Our Campus Culture
TCC's District Board of Trustees, Faculty, and Staff value a campus that is a place of learning, safety, shared responsibility, and harmony. To ensure this, TCC reserves the right to remove any person who acts to disrupt or prevent the College's lawful missions, processes, or activities.
The Faculty, Staff, and Students foster mutual respect and high regard for the life and property of the College. All members of the educational community will share a respect for the law and follow the highest ethical and moral standards of conduct.
In the event that these high standards are not self-enforced, the College will take action to protect its interests. Student conduct on campus and at off-campus-sponsored activities and facilities is expected to be supportive of these interests.
The disciplinary function at TCC is seen as a tool for guiding and teaching. Since unfavorable behavior is often symptomatic of attitudes, misconceptions, and emotional crises, the treatment of these symptoms is done through education and rehabilitative activities.
Severe disciplinary action against a student, such as suspension or expulsion, is considered and invoked only when other remedies fail. Even in the case of irrevocable expulsion for misconduct, the process will not be considered punitive in the criminal sense.
The Behavioral Intervention Team engages in a proactive, objective, and collaborative approach to identify, assess, and mitigate risks associated with students, faculty, staff, and visitors exhibiting concerning behaviors.Connect with BIT

Student Code of Conduct
As part of the Tallahassee Community College family - students, faculty, and staff - I hereby commit to upholding the highest standards of academic honesty, personal integrity, and respect for myself and others as essential components of academic and personal growth.
Student Code of Conduct
Tallahassee Community College has established regulations that are considered necessary to preserve and maintain an environment conducive to learning, to insure the safety and welfare of members of the College community, to encourage students in the development and practice of good citizenship and self-discipline, and to protect property and equipment of the College.

Along with Faculty and Students, the Office of Student Conduct assumes responsibility to help create and maintain a campus environment that supports effective instruction and enhances student learning.
In a community, if learners, it is expected that students will conduct themselves in an orderly manner. However, when student misconduct does occur, corrective action needs to be taken. These guidelines are designed to help faculty members assess disruptive student behavior and determine the appropriate course of action.
Classroom Guidelines For Dealing With Disruptive Behavior
As a student at TCC, it is important for you to understand the active role you play in promoting positive conditions for learning and preventing student disruptions. It is expected that you will work collaboratively with faculty, staff, and peers to help create positive conditions for learning, promote high ethical and moral standards of conduct, and encourage adherence to the Student Code of Conduct.

Be Advised: Hazing
The TCC Student Code of Conduct defines hazing as an act that endangers the mental or physical health or safety of a student, or which destroys or removes public or private property, for the purpose of initiation, admission into, affiliation with, or as a condition for continued membership in, a group or organization. Hazing will not be tolerated at TCC and anyone found to be involved in any act of hazing is grounds for immediate suspension. Your safety as a student is of the utmost importance. If you have been hazed or know of another student that has fallen victim to hazing, please notify the Student Conduct Office and/or the TCC Police Department.
