Code of Conduct
Code of ConductStanford Continuing Studies is dedicated to the mission of nurturing a vibrant learning community, nourishing the life of the mind, and promoting the pleasures of intellectual exploration and exchange. Students in our program are expected to conduct themselves in a manner that represents the spirit of this mission.
In addition, students are expected to comply with all rules and regulations put forth by Stanford University, including the University’s Fundamental Standard, which states that, “Students at Stanford are expected to show…respect for order, morality, personal honor and the rights of others as is demanded of good citizens. Failure to do this will be sufficient cause for removal from the University.”
The following behavior will not be tolerated and may result in removal from our program, and from the university campus, as well as forfeiture of all tuition and fees paid. Unacceptable student behavior includes, but is not limited to:
- Disruption of teaching, learning, or the free flow of ideas in the classroom
- Disorderly conduct and/or disturbing the peace
- Dishonesty and/or misrepresenting oneself, both in the classroom and during correspondence with instructors, fellow students and administrative staff
