4.12 Field Trip Participation

Board of Trustee Approval: October 1, 2018
Revised: October 1, 2020

All SCC field trips are considered official college events and are therefore subject to the Participant Code of Conduct available in the Office of the Assistant to the Executive Vice President.

Participants in field trips and college-approved travel must always remember that they are representing Sandhills Community College. They are expected to behave with decorum, upholding and maintaining the college’s reputation through appropriate professional behavior and by respecting others, both in the class and among those with whom they interact during the trip.

Guidelines related to expected behaviors and restrictions shall be covered by the college official(s) taking part in the trip before departing campus.

Failure to uphold the guidelines, policies, and/or procedures or a violation of the Student Code of Conduct may cause a traveler to be sent home immediately from the event or excursion at the traveler’s own expense. The action will be reviewed and, depending upon the severity of the offense, the traveler may be referred to the Associate Vice President of Student Services.
