Pearl River Community College expects appropriate conduct of students at all times.


The student whose actions are disrupting the pursuit of learning and normal classroom activities will be asked by the instructor to refrain from the disrupting behavior. Discourteous or unseemly conduct to other students, instructors, or staff through verbal or written communication are considered a violation of the Student Conduct Policy.  Some examples of misconduct that will not be tolerated include, but are not limited to, disorderly conduct, harassment, verbal abuse, assault, and interference with the educational opportunity of other students.  This type of behavior may result in a student being dismissed from the class, course, or the College and could be referred to the Vice President for Poplarville Campus and Student Services, if on the Poplarville Campus, to the Vice President for Forrest County Campus, or to the Vice President for Hancock Campus. The student’s due process proceeding will be initiated.

Serious offenses should be reported immediately to the Poplarville Campus Police at (601) 403-1300, the Forrest County Campus Police at (601) 554-5513, the Hancock Campus Police at (228) 467-2761, or local law enforcement authorities if teaching at an off-campus site.
