Once a person becomes a student and, therefore, a member of the College community, the student is asked to abide by the administrative practices of the school. Failure to abide by these and other administrative policies may result in disciplinary action against the student or group responsible for the violation. School policies are published in many different forms such as the MCLA Catalog, the Resident Student Handbook, and by different offices including the Aramark Dining Services, the Student Records, Computer Support Services, IGC Standards and Conditions for Affiliation, and business offices. Because these policies are rather extensive in number, students are advised to inquire of the staff of the College about its policies before they invest time, money or material in any endeavor. Students are specifically advised that College policies exist regarding:
A. Building Hours, Use of Facilities, Equipment, and Vehicles - Students must abide by the check‑in and check‑out procedures for College housing and the hours posted for the use of other buildings and events. Likewise, College facilities, equipment, and vehicles are provided for particular uses reflected in the policies governing the use of these facilities, equipment, and vehicles; therefore, any misuse is prohibited. At all times, students are expected to behave in appropriate ways on the campus especially in the Centennial Room, Fitness Center, Pool, Computer Labs, etc.
B. College Logo - No one may use the name of the College, its logo, seal, trademarks or other forms of official representation in ways suggesting they are affiliated with, endorsed by or represent the College without authority granted to them by the College.
C. Failure to Comply with an Official Request - Students are expected to make reasonable efforts to comply with the requests of College staff and/or designees whenever these College personnel are acting in the performance of their job responsibilities.
D. Guests - Students, by inviting or allowing a guest to come to the College, assume responsibility for their guest's behavior while they are on the campus or involved in a College-sponsored event. The College reserves the right to have its staff ask any person who is not a member of the College community to leave the buildings and/or grounds of the College, and to stay away from such areas, if the presence of such a person is judged to be the cause of disruption of the fundamental operations of the school or if such a person violates the policies of the school.
E. ID Cards - Students must have in their possession at all times a valid student identification card and are required to identify the student upon the request of any staff member. These cards and their use are not transferable.
F. Keys - Unauthorized possession or use of keys for College buildings, facilities, vehicles, and/or equipment is prohibited. Likewise, no key belonging to the College may be reproduced or loaned to any other person without specific written permission from the Department of Public Safety.
G. Motor Vehicle Registration and Parking - Students who possess a motor vehicle must properly register it with the Department of Public Safety. Students are expected to follow all parking regulations.
H. Solicitations - Students should receive approval from the Student Affairs Office for any solicitation to be conducted on campus or any solicitations to be made off campus in which the College's name will be used.
I. Use of Computing and Other Electronic Resources - The unauthorized use of computing resources is prohibited including, but not limited to, duplication of copyrighted material, unauthorized access to or alteration of records, unauthorized use of electronic communication equipment or networks, and assisting others in any of these actions either intentionally or unintentionally. Students are expected to use campus computer and electronic resources (such as e‑mail, voice mail, computers, programs, and software) in responsible ways and in a manner consistent with the mission of the College.
