assembly, and right of petition that other citizens enjoy, and as members of the academic community, they are subject to the obligations, which are theirs by virtue of this membership. The college expects its students to conduct themselves in such a way as to reflect upon the institution they represent.


There are four basic standards of conduct required of all students:

1.      They shall assume the obligations of performance and behavior imposed by the College relevant to its lawful missions, process, and functions.

2.      They shall adhere to laws and ordinances of the Nation, the State of Texas, and the community in which they reside.

3.      They shall conduct themselves peaceably in espousing changes they consider necessary.

4.      They shall respect the rights and freedoms of other.


Specific violations which are contrary to these standards include, but are not limited to, the following: violations of civil laws, theft, possession of intoxicants, possession of narcotics or other drugs, excessive absences, scholastic dishonesty, disrespect for constituted authority, threat of any type to cause harm to another person, improper entrance into a residence hall, destruction of College property, hazing, unlawful assembly and other acts out of harmony with the ideals of the institution. Students who witness any violation of a college regulation must report it to a college official. Standards of conduct extend to off-campus activities sponsored by the College as well as other situations in which a studentís behavior is likely to have an adverse effect on the college or educational process.

Students are subject to federal, state, and local laws as well as college regulations and policies. A student is not entitled to greater immunities or privileges before the law than those enjoyed by other citizens generally.
