Academic Integrity

The Dean of Student Affairs works closely with the Academic Integrity Office to:
  • Promote a culture of academic integrity within Seventh College and across campus 
  • Prevent misinformation that can lead to cheating
  • Meet with students regarding allegations of Policy on Integrity of Scholarship violations

UC San Diego Policy on Integrity of Scholarship

The University expects both faculty and students to honor the Policy. For students, this means that all academic work will be done by the individual to whom it's assigned, without unauthorized aid of any kind. If violations of academic integrity occur, the same Sanctioning Guidelines apply regardless of which Policy was effective for that case. For more information, visit the Academic Integrity Office website.

UC San Diego Principles of Community

The UC San Diego Principles of Community is a collaboratively developed statement, issued by the chancellor, that provides a framework for diversity and affirms the unique contribution of each member of the UC San Diego community.

Student Conduct & Accountability

Within the UC San Diego communities, honesty, respect and integrity are essential principles. If you are found responsible of misconduct you will be subject to disciplinary action. The Office of Student Conduct provides leadership for the student conduct process while staff from The Dean of Student Affairs Office and Residential Life provide direct student support within our community.

Understanding FERPA

The Federal Educational Rights & Privacy Act (FERPA), also known as the Buckley Amendment, is designed to protect students' educational records. When a student age 18 or older attends a university that receives funding from the federal government, their educational records are held private from parents or other parties unless explicit consent is provided by the student. Staff members and faculty will not disclose confidential information to family members or other members of the community, regardless of their status as a guardian or whether they are financing the student's tuition.

Parents and other parties may not inspect a student’s grades, disciplinary records, or health records without the written consent of the student. The only information that is released, unless the student requests otherwise, is classified as “directory” information. This is limited to a student’s name, address, telephone number, date and place of birth, honors and awards, and dates of attendance.

For more information, view the Notification of Rights Under FERPA for Postsecondary Institutions.

Annual Security and Fire Safety Report

The annual campus security and fire safety report, also known as the Clery Report, includes certain crime and fire statistics, which were reported to campus security authorities in the past three years. The report also gives instructions on how to report crimes. To obtain copies of this report, call UC San Diego Police, (858) 534-4361.
