Student Rights and Responsibilities
Know Your Rights and Responsibilities
At Coastal Bend College, students have rights and responsibilities with which they should familiarize themselves. Students have the right for example to file a complaint, to access their records, and to report a student code of conduct violation against themselves or others. Students’ responsibilities include following a code of conduct that is conducive to a productive learning environment. These rights and responsibilities are provided to assure students are treated fairly. Many of these rights and responsibilities are linked below. Others may be found in the college’s policy manual and in the catalog which contains the student handbook. For assistance in understanding or initiating any of the processes described, please contact the Dean of Student Services at 361-354-2301.
