Student Conduct And Discipline
CF has established regulations governing student conduct which are considered necessary to preserve and maintain an environment conducive to learning, to ensure the safety and welfare of members of the College community, to encourage students in the development and practice of good citizenship and self-discipline, and to protect property and equipment of the College. The Code of Student Conduct is published in the CF Student Handbook and includes information on student records, rights and responsibilities, definition of terms, conduct hearing procedures, sanctions, suspensions, and appeals. The Student Code of Conduct may also be found in the CF Administrative Procedures, Policy #7.05.
Each student, by registration, assumes the responsibility to become familiar with and to abide by College regulations and acceptable standards of conduct. Students who fail to observe college regulations or to maintain acceptable standards of personal conduct on the campus or at College sponsored functions or facilities are subject to disciplinary action. For questions or further information on student conduct you may contact the Dean of Student Services in building 5, room 205 or telephone 352-854-2322 ext. 1430.
Admission of Convicted felons with violent criminal history, sexual offends, sexual predators
The College currently requires criminal background information through the regular admissions process. Additionally, local law enforcement agencies frequently notify the College that a convicted felon with a violent criminal history is enrolled or is planning to enroll at the College.
If the individual is classified as a convicted felon with a violent criminal history or a sexual offender and has applied or is already in attendance the individual will be notified, directed to provide specific documents relating to his/her felony (s), and meet with the Special Admissions Committee (SAC). The SAC will determine if the individual is allowed to attend college and conditions under which that attendance is granted. An individual classified as a sexual predator will not be admitted to the College. Further details on this process and conditions, and Committee membership may be found in the CF Administrative Procedures, Policy 7.10. You may also contact the Dean of Student Services in building 5, room 205 or telephone 352-854-2322 ext. 1430
Threat Assessment Team
The purpose of the Threat Assessment Team (TAT) is to investigate potential risks to the College community by students who have behaved or acted in ways that
raise serious safety concerns. Activities include investigating reports that give rise to concerns, evaluating whether the behavior constitutes a direct threat and make objective assessment of a student’s ability to safely participate in college. Investigations and hearing are conducted on all reports involving student behavior that may pose potential risk or threat to the College. Further details on TAT may be found in the CF Administrative Procedure- Threat Assessment Team. You may also contact the Dean of Student Services in building 5, room 205 or telephone 352-854-2322 ext. 1430.
