As a member institution of the North Carolina Community College system, Catawba Valley Community College recognizes students' rights as established within state and federal statutes. The College also recognizes various student rights and responsibilities as defined and established within CVCC Policies. It is important that all students read and become familiar with CVCC Policies, Procedures and this Student Resource Guide in order to understand student rights and responsibilities. Students should refer to Quick Links on MyCVCC Portal as an additional source of information.

CVCC is designated a public place and therefore, you may be photographed at sporting events, student government events, classrooms, labs, campus buildings, public places or other campus related activities on any of the sites associated with CVCC. Your likeness may appear in any CVCC communication or on social media.
It is the responsibility of each student enrolled in one or more classes to understand the contents of this Student Resource Guide. A printed copy of the Student Resource Guide is available upon request in Student Services. Per the College Catalog, a person is classified as a student when admission requirements are met and registration for classes has occurred that cause:
- tuition and fees to be paid (or encumbered by waiver, financial aid, third party payment, etc.) and
- the person enters and attends the class(es).
A person continues to be a student by attending class and making progress toward completion of the course objectives. A person is no longer a student in a particular class when she or he has exceeded the number of absences allowed in the class or is graded with a Withdrawal Passing (WP). If this occurs in all classes during a particular semester, the person is no longer a student for that semester at the point in time when the last transaction occurred. A person is a visitor when not a student. Students are entitled to due process. Visitors are not afforded due process.
The CVCC Policy and Procedures manual is currently under construction. The Web links noted as "under construction" will be provided at a later time.
