The Dean of Students Office protects the integrity and safety of the institution by ensuring:

  • the Student Code of Conduct is upheld by the student body;
  • students are able to learn and faculty are able to teach in a comfortable, safe environment that is free from disruptions;
  • students are held accountable for their behavior;
  • students' rights are upheld and Collin College policies and procedures are followed;
  • the academic integrity of the institution is maintained; and
  • students involved in the disciplinary process are treated in a fair and consistent manner.
Students' Rights and Responsibilities:

As stated in the Student Code of Conduct, "Collin College expects its students to conduct themselves in a manner that reflects credit upon the institution they represent" (2018-2019 Student Handbook, p. 85). Therefore, it is each student's responsibility to be familiar with the Student Code of Conduct, which can be found in the current student handbook. All students are expected to read and comply with the Student Code of Conduct
