Student Rights and Responsibilities

Student Responsibilities

Students are held responsible for reading and understanding the academic, administrative, and disciplinary policies or regulations and for understanding the Liberal Arts Core curriculum as published in the catalog when they matriculate. They are held responsible for the requirements of a major in effect at the time they officially declare a major. If students change majors, they are responsible for the requirements of the major in effect when they officially change majors.

Graduation Requirements

Requirements for graduation as well as those for various majors and minors may change after students matriculate at The College of Idaho. Such changes will not be retroactive, although students will have the option to elect to meet the new requirements, if desired. Exceptions may be necessary when changes in professional certification or licensure standards mandate such changes in requirements.

Confidentiality of Records

In accordance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, P.L. 93-380, as amended by P.L. 92-318, eligible students may review personal educational records, have the opportunity to correct information in those records, and limit disclosure of information from those records. For procedures, contact the Registrar's Office.

Dismissal and Suspension

The College of Idaho reserves the right, and by matriculation the student acknowledges that right, to dismiss or suspend any student whose conduct is unacceptable by college standards.

Notice of Non-Discriminatory Policy

The College of Idaho admits students of any race, age, sex, color, national and ethnic origin, and religion to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school.  It does not discriminate on the basis of race, age, sex, color, national and ethnic origin, and religion in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.
