Rules of Conduct
Prescott College expects all members of its community to act reasonably, maturely, and appropriately at all times, both on and off campus. Prescott College claims off-campus jurisdiction when enforcing its disciplinary policy. Students may be accountable to both civil authorities and the College for acts that violate the law, or rules and policies outlined in the handbook.
