Students and student organizations charged with violating the Standards of Conduct are entitled to the following rights under the Young Harris College student conduct system:
(1) Notice of the charge(s), an account of the alleged misconduct, a list of witnesses, and notice of the scheduled hearing delivered seventy-two (72) hours before a hearing. The student may request additional time by showing good cause.
(2) Notice of the maximum allowable penalty (i.e., expulsion).
Upon admittance to Young Harris College, students are informed of the standards and expectations associated with entrance into the YHC community. The Student Code of Conduct was adopted to enhance the health and safety of individuals on campus and to promote an atmosphere that is conducive to the educational process.
The Behavioral Intervention Team (BIT) is charged with the task of promoting a safer campus environment by effectively assessing and addressing threatening and/or concerning behavior involving Young Harris College students. BIT receives reports of disruptive, problematic, or concerning behavior; conducts an investigation; and determines the best mechanisms for support, intervention, and response. Due to federal privacy law, outcomes may not always be shared with a reporting party.
