Student Code of Conduct


We strive to provide a safe and supportive learning environment that promotes teaching, learning, and student success.


The Student Code of Conduct’s goal is to provide a precise set of expectations to students and, at the same time, offer the assurance that all students will be afforded fair and reasonable treatment in matters involving alleged or determined violations of the Student Code of Conduct.

Accountability – Willingness to accept responsibility or to account for one’s actions

Civility – Be respectful. Value the dignity of each person and honor the property of others

Trust – Reliance on the integrity, ability, or character of a person or thing


The Student Code of Conduct and the student conduct process apply to individual students and all College-affiliated student organizations. The College considers an individual to be a student when an offer of admission has been extended and thereafter as long as the student has a continuing educational interest in the College.

A student conduct violation occurs when a documentable incident occurs within the bounds of one of the College’s campuses, during a college-sponsored event, on social media, or while engaging in activities (educational or otherwise) as a result of a student’s academic pursuits with the College. All allegations of student conduct violations are subject to a systematic and thorough investigation, including a formal Student Conduct Panel Hearing. Communication with students will be via their official CTC student email account.

Know the Code 

Students must familiarize themselves with the Student Code of Conduct. It is the student’s responsibility to know the policies and guidelines of the College.

Student Code of Conduct Process

Social Media Policy

Academic Misconduct is stated in the course syllabus and the college catalog.

***Faculty – If there has been a violation of academic integrity, submit a Student Code of Conduct Report.


A grievance is a concern with the College brought forth by a student, staff, faculty member, or community member. It is a formal complaint that is investigated, mediated, and resolved by the Student Conduct Officer. Should a complaint need to be routed to an appropriate office for further investigation, the Student Conduct Officer facilitates this exchange. All information and supporting documentation concerning a grievance are kept on file by the College. Please note, academic-related grievances will be routed to the associate dean or dean of that department.

Frequently Asked Questions

Chattahoochee Technical College wishes to resolve all student grievances, complaints, and concerns in an expeditious, fair, and amicable manner. If a resolution is not reached at the institution level, or if you believe that the nature of the complaint or its impact on the system as a whole warrants an immediate review by the Technical College System of Georgia (TCSG) administration, please complete the complaint form

Students residing outside of the state of Georgia who are taking an online course who find the Grievance Process outlined above does not satisfactorily resolve a complaint may submit the complaint to TCSG using the Program Integrity Complaint Form.

A student may also appeal to the Georgia Nonpublic Postsecondary Education Commission (GNPEC) if the institution’s and TCSG’s resolution is not satisfactory. Students must ensure they have followed the school’s process prior to submitting to either TCSG or GNPEC.
