                                       STUDENT RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES


     Students at Oglala Lakota College have the right to the highest quality education possible and to a fair and
     just treatment by all departments of this college.  Students records and transcripts are confidential.
     Students have the right to a timely and accurate financial statement and billing.

     Students are to be treated with respect and to be fairly graded.  Students can participate in the governance
     of OLC by active involvement in their local student organization and boards, Piya Wiconi Okolakiciye and may
     visit any College Board meetings.  Students have the right to appeal any actions against them through the
     grievance procedures outlined in the policy manual.


     Oglala Lakota College is obligated to provide students with the best possible environment, instructors,
     curriculum and resources for your education.  However, the responsibility for the quality of learning is
     that of the students.  It is the student's responsibility to be in class, or to make arrangements for
     obtaining the information if he/she must miss a class.

     It is the student's responsibility to go to class prepared, to have the needed materials, to have completed
     required assignments, to be ready to learn.  It is the student's responsibility to drop a class if they can
     no longer continue.  It is the responsibility of the student to let the instructor/counselor know when
     information is not clearly understood or extra help is needed.  It is the student's responsibility to study
     the class material outside the classroom; learning is an active process and cannot be obtained by passively
     listening to a lecture.

     At OLC, the student has a wide range of rights which are stated and protected by the policy manual.  These
     rights are to ensure the student access to a quality education.  Quality learning is only possible when the
     student accepts his/her responsibilities.  Learning is the role of the student.  The college's role is to
     assist the student in the process of learning.  Together we can build a great future for you and the Lakota
