Tarrant County College Education
The voters of Tarrant County established the Tarrant County College District in 1965 to serve the local area with a quality affordable education. Five physical campus locations and an eLearning campus pursue Tarrant County College's mission to provide affordable and open access to quality teaching and learning. The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges accredits Tarrant County College as a two-year institution granting associate of arts and associate of science degrees while also preparing students for four-year institutions. Tarrant County College enrolls nearly 50,000 students, drawn from a county population of approximately two million, with Fort Worth at the county's center. Notable alumni include artists, photographers, businessmen, politicians, musicians, illustrators, authors, and actors, proving the value of a Tarrant County College education. You no doubt understood that value when you chose to enroll at the College. Your challenge now is to remember what drove you to enroll and study at the College in the face of your current misconduct challenge. Don't give up on your College education. Respect its value. Meet the challenge now and enjoy the rewards later.
Tarrant County College Discipline
To beat a challenge, you must first get a good reckoning of how big it is. If you face misconduct charges at Tarrant County College, you face a bigger rather than smaller challenge. You need first to recognize that college misconduct charges can threaten school dismissal. That's right: you could lose everything you've invested in your college education and more if you suffer school suspension and expulsion for poorly handling those misconduct charges. You didn't just pursue a Tarrant County College degree to hang on your wall and admire. You likely enrolled at the College to increase your knowledge, skill, job prospects, income, and reputation, and make for a better life and career. School dismissal due to misconduct charges thus doesn't just cost you lost time and tuition. It can cost you those dreams and ambitions of a better future. Dismissal from one school can mean the inability to enroll in another. That's why you should retain national school discipline defense advisor Joseph D. Lento and the Lento Law Firm's student defense team. Get the premier, highly qualified help you need to defend and defeat Tarrant County College misconduct charges.
Defeating Tarrant County College Disciplinary Charges
Facing and overcoming disciplinary charges is possible, even likely, when you retain the best available professional defense advisor representation. Too many students make the mistake of believing that disciplinary charges mean that their college or university has already determined that they've committed misconduct. On the contrary, disciplinary charges mean that the school has received a report or complaint that you may be responsible, just as others may be responsible instead. College misconduct procedures like those at Tarrant County College place the burden of proving misconduct on the disciplinary officials. You are innocent until those officials prove otherwise. National school discipline defense advisor Joseph D. Lento has successfully defended hundreds of students nationwide on all kinds of disciplinary charges. School disciplinary officials make mistakes, as do complaining witnesses. And even for the student who has committed misconduct, severe sanctions like suspension or expulsion may be entirely unnecessary and inappropriate. Advisor Lento has achieved early voluntary dismissal of many disciplinary charges, even valid charges, on reassurances that neither the school nor the accused student would benefit from sanctions. Don't give in to Tarrant County College misconduct charges. Retain advisor Lento to defend and defeat those charges.
The Tarrant County College District
Tarrant County College is actually a District of college campuses supported by a central administration. Tarrant County College has Northeast, Northwest, South, Southeast, and Trinity River campuses, plus its TCC Connect online campus with offices in downtown Fort Worth. Tarrant County College also operates local Learning Opportunities Centers offering basic skills and job readiness courses, plus two Corporate Solutions and Economic Development centers in Fort Worth for customized business training. Five pathways in Arts & Humanities, Business & Industry, Health Science, Human & Public Services, and STEM help guide Tarrant County College students toward their best degree or certificate program. Tarrant County College offers dozens of credit and non-credit programs from A to Z, ensuring that you can find the program best for you. That's all why you've pursued a Tarrant County College certificate or degree.
Tarrant County College Governance
A seven-member board of trustees, each elected by Tarrant County's voters, governs Tarrant County College through adopted board policies. A single school chancellor carries out the board's policies. A cabinet of fourteen officers supports the Tarrant County College Chancellor. The cabinet includes an individual president over each of the College's five physical campuses. Thus, when you face Tarrant County College misconduct charges, you can expect the College board to have adopted the conduct policy supporting the charge and the campus president to designate the local disciplinary officials who will apply that policy. Misconduct matters are thus primarily a local campus concern with centralized policy coordination and school oversight. Do not expect outside agency involvement in your Tarrant County College misconduct matter. The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges accredits Tarrant County College, but accreditors play no role in misconduct matters other than a periodic review for compliance with accreditation standards. Instead, pay close attention to Tarrant County College's adopted Student Code of Conduct and disciplinary procedures. Those documents provide the policies your retained defense advisor will evaluate and procedures your defense advisor will invoke to defend and defeat your Tarrant County College misconduct charges.
Tarrant County College Behavioral Misconduct Policies
Tarrant County College's Student Code of Conduct includes a long list of general behaviors in which students must not engage, subject to disciplinary charges. These behaviors do not directly involve academic conduct. They instead affect the academic environment. Tarrant County College disciplines students for more than just academic misconduct. Violating the College's behavioral standards can result in school suspension or dismissal, among other, lesser sanctions. Tarrant County College's behavioral standards go well beyond the criminal laws to regulate all kinds of non-criminal behavior. Tarrant County College is, in other words, among the most highly regulated environments you may experience. Its Student Code of Conduct prohibits each of the following behaviors:
- Physical abuse, verbal abuse, threats, intimidation, harassment, coercion, and other conduct threatening or endangering health or safety
- Possession of alcoholic beverages, open containers, or public intoxication
- Bullying, defined as aggression with the intention of hurting another person
- Theft or other abuse of computer facilities and resources
- Possession of firearms, explosives, and other weapons or dangerous chemicals
- Disorderly, lewd, or indecent conduct
- Breach of peace or aiding, abetting, or procuring breach of peace
- Disruption or obstruction of teaching, research, administration, student conduct proceedings, or other college activities
- Inappropriate use of college computers and computing resources
- Failure to comply with directions of college officials or law enforcement officers
- False alarm or false report of a present, past, or future bombing, fire, offense, or other emergency
- Tampering with the fire alarm system
- Hazing, defined as endangering mental or physical health or safety or destroying or removing public or private property as a condition for continued membership in a group or organization
- Unlawful possession of narcotics or other controlled substances
- Obstruction of the free flow of pedestrian or vehicular traffic
- Participating in a demonstration, riot, or activity that disrupts normal operations
- Property theft or damage
- Use of tobacco products or vaping devices
- Unauthorized access or entry to any college property or building
- Any act of violence or threat of violence
Tarrant County College Behavioral Misconduct Procedures
Remember, though, a misconduct charge does not mean a misconduct finding or sanction. Tarrant County College's Student Code of Conduct instead provides behavioral misconduct procedures to ensure that the accused student has a fair opportunity to dispute and disprove the charges. When you retain skilled and experienced defense advisor representation, your advisor can put those procedures to best strategic use for winning defense of those charges. Tarrant County College's behavioral misconduct procedures follow these protective steps:
- Misconduct complaints go to a trained administrative investigator
- The investigator gives prompt written and detailed notice of the charges to the accused student
- The investigator interviews the complainant, respondent, and other witnesses
- The investigator holds an informal resolution conference with the accused student
- The investigator may propose a voluntary sanction that the accused student may accept or reject
- Disputed charges proceed to an administrative conference where the accused student may present explanations and evidence with an advisor's assistance
- The conduct administrator conducting the administrative conference notifies the accused student in writing of the findings and any sanction
- The accused student may appeal any sanction to the office of the vice president for student development services
Tarrant County College Behavioral Misconduct Sanctions
Tarrant County College's Student Code of Conduct also states the sanctions that the conduct administrator may impose for behavioral misconduct. A finding of misconduct does not mean that the conduct administrator will impose a severe sanction. Your retained defense advisor's presentation of mitigating evidence may convince the administrator to forgo any sanction. Tarrant County College's code permits the administrator to impose anything from a reprimand to loss of privileges, no-contact orders, restitution, probation, deferred suspension pending completion of conditions, suspension, or expulsion, and even degree revocation after graduation. The Student Code of Conduct adds that the conduct administrator must consider the accused student's prior discipline when imposing a new disciplinary sanction and may impose more than one sanction. The conduct administrator may also enhance discipline based on the behavior's severity and its impact on the College. The breadth of these penalties, from minor to moderate to severe, suggests the discretion that the conduct administrator may have in any one case. The quality of your defense advisor's presentation in mitigation of any sanctions can go a long way toward winning your disciplinary case.
Tarrant County College Academic Misconduct
Behavioral misconduct is not the only disciplinary charge that Tarrant County College officials may make, threatening your enrollment, education, and future. College disciplinary officials also concern themselves with academic misconduct. Indeed, college disciplinary officials may treat academic misconduct just as seriously or even more seriously than behavioral misconduct. Far from a victimless wrong, academic misconduct strikes at the core of a college program, calling into question the integrity of the college's degrees and certifications and the fitness of the college's graduates. Tarrant County College's Student Code of Conduct prohibits these forms of academic misconduct:
- Cheating, defined as improper collaboration or unauthorized assistance in connection with any academic work, including copying another's work, submitting another's work as one's own, completing academic work for someone else or permitting someone else to complete academic work for oneself, or using unauthorized aid such as an outside source, cell phone, calculator, notes, or previous testing materials
- Collusion, defined as assisting or attempting to assist another in violation of academic rules, including sharing academic work with another student without instructor permission or communicating with another during an examination without instructor permission
- Plagiarism, defined as using another's work or ideas without proper acknowledgment, including partial or incomplete citation, improperly paraphrasing while failing to present the material in one's own words or without acknowledging the source, multiple submissions of the same academic work for credit, or copying material without acknowledging the source
Tarrant County College Academic Misconduct Procedures
Tarrant County College's Student Code of Conduct authorizes the same protective procedures for determining academic misconduct as for determining behavioral misconduct. In practice, instructors may decline to report certain minor student academic conduct that the instructor judges to involve only a matter of uninformed or immature student judgment. College students in their first and second years can make mistakes about college academic procedures. Unpremeditated mistakes in judgment may bear instructor correction rather than formal misconduct complaints. But expect formal complaint, investigation, and resolution procedures for any action that the instructor determines to be a deliberate wrong to gain undue academic advantage, especially premeditated actions like taking another student's exam or permitting another student to take one's own exam. Tarrant County College's Student Code of Conduct does not authorize instructors to resolve academic misconduct charges but expects the appointed investigator and conduct administrator to address those charges. Get outside defense advisor representation if you face Tarrant County College academic misconduct charges.
Tarrant County College Academic Misconduct Sanctions
As stated above, Tarrant County College's Student Code of Conduct lists misconduct sanctions that the conduct administrator may impose, from reprimand to suspension or expulsion. But the College's Student Code of Conduct adds other sanctions, presumably only for academic misconduct, that the Code calls “Scholastic Penalties.” The instructor may choose to assign a failing grade either on the assignment or examination on which the student cheated or for the whole course. The instructor submits a written report of the matter, including the proposed sanction, to the instructor's dean, who may presumably affirm, modify, or reverse the finding and sanction. The College's Student Code of Conduct makes clear that this list of sanctions is not exhaustive. Other common academic misconduct sanctions include counseling, reflection paper, key staff interview, behavior contract, remedial reading or training, repeating completed academic work, a reduced grade for the course, and doing extra academic work to preserve course credit or improve the failing or reduced grade. Academic misconduct sanctions can lead to other issues, including failure to meet the College's minimum academic standards leading to probation, suspension, or dismissal.
Outside Help for Tarrant County College Hearings
Retain the skilled and experienced outside defense advisor you need to avoid, mitigate, and minimize misconduct sanctions. The administrative investigator and conduct administrator managing your Tarrant County College misconduct case may describe to you the College's available procedures. In the course of doing so, they may reassure you that you have no need for outside representation. They may also urge you to consult and rely on the College's administrators, instructors, and support staff for advice on how to handle your misconduct proceeding and hearing. When evaluating that advice, recognize that school disciplinary officials have a conflict of roles and interests when telling students they need no outside help. Those officials doubtless prefer to handle your discipline as they see fit, without a skilled and experienced defense advisor telling them that they must follow school procedures to afford you all rights, should consider better options and may face an appeal if mishandling your case. The role of those officials is to prosecute you for misconduct, not to advise and defend you against misconduct charges. Those officials also get paid by the school and have relationships with the school's instructors and staff that are generally longer term, more substantial, and closer than the official's relationship with you, all of which can bias their advice to you. Instead, retain national school discipline defense advisor Joseph D. Lento for the advice, skills, and representation your winning defense needs. Advisor Lento and the Lento Law Firm's student defense team can provide you with the following effective services to turn your formal proceeding and hearing toward the best outcome:
- Promptly answering disciplinary charges so that the administrative investigator does not default you and impose automatic sanctions
- Requesting and, if necessary, demanding that the disciplinary officials disclose charges and evidence, conduct interviews and resolution conferences, and schedule and conduct formal hearings providing you with all protective procedures
- Communicating clearly and negotiating diplomatically not only with disciplinary officials but also with central school oversight officials toward an early favorable resolution
- Helping you identify, acquire, organize, and present evidence that exonerates you from all charges while mitigating any misconduct and eliminating or decreasing sanctions
- Preparing direct examination questions for your witnesses and cross-examination questions for adverse witnesses at the formal hearing and conducting those examinations where hearing officials permit
- Attending formal and informal hearings and pre-hearing conferences as permitted to advocate with disciplinary officials while guiding and advising you in your best course of action
- Timely appealing adverse decisions to correct errors in the findings and eliminate or reduce any sanctions
- Ensuring that school officials properly document the dismissal of all charges and other favorable resolutions so that your school record remains clear
Resolving Tarrant County College Misconduct Charges
Your goal, though, isn't to wage an extended administrative battle. Doing so may be necessary to achieve your goal. But your goal isn't exhausting procedures. Your goal when facing Tarrant County College misconduct charges is to see the charges dismissed and your record cleared in the most efficient manner possible. Again, exhausting protective procedures may be entirely necessary to achieve your best possible outcome, which is a dismissal of all charges. But early voluntary dismissal through communication and negotiation can be a far more efficient way of getting the same result. By requiring the administrative investigator and conduct administrator to offer and conduct interviews and resolution conferences, Tarrant County College's misconduct procedures provide your outside retained defense advisor with ample opportunity to advocate and negotiate for charge dismissal. Academic administrative negotiation isn't generally a matter of pounding on tables and making threats of litigation. Those tactics may work in civil or criminal court cases but not in academia, where the norms and customs are collegial and collaborative rather than adversarial and combative. Having successfully represented hundreds of students nationwide in academic administrative proceedings, national school discipline defense advisor Joseph D. Lento has the collaborative, sensitive, and creative problem-solving approach to resolve misconduct charges favorably. Advisor Lento knows the reassurances, commitments, and reforms that college disciplinary officials are likely to accept to dismiss misconduct charges early. Retain advisor Lento for your best outcome.
Tarrant County College SAP Charges
Tarrant County College has the perfect slogan for its access mission: “success within reach.” Yet college officials know that success comes with assured learning, not assured graduation. College instructors must ensure that each student meets the college's minimum academic standards if college degrees and certifications are to have their reliability and value. Minimum academic standards are at the core of Tarrant County College's access and success missions. Federal law also requires that any school receiving federal funding, including federal student loan proceeds, like Tarrant County College, enforce those minimum academic standards. Tarrant County College does so through its Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) standards. You must meet those standards throughout your time at the college or may suffer probation, suspension, and dismissal. SAP standards are typically complex, having to account for new students making adjustments, medical or military leaves of absence, and other unusual student circumstances. But in outline form, Tarrant County College's SAP standards require each of the following:
- Demonstrate the ability to meet a minimum 2.00 / 4.00 cumulative grade-point average by the time of graduation
- Complete with a passing grade in at least two-thirds (67%) of the course credits you attempt, counting incomplete courses and course withdrawals
- Successfully complete at least one credit hour in each academic term for which you enroll at the college
- Complete your degree program before you have attempted more than 150% of the credits the college requires for the degree, amounting to ninety hours of attempted credits for a sixty-hour associate degree program
Tarrant County College SAP Appeals
Maintaining a 2.00 or “C” grade average while completing most of the course credits you attempt may not sound too difficult. But life intervenes and can adversely affect schooling. Tarrant County College students, like students at other colleges, can face terribly challenging things like serious illness, severe injury, pregnancy, divorce, and disability or death of a close family member. And those things can cause a student to leave courses incomplete, withdraw from courses, skip terms, and suffer unusually poor or failing grades, leaving the student's academic record below minimum requirements. Challenging life circumstances and events can lead to an otherwise skilled and committed student's academic dismissal. Tarrant County College must bar you from enrollment and financial aid at some point if you don't meet its minimum academic standards. But don't give up hope if your academic record at Tarrant County College no longer meets minimum academic standards. Tarrant County College permits you to appeal satisfactory academic progress (SAP) dismissal. Appeals and reinstatement are not automatic. The College's appeal process requires that you do each of the following:
- Timely complete the College's financial aid appeal form
- Write a personal statement in which you show qualifying mitigating circumstances like illness, injury, job issues, or a death in the family
- Provide supporting documentation such as a death certificate, medical records, or court records
- Include in your personal statement the steps you have taken to correct and overcome the mitigating circumstances
- Include in your personal statement a practical and achievable academic recovery plan
- Describe in your personal statement your educational and career goals
Help with Tarrant County College Financial Aid Appeals
Tarrant County College's financial aid appeals process states plainly that an appeal simply stating “I need financial aid for school” or anything similar will not work. You won't regain your ability to receive financial aid and pursue your degree or certification unless you meet each of the College's above appeal requirements. Financial aid appeals can be harder than they look. Articulating your mitigating circumstances and proving that you've overcome those circumstances can take insightful reflection on what's really going on. Getting the necessary documentation in order can take perseverance. Crafting a convincing academic recovery plan can take inside knowledge of what academic officials believe truly works toward student success. Community college students don't generally have the time, insight, experience, and advocacy skills to make a compelling showing on each of these appeal requirements. Retain national school discipline defense advisor Joseph D. Lento and the Lento Law Firm's student defense team to timely pursue and perfect your Tarrant County College financial aid appeal. Get the skill and experience you need for a winning explanation, plan, and appeal.
Tarrant County College Title IX Charges
Tarrant County College students can face one more type of misconduct charge in the College's highly regulated environment. Federal Title IX requires schools that receive federal funding, like Tarrant County College, to publish and implement policies prohibiting and punishing sex discrimination. Title IX laws and regulations extend the definition of sex discrimination to include several kinds of sexual behaviors between students. In short, Tarrant County College may charge you with sexual misconduct under its Title IX policy based on your alleged interactions with other students. Title IX charges on college campuses are both common and controversial. College disciplinary officials have been known to ignore the accused student's substantive and procedural rights to satisfy vocal student and public advocates. Title IX charges are also serious. Findings of sexual misconduct can impair or destroy your education, job, career, and family and social relationships. Take the charges most seriously, getting outside defense advisor help if Tarrant County College charges you with any of the following Title IX misconduct based on federal Title IX definitions:
- Sexual assault involving either rape, touching private body parts of a non-consenting, underage, or mentally incapacitated person for sexual gratification, incest between persons related to one another within degrees that marriage laws prohibit, or statutory rape with a person under the lawful age of consent in Texas
- Domestic violence committed by the victim's current or former spouse or intimate partner or a person with whom the victim shares a child, the victim is cohabiting or has cohabited as a spouse or intimate partner, or is similarly situated to a spouse of the victim
- Dating violence between an accuser and accused who are dating, have dated, or have had a sexual relationship, including intentionally inflicting or attempting to inflict injury on the victim or causing the victim to fear injury, restraint, or malicious damage to personal property
- Sexual harassment in either the quid-pro-quo form, which means conditioning an educational benefit or service on participation in unwelcome sexual conduct, or in the hostile environment form, which means unwelcome conduct of a sexual nature that a reasonable person would consider severe, pervasive, and objectively offensive enough to deny the victim equal access to education
- Stalking, defined as the accused's course of conduct toward the victim that would cause a reasonable person to fear for safety or suffer substantial emotional distress, and involving at least two acts in which the accused follows, monitors, observes, surveils, threatens, or communicates with or about the victim or interferes with the victim's property
Tarrant County College Non-Title IX Sexual Misconduct
Title IX charges are not a Tarrant County College student's only sexual misconduct concern. Tarrant County College, like other colleges nationwide, extends its Title IX policy to include other forms of “sexual exploitation” that Title IX does not reach. The College's Title IX policy defines sexual exploitation as “taking non-consensual or abusive sexual advantage of another for their own benefit or for the benefit of anyone other than the person being exploited….” The College's Title IX policy then lists these non-Title IX forms of prohibited sexual exploitation, any of which may result in sexual misconduct charges:
- Sexual voyeurism such as observing or allowing others to observe a person undressing, using the bathroom, or engaging in sexual acts
- Invasion of sexual privacy
- Taking pictures, videos, or audio recordings of another's sexual activity against reasonable expectations of privacy and without the consent of all involved in the activity
- Exceeding the boundaries of consent, such as allowing another person to hide in a closet to observe sexual activity
- Disseminating sexual pictures without the photographed person's consent, including so-called revenge pornography
- Prostituting another person
- Engaging in sexual activity with another person while knowingly infected with a sexually-transmitted disease or infection, without informing the other person
- Causing or attempting to cause the incapacitation of another person through alcohol, drugs, or other means to compromise that person's ability to give consent to sexual activity
- Misappropriating another person's identity in venues designed for dating or sexual connections
- Forcing a person to take action against that person's will by threatening to share information, video, audio, or an image that depicts the person's nudity or sexual activity
- Knowingly soliciting a minor for sexual activity or engaging in sex trafficking
- Possession of child pornography
Tarrant County College Sexual Misconduct Procedures
Federal Title IX regulations require schools receiving federal funding to provide students accused of Title IX misconduct with relatively substantial protective procedures. You stand a good chance of defending and defeating Title IX and other sexual misconduct charges when you employ a skilled and experienced defense advisor to invoke these protective procedures. To satisfy these Title IX procedural obligations, Tarrant County College publishes a separate Resolution Process for Title IX and non-Title sexual misconduct charges. Under Tarrant County College's Resolution Process, sexual misconduct reports go to the College's Title IX coordinator. The Title IX coordinator first determines whether the complaint alleges sexual misconduct violating the College's policy. The coordinator then determines whether the accuser and accused are willing to attempt an informal resolution if an informal resolution appears appropriate. Otherwise, the matter proceeds to a formal investigation and hearing after the coordinator notifies the accused student in writing of the details of the charge and allegations. Importantly, Tarrant County College's Resolution Process guarantees that the accused may retain an outside defense advisor. The Resolution Process further guarantees that the advisor may request and actively participate in resolution conferences and hearings. Retain national school discipline defense advisor Joseph D. Lento for winning representation on your sexual misconduct charges.
Tarrant County College Sexual Misconduct Hearings
Tarrant County College's Resolution Process for Title IX and non-Title IX sexual misconduct charges provides abundant protective procedures for formal investigations and hearings. The investigator produces a written report shared with the accused student for comment. The Title IX coordinator draws an impartial decision maker or panel of impartial decision makers from a pool of trained and qualified individuals connected with the College. The chief hearing official must give the accused student and the student's defense advisor adequate advance notice of the time, place, and date of the hearing. Hearing officials must consider the live testimony of witnesses at the hearing and may not accept written statements of witnesses who are not available for cross-examination. The accused student's defense advisor may cross-examine adverse witnesses. The accused student may also present defense witnesses and other evidence. The College must record the hearing for appellate review. The hearing panel must disclose the supporting facts and rationale in a written decision timely shared with the accused student. Appeals of adverse decisions go to a three-member appeal panel drawn from the same pool of college personnel. National school discipline defense advisor Joseph D. Lento has substantial skill and experience putting these Title IX hearing procedures to the accused student's winning defense. Retain advisor Lento for your best Title IX sexual misconduct charge outcome.
