Student Rights, Responsibilities & Policies

Everett Community College follows a number of guidelines that support a civil and respectful environment and provide procedures to assure fair treatment.

EvCC Student LIFE provides the Student Rights & Responsibilities annually, which outlines many of the policies and procedures that support student conduct and institutional responsibilities.

The Student Rights and Responsibilities Code identifies and describes college expectations, students' rights, and outlines the process for resolving disciplinary matters and Code violations. The provisions of the code apply to all students whenever they are on the college campus, in college housing or engaged in college-sponsored activities and functions.
