Students are expected to be mature and responsible in their general behavior. They are expected to attend all classes and to be punctual. After an unexpected absence due to illness or emergency, students are responsible for contacting instructors on their first day back to arrange to make up work. Excessive absenteeism may result in loss of course credit. Excessive is calculated as twice the number of times the class meets each week.
Students are expected to obey national, state, and local laws; respect the rights and privileges of others; be forthright and honest in all their social and academic conduct; and, in general, to conduct themselves in a manner which brings credit to themselves and to the college.
BRTC reserves the right to dismiss any student whose behavior is considered undesirable or harmful to the institution. The administration may dismiss, or suspend, students who have not upheld the social or academic standards of the college, following the due process guidelines. Students who are dismissed or suspended for disciplinary or academic reasons may apply for readmission after a stated period of time set by the administration.
BRTC, at the discretion of the administration, may remove from classes any student who is convicted of a felony, or who is felt to be a threat to the campus community (student body/faculty/staff).
Students, employees, or guests are prohibited from possession of any type of firearm on the campus unless specifically exempted by state law. Offenders are in violation of Arkansas Criminal Code Annotated 5-73-119 through 5-73-122.
No student, employee, or guest may bring any intoxicant or harmful/illegal drug on to the campus, or appear on campus under the influence of such substances. BRTC will not tolerate use, possession, or sale of such substances on campus, or at institutional functions. All first-time and entering transfer students receive a copy of BRTC’s Drug and Campus Security Policy when completing the application process.
