Discrimination and Sexual Harassment

LDS Business College does not allow unlawful discrimination on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, veteran status, or disability. This includes unlawful sexual harassment, which violates College standards and state and federal laws and may be grounds for discipline. Persons who believe they have been the subject of discrimination or harassment should report the circumstances to the College's Title IX Coordinator. Anonymous reports can also be made through EthicsPoint, which can be found on the College's Title IX webpage. 

Classroom Conduct

Classroom Protocol: Students are expected to attend class regularly, complete assignments by due dates, come to class prepared to participate actively and constructively, and display a professional attitude. Failure to perform may affect final grades.
Disruptive Behavior: Students are encouraged to express their views in class relevant to subject matter. Such expression is necessary to the educational process. However, students do not have the right to impinge on the freedom of the instructor to teach, or on the rights of other students to learn. (Click here for more detail.)
Academic Honesty: Students are expected to be honest and to help others fulfill the same responsibility. All forms of academic dishonesty are unacceptable behavior. (Click here for more detail.)
Children on Campus: Children may not attend class, may not be present in computer labs, and may not be left unattended in College areas. If students bring children to campus (other than to conduct short business matters), they will be asked to leave.

Waiver of Risk

Some courses at the College require travel or may involve risk. Enrollment in such courses is voluntary and students should not take these courses unless they are prepared to assume the risk involved. By choosing to participate, students agree not to hold LDS Business College or its faculty and staff liable. LDS Business College also disclaims liability of any kind for injury or illness of students as a result of participation in student activities connected with the College. The College makes every reasonable effort to provide safe conditions for all courses and student activities.

Grievance Procedure

Students with a grievance relating to academic, student services, and/or financial matters should visit with the Dean of Students. Challenges regarding issued grades must be initiated no later than 45 calendar days following the last day of the semester in which the grade was issued.

Firearms and Weapons Policy

LDS Business College does not allow weapons on campus property, even when granted a civil permit to carry one. Weapons, defined as firearms or weapons, include any device that can expel a projectile, knives that are longer than 3 ½ inches and/or is a multi-edge blade, explosives, or other items that in their intended use are capable of inflicting serious injury or damaging property. Facsimiles of firearms or dangerous and destructive weapons are also prohibited. Any replicas of weapons on campus property are also prohibited.  Weapons that are illegally purchased, illegally owned, or illegally stored or against landlord policies are prohibited.  Because these items pose a clear risk to the persons and property on the LDS Business College campus, violation of this policy may result in immediate suspension (separation) or ban. Suspected violations of this policy should be reported immediately to campus security (dial 2-2771 from on-campus college phones or 801.240.2771).
No one except law enforcement officers of either the State of Utah or of a Federal Law Enforcement Agency shall be permitted to possess or carry firearms or other weapons, concealed or not concealed, with or without a concealed weapons permit, while upon properties owned or controlled by LDS Business College without specific written permission from the Church Security Department (CSD).
Campus security officers may carry weapons upon those terms established by CSD. Campus employees who must use knives in the performance of their job responsibilities may do so.

Social Security Number

Students who choose not to report their social security numbers will not be able to apply for financial aid or be sent 1098T tax forms. This is primarily due to the DOE requiring social security numbers on financial aid applications and the IRS requiring social security numbers on the 1098T form.
