Disciplinary Actions, Policies, and Procedures
At Southeastern Baptist College there are several areas that warrant disciplinary action by the Administration and Disciplinary Committee. These are related to Attendance and the Rules of Conduct by students in the dormitories as well as on and off campus. Complete details can be found in the Student Handbook.
A three level appeals process has been formed to deal with class attendance matters beginning with the Academic Dean and ending with the Administrative Council. The complete policy details regarding attendance can be found on pages 1-3 of the Student Handbook.
A demerit system is employed and enforced at SBC. Each faculty member and the dorm supervisors are empowered to issue demerits to students for acts of misconduct. There are two levels of misconduct: misdemeanors and serious violations. The complete policy details regarding student conduct requirements and disciplinary actions can be found on pages 7-10 of the Student Handbook.
The Dean of Students is the person who addresses most disciplinary actions. However, in extreme situations involving serious violations the Disciplinary Committee may meet concerning the violation.
It is the desire of Southeastern Baptist College to work with all students to resolve any issues that may arise. We request that any student who is not satisfied with the resolution processes in place and outlined in the Student Handbook to contact us and try once more to resolve any issue with the college. If no resolution is at hand then there are other avenues a student may use to approach any issue.
The Mississippi Commission on College Accreditation is the accrediting agency within the State of Mississippi that accredits Southeastern Baptist College. In order to protect students who may have a complaint against SBC and have exhausted all means available through SBC policy, the MCCA has created a Complaint Process page on it's website to help students understand what options may exist through the MCCA. Also the MCCA provides a Complaint Form that students may download and complete in order to initiate a complaint against the college through the accrediting agency.
