1. Student Conduct Policies and Procedures

The University admits students with the expectation that they have previously developed acceptable personal standards of conduct and ethics. Admission to Cumberland University carries with it special privileges as well as special responsibilities different from those enjoyed by and/or imposed on non-students. All students, residents, guests, staff, and faculty are expected to abide by the rules and regulations of the University.

A conduct situation occurs when substantive violations of Cumberland University rules, regulations, policies, and guidelines or violations of local, state, and/or federal laws, rules, or regulations are reported to or discovered by appropriate University officials. Conduct procedures will be enforced for all substantiated violations. Student violations of Cumberland University policies, regulations, rules, and guidelines or a violation of local, state, and/or federal laws, rules, or regulations may lead to a non-renewal of or cancellation of current and future financial aid awards and to student conduct sanctions as deemed necessary by appropriate Cumberland University officials. All Cumberland University students must report any and all local, state, or federal arrests and convictions to the Executive Vice President or their designee.

The University reserves the right to readmit or deny readmission to a student who has been involved in on-campus or off-campus violations, particularly where they involve violation of local, state, and/or federal laws, based on individual situations and occurences.

University regulations go into effect when an individual matriculates and continue until the time of graduation or withdrawal. By the act of registration, the student agrees to accept standards and regulations reflected in this document and other publications of the University.
