Statement on Student Rights and Responsibilities

Hiram College subscribes to the spirit of the joint Statement on Student Rights and Responsibilities as promulgated by the American College Personnel Association (ACPA) and the National Association of Student Personnel Administrators (NASPA). The essence of this document is to be clear about the standards to which a Hiram College student is expected to adhere, both academically and socially, and to commit to the basic elements of due process - notice and the opportunity to be heard - in all interactions between the student and the college. This can be found in the Hiram College Student Handbook.
