Administrative Policies

Enrollment at Nichols College implies full acceptance of all college policies and regulations, including those having to do with conduct.

The college, in order to safeguard its scholarship and its moral atmosphere, reserves the right to dismiss any student whose presence is deemed detrimental. In such instances there will be no financial adjustments.

Insults, rudeness, or obscenities, either written or oral, directed at any member of the college community are specifically prohibited. Students or other college personnel engaging in such activity may expect to be separated from the college.

As an institution of higher learning committed to providing the most constructive atmosphere possible for academic and personal advancement, Nichols College is particularly concerned about conduct such as sexual harassment. The college will not tolerate such conduct, either by students or by members of the faculty, administration, or staff; any person found to have engaged in such conduct will be subject to appropriate discipline, up to and including expulsion from the Nichols College community.

In keeping with standards of academic ethics, Nichols College requires students and employees to uphold the copyright privileges of software vendors and to honor license agreements supplied with each software package used. The appropriate procedures for copying software, when permitted, are covered under U.S. copyright law.

In this community of learning, willful disruption of the educational process, destruction of property, and interference with the rights of other members of the community will not be permitted. There will be prompt and appropriate action against the person or persons responsible. Students, faculty, administrators, and employees who are not in agreement with this basic philosophy are urged to sever their ties with the college.
