Communicable Diseases and Blood-Borne Pathogens
If you have a chronic communicable disease(s), you may attend college when, through reasonable accommodation, the risk of transmission of the disease and/or the risk of further injury to the student is sufficiently remote, in such setting so as to be outweighed by the detrimental effects resulting from the student's exclusion from the college.
Board policy: 400/409-Communicable Diseases
Possession or use of firearms – concealed or in sight – or any explosives, dangerous chemicals or other weapons are prohibited on college property and at college-sponsored or supervised functions.
