Definitions in the Code of Conduct

The term "student" refers to any person taking or auditing any courses at Vermont Technical College. Any course registration, whether in a non-degree or degree seeking program characterizes the person as a "student" from the point of registration to the completion of course of study. Persons who are not officially enrolled for a particular term but who have clearly manifested intent to return to Vermont Technical College as a student are considered "students." Examples include, but are not limited to, students who are enrolled, but not taking classes due to an academic break or students taking a medical or other personal leave.

The term behavior means conduct and expression.

The term "member of the College community" , means Vermont State College system trustees, academic, nonacademic and administrative staff, students and other persons while such other persons are on College property or at a College function.

Students who are believed to have assisted in violating any provision of the Code of Conduct may be charged with a violation to the same extent as those persons committing a violation. Attempts to violate this Code, including unsuccessful attempts, are prohibited and are subject to the same response under this Code as are actual violations.
