Welcome to Morrisville State College Judicial Affairs. It is the duty of this office to adjudicate cases of alleged violations of the Student Code of Conduct which is contained in the Student Handbook.
MSC is a college community established for educational purposes and like any other community depends upon rules for its orderly existence. Students may be disciplined for failing to abide by the Student Code of Conduct. Individuals are expected to assume responsibility for their behavior and for that of the groups to which they belong. Students of the MSC community are expected to abide by local, State and Federal laws. The college will provide no sanctuary for those who violate such laws. While most College Judicial actions are the result of violations to the Student Code of Conduct or other college policy on college-owned/operated property, the institution reserves the right to discipline members of its student body for infractions of local, state or federal laws which occur beyond college-owned/operated property, if it is determined by the Dean of Students that the individual(s) allegedly involved in such incidents pose a potential threat to safety of others or to the integrity of the educational function of the college.
The purpose of the Student Code of Conduct is to outline behavioral expectations, and to provide an explanation of the process involved for responding to allegations of student misconduct, as well as detailing what actions the college shall take in dealing with policy violations. All students attending MSC agree to be governed by this Student Code of Conduct, as well as other college policies. The college, through the Judicial Affairs System, maintains authority to impose sanctions for behaviors that violate the Student Code of Conduct. All students at MSC have access to the Student Code of Conduct which is contained in the Student Handbook and is available for viewing and printing on the college website. A printed copy of the Student Handbook can be obtained by request in the Dean of Students Office.
