Student Conduct & Discipline

He/she is expected to generate lively academic and non academic activities, which are in conformity to the Islamic injunctions of haqooq-ullah and haqooq-ul-ibad. His/her efforts must be aimed at developing a kinship amongst the student community to reap the rich harvest of fraternity for years to come.
At SSCIT any deviation from prevalent norms of discipline is not taken lightly. The students are expected to charter a safe and disciplined course so that they could pursue their studies without any let or hindrance and find enough time for their co-curriculum activities to harness their energies in the right channel. The modern technical education, aimed to enrich Islamic values and character qualities coupled with active co-curricular activities is perceived as a recipe for the development of worthy leaders of tomorrow.
The Institute reserves the right to take necessary and appropriate actions to protect the safety and well being of the campus community. Actions considered inimical to the Institute and subject to discipline, fall into the categories of academic and non academic misconduct. The Student Code of Conduct clearly defines these expectations and outlines the adjudication process. The purpose of the Student Code of Conduct is to educate all members of the SSCIT community and to maintain an environment conducive to academic excellence. If there is a complaint of unprofessional conduct regarding a student, the Registrar Office can suspend the student immediately and refer the case to the Disciplinary Committee.
Intellectual/academic work in every discipline involves the use of others' thoughts, work, and experimental results, published and unpublished. Academic honesty requires that such use be frankly and fully acknowledged. Failing to make such acknowledgment constitutes academic dishonesty. This policy is designed to make clear, the seriousness of the institute's commitment to academic honesty.
Taking words, ideas, figures, or materials from other sources and presenting them as one's own without acknowledging the source is called plagiarism. Any failure to accurately and completely document all uses of source materials in an academic exercise like project assignments or research work constitutes plagiarism and academic dishonesty.
Penalties for Academic Dishonesty
Students found guilty of academic dishonesty will be subject to disciplinary action, the severity of which will depend upon the seriousness of the offence and may include, but not limited to, cancellation of a part or the whole of the attempted paper, assignment of an "F" Grade in that course, cancellation of registration in that semester or even dismissal from the program.
Class Room Behavior
The primary responsibility for managing the class room environments rests with the instructor. Students causing disruption in the class may be directed to leave the class for the remaining period. Depending upon the seriousness of the matter the instructor may also file a complaint with the Chairman against the student. The Chairman may deal with the case himself, impose additional fine or extend suspension from class or forward the case to the Discipline Committee.
