III. Scope and Interpretation of the Code

The Student Code of Community Standards shall apply to conduct that occurs on University premises, at University sponsored activities, and to off-campus conduct that undermines student academic success and that adversely affects the University community and/or the pursuit of its objectives. Each student shall be responsible for his/her conduct from the time of application for admission through the actual awarding of a degree, before classes begin and after classes end, as well as during the academic year and during periods between terms of actual enrollment (and even if relevant conduct is not discovered until after a degree is awarded). The Dean of Students, in consultation with the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs shall decide whether the Student Code shall be applied to conduct occurring off campus, on a case by case basis, in their sole discretion.

Any question of interpretation or application of the Student Code of Community Standards shall be referred to the Dean of Students or their designee for final determination.

The Student Code shall be reviewed every 2 years under the direction of the Dean of Students.
