Under the official Turkish approvals and the license granted by accredited universities as a branch in Istanbul, the Tulip Academy has the right and responsibility to determine who will be admitted to the institution and accept the student according to the specific behaviour of the institution under any circumstances. Students must adhere to the institution's policies and regulations. The President of the Tulip Academy is responsible for student conduct and discipline. This responsibility is exercised through the Student Code of Conduct administered by the Student Affairs Department. Each student is subject to law. Such laws may be violated and may, by rules and regulations, subject the offender to appropriate disciplinary action taken by the university authorities. Conviction of a student for a criminal offense of a kind that is contrary to the educational or regular process of the Tulip Academy or of the kind that if the student is allowed to remain in the registration would jeopardize the health, safety or property of members of the academic community should be sufficient grounds for expulsion or other disciplinary action Against this student. Except as noted above, student violations of non-academic rules and regulations should give the student notice, reasonable time to answer, fair opportunity, hearing and decision making. The appointed President or appointed person who may reinstate the final administrative appeal may order a new hearing or decide on the determination of the penalties. 2.
