Lanier Technical College recognizes that the dress and grooming of students are
significant factors in the successful operation of the educational program. Furthermore,
it is recognized as an educational responsibility of the college that students are
made aware that appropriate dress, appearance, and hygiene are conducive to their
personal well-being and the well-being of others.
Generally, common sense and good taste should prevail in matters of dress. Because
of safety and other concerns in some programs, a professional dress code must be
established and enforced. This dress code will be established with the approval
of the college's administration. (For example, some programs will require lab coats,
uniforms, long garments to protect the skin.)
The following regulations shall be observed to cultivate a proper attitude toward
dress and grooming by the student:
- Students enrolled in internships and clinical courses are required to dress appropriately
according to the requirements of the work for which they are being trained.
- Shoes are to be worn at all times.
- Longer knee length types of shorts such as dress shorts, Bermudas, and culottes
are acceptable. Short shorts, tight shorts and running/gym shorts are not permitted.
- Cleanliness of person and clothing is required.
- Use of offensive, obscene, and/or abusive words or symbols on clothing is not permitted.
This includes the use of emblems, insignias, badges, or other symbols or lewd or
vulgar words where the effect is offensive to a reasonable person or otherwise causes
disruption or interference with the orderly operations of the college. The supervising
administrator shall determine if the particular mode of dress results in disruptions
- Tank tops, halter tops, tube tops or other top garments defined as skimpy, scooped
out at the neck and shoulder, and/or showing excessive amounts of skin area are
types of inappropriate dress.
**For documented medical reasons, the administration is authorized to approve exceptions
to the above requirements.
