Student Handbook

The overall philosophy of the governing structure at Simpson is the premise that an academic community must have an atmosphere that is conducive to the educational mission of the college. It is the responsibility of all members of the Simpson community to meet the college’s expectations for appropriate behavior and comply with campus policies. As a student, it is important that you are aware of the standards of conduct that have been adopted by Simpson.

This handbook is intended as a general guide for all Simpson College programs and specifically for the Indianola campus. Programs will operate within policies and procedures unless otherwise stated through explicit language in a separate handbook, such as those specifically produced for the non- Indianola campus. While every effort has been made to ensure accuracy in this document, the college retains the right to change procedure and/or policy at any time. The college retains the right to make changes in the academic and social programs as well as operating procedures. All such changes will be effective at times deemed appropriate by the proper institutional authorities and may apply to enrolled as well as prospective students.

Other campus regulations governing the conduct of Simpson students may also be found in the Simpson College Catalog (Academic Policies and Expectations) and the constitution of the Simpson Student Government Association.

Questions regarding the Simpson College Student Handbook and related policies and procedures should be directed to: Office of Student Development, Kent Campus Center 2nd floor, 515-961-1592.
