College matriculation assumes maturity, seriousness of purpose and self-discipline. This is particularly true of students who will dedicate themselves to this important field of human service. Students are expected to conduct themselves in a manner that reflects credit to the Funeral Service profession and AAMI.

Each member of the faculty has full authority to take disciplinary action in cases of misconduct. Repeated infractions or serious misconduct are handled by the Director of Student Services. AAMI reserves the right to suspend or terminate the training of any student, by the action of the Faculty Council, when such action is deemed in the best interest of AAMI.

AAMI is a registered member of the U.S. Department of Education’s Network of Colleges and Universities Committed to the Elimination of Drug and Alcohol Abuse and as such has set forth specific disciplinary policies in the Student Handbook, which is distributed to each student during the orientation program.

The Funeral Service Oath should serve as a code of conduct throughout the school year and into their funeral service career. The commonly accepted rules of good behavior are required of the student not only on the school premises but in daily contacts with the public. Common courtesy, dignity, honesty and respect for the rights of others are attributes which are essential to a successful career.
