STUDENT DRESS CODE

All students are required to follow the dress code that pertains to their department and classes. This dress code gives our students a disciplined and professional appearance, and it ensures that students are dressed functionally and ready for class. It also aids our teachers in seeing the body structure and technique of their students. Any student who is not in the proper dress code may be asked to leave class.
