2013-2014 Student Handbook [ARCHIVED]
2013-2014 Student Handbook
The Temple College Student Handbook is a source of information which details the many services, resources, and activities available at Temple College. The handbook is designed for use as a reminder to returning students and as a guide for new students.
It is a “rulebook,” a source of information provided to help you understand what is expected of you as a student and what is expected of your peers and Temple College faculty and staff.
The Handbook is not intended to be comprehensive. Instead, vital information is presented, and, when necessary, the Handbook refers to other publications that can provide more detailed information (i.e., the Temple College website, located at www.templejc.edu.) Future changes may supersede policies published herein.
Policies are subject to change. Please refer to www.templejc.edu for the most current policy information.
Student Right-to-Know and Campus Security Act of 1990 (20 U.S.C. § 1092)
The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (Clery Act), as a part of the Higher Education Act of 1965, is a federal law that requires colleges and universities to disclose certain timely and annual information about campus crime and security policies. All public and private post-secondary educational institutions participating in federal student aid programs are required to comply with this law. The law, originally enacted by Congress in 1990 as the Campus Security Act, was initiated by Howard and Connie Clery after their daughter Jeanne was tragically murdered at Lehigh University in 1986. Amendments to the Act in 1998 renamed it in memory of Jeanne Clery.
The Clery Act requires colleges and universities to publish an annual report every year by October 1 that contains three years of crime statistics and certain policy statements including sexual assault policies, which assure basic victims’ right, the law enforcement authority of campus police, and where the students should go to report crimes. The complete text of the Clery Act and the U.S. Department of Education regulations are available on the Security On Campus, Inc. website at www.campussafety.org.
