Policies & Procedures

CCV Newport
CCV has created policies to set the expectations, rights, and responsibilities of students, faculty, and staff. The policies explain what you need to know and do in specific situations. Policies, by their very nature, use formal language and often reference other policies. The most pertinent student policies are linked here. If you have questions about any policy, feel free to contact your local CCV office or contact us.

CCV policies and procedures apply to all CCV students, employees, and visitors. Additionally, the CCV community should be aware of and must comply with Vermont State College System (VSCS) policies and procedures. In case of any contradiction between CCV and VSCS policies, the VSCS policies and procedures take precedence.

CCV Non-Discrimination Statement
CCV is committed to non-discrimination in its learning and working environments for all persons. All educational and employment opportunities at CCV are offered without regard to race, creed, color, national origin, marital status, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, veteran status, or any other category protected by law. CCV is an equal opportunity employer. Auxiliary aids and services are available upon request to individuals with disabilities.
