Student Conduct

What is Expected of Students: Policies and Requirements for college students

Remember, you are a college student now!

Dual credit students are required to follow all Brookhaven College policies and procedures with regard to conduct and academic standards and to abide by Brookhaven College Student Rights and Responsibilities. Some policies and procedures that may affect you are outlined below.

Withdrawing From Class

You may withdraw from a Brookhaven College class after the semester has started, but you must do so through your high school advisor. Brookhaven College does not automatically withdraw students who choose to stop attending class. Students who fail to officially withdraw will receive a failing or incomplete grade in the course.

Check with your high school counselor before withdrawing from a dual credit course as this may affect your high school schedule and graduation plan.

Information Disclosure

You are covered under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, FERPA, which prohibits Brookhaven College from disclosing certain information to anyone, including parents, without your written consent.

Required Attendance

You are required to abide by the college’s academic calendar, which may vary from that of your high school. Brookhaven College does not differentiate between dual credit students and their college peers; all students should make the necessary time commitment required of their class. 

Missing Brookhaven College dual credit classes to attend high school related events such as pep-rallies and field trips are not considered excused absences. If you anticipate an absence, please consult with your Brookhaven College professor for appropriate arrangements.

Statement on Scholastic Dishonesty

Acts prohibited by the college for which discipline may be administered include scholastic dishonesty, including but not limited to, cheating on an exam or quiz, plagiarizing and unauthorized collaboration with another in preparing outside work. Academic work submitted by students shall be the result of their thought, work, research or self-expression. Academic work is defined as, but not limited to, tests or quizzes, whether taken electronically or on paper; projects, either individual or group; classroom presentations; and homework.
