Expected to behave responsibly at all times. The College expects and trusts you to be honest in your studio, classroom, and community endeavors. This honor system is the basis for the College’s operations and activities.

What is unacceptable behavior?
The Code of Conduct has been established to explain what constitutes unacceptable behavior, the procedures regarding discipline, and the student’s responsibilities as a member of the Otis College community. The Code of Conduct can be found in The Hoot on the Student Handbook page.

How do I report a Conduct Violation?*
Report all violations using the Student Incident Report Form   *C.E. students should report all violations to the Dean of Continuing Education.

What is an interim suspension?
An interim suspension may be imposed by the Assistant Dean and/or the Dean of Student Affairs or a designee pending disciplinary proceedings or medical evaluation. An interim suspension becomes immediately effective without prior notice whenever there is evidence that the continued presence of the student on the College campus poses a substantial threat to others or to the stability and continuance of normal College functions.
An interim suspension or dismissal from a C.E. class or program may be imposed by the Dean of Continuing Education without prior notice.
