Temporary Leave of Absence

Students who will be absent for more than one week should notify their professors and make arrangements for work assignments.

Holds On Student Records

A hold will be placed on a student’s record by the District or Cashier’s Office for fees and any other financial obligations owed to Cañada College, College of San Mateo, and/or Skyline College. Students are advised to check WebSMART for holds that have been placed on their records. A student’s educational records, including transcripts, will not be released while an outstanding balance remains on their account.

Fines

Fines are assessed for failure to comply promptly with library regulations. Students are also required to pay for careless or unnecessary damage to College property. Students who are delinquent in their financial obligations to the College may not receive grade reports or other records of their work until such delinquencies have been adjusted to the satisfaction of the College authorities.

Field Trip/Excursion Guidelines

Throughout the semester/school year, the District may sponsor voluntary off-campus extracurricular field trips/ excursions. If you choose to participate, be advised that pursuant to California Code of Regulations, Subchapter 5, Section 55450, you have agreed to hold the District, its officers, agents, and employees harmless from any and all liability or claims which may arise out of or in connection with your participation in the activity.

Non-District Sponsored Transportation

Some classes may be conducted off campus. Unless you are specifically advised otherwise, you are responsible for arranging for your own transportation to and from the class site. Although the District may assist in coordinating the transportation and/or recommended travel times, route or caravanning, be advised that the District assumes no liability or responsibility for the transportation, and any person driving a personal vehicle is not an agent of the District.

Policy On Drug-Free Campus

Skyline College, in compliance with the Federal DrugFree Schools and Communities Act Amendments of 1989, prohibits the use, possession, sale or distribution of alcohol, narcotics, dangerous or illegal drugs or other controlled substances on College property or at any function sponsored by the District or Colleges. This policy includes the use of medical marijuana/cannabis.

Students are expected to conduct themselves as responsible citizens and in a manner compatible with the Community College function as an educational institution. Students are subject to civil authority and to all District and College rules and regulations. Students found to be in violation of the drug-free campus policy by manufacturing, distributing, dispensing, possessing or using controlled substances, as defined in California statutes, on any District property will be subject to disciplinary measures up to and including suspension and expulsion.

The College Health Center provides information pertaining to the health risks and effects associated with alcohol and narcotics or other dangerous or illegal drugs. Students may be referred to various outside agencies for enrollment in a drug recovery program.
