Northland Pioneer College offers each of its students the
freedom to learn and to enjoy the benefits and rewards of college life. In return, the
College expects each student to assume the responsibilities that accompany these freedoms.
In accordance with the laws enacted by the Arizona State Legislature and the Arizona State
Board of Directors for Community Colleges, the NPC District Board has adopted a code of
student conduct and discipline. The Vice President for Student Services will coordinate
and administer student discipline within the guidelines established by the College through
its governance structure. The final decision in cases of serious disciplinary (suspension,
dismissal, and expulsion) action, as well as appeal by students of lesser disciplinary
action, will rest with the College administration as outlined in the College's Policy and
Procedures Manual, Procedure #2625.
