Students are expected to be aware of and comply with official student conduct policies and regulations.
UCLA maintains the highest standards of quality, institutional integrity, and freedom of expression so its work can go forward freely, with full recognition by all concerned of the rights, privileges, and responsibilities of those who comprise its community. UCLA students assume these privileges and responsibilities upon admission and cannot use ignorance of these policies as justification for violating these standards.
Guided by its Principles of Community, UCLA strives to maintain an inclusive excellence that encompasses high academic standards and recognition that diversity is essential to maintaining them.
As members of both society and the academic community, with attendant rights and responsibilities, students are expected to make themselves aware of and comply with the law, and with UC and UCLA policies and regulations. Many UCLA policies and regulations parallel federal, state, and local laws, but UCLA standards may be set higher. The UCLA reputation for academic excellence and institutional integrity is among its most valued assets. As such, academic integrity is of paramount importance, and it is vital that UCLA does all within its power to maintain that asset.
Regulations in the UCLA Student Conduct Code were developed to create and maintain a safe, supportive, and inclusive campus community designed to foster student academic success, personal growth, and responsible citizenship. The student conduct process was established to respond to incidents involving allegations of prohibited behavior within the community. The process is an educational opportunity that encourages students to evaluate their actions, consider their decisions, and gain skills to improve their future choices
The University of California Policy on Sexual Violence and Sexual Harassment and University of California Policies Applying to Campus Activities, Organizations, and Students have been incorporated into the UCLA Student Conduct Code either by adaptation or verbatim insertion of those policies’ language. Information about student policies is available from the Dean of Students office and Student Legal Services, and in the UCLA General Catalog.
