Student Handbook

Student Handbook

On behalf of the students, staff and faculty, welcome to the Helena College. We have been putting hands and minds to work in the Helena community and beyond for 70 years. Whatever your goal- a degree or certificate leading to a new career, preparation for transfer to a four-year university, or simply new skills or personal enrichment- we are committed to providing you a broad range of outstanding academic programs and support services to help you achieve success. Our highly qualified faculty, dedicated staff, expanding campus facilities, and affordable tuition will offer you the opportunity for an exceptional learning environment and a substantial educational value.

The Helena College Student Handbook is intended to provide you with basic information about services as well as policies and procedures related to your rights, responsibilities, and conduct as a student and a member of our campus community. You are responsible for knowing the information included in this handbook as well as the college catalog. If you have questions or concerns, always feel free to contact the appropriate staff or faculty member. Within this handbook you will find a campus directory providing contact information as well as a “Where do I go to…” list that addresses students’ frequently asked questions and needs. We hope you will use the handbook to familiarize yourself with the many resources available to you at Helena College to support your learning, enhance your student experience, and contribute to your long-term personal development.

Sincerely,
Elizabeth Stearns-Sims
Assistant Dean of Student Affairs







Campus Security and Crime Statistics

Safety on the Helena College campus is a concern for students, parents and college employees. Education-the business of a learning institution-can only take place in an environment in which each student and staff member feels safe. The Helena College administration recognizes this and has made security a priority.

In compliance with the Jeanne Cleary Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act of 1998, Helena College annually reports the required crime statistics. You can view the report by visiting the Office of Postsecondary Education website at http://ope.ed.gov/security/index.aspx. To view the report enter Helena College in the Name of Institution search box.

This report is also available in hard copy from the Enrollment Services office at the Helena College Donaldson Campus located at 1115 North Roberts, Helena, MT 59601.
