Part II: Student Responsibilities

Just as students have rights, they also have responsibilities. Indiana University recognizes its responsibility to support and uphold the basic freedoms and citizenship rights of all students, and it expects students to be responsible for the following:

  1. Uphold and follow all codes of conduct, including this Code, relevant codes and bulletins of respective schools, professional programs or professional societies, and all rules applicable to conduct in class environments or university-sponsored activities, including off-campus clinical, field, internships, or in-service experiences.
  2. Obey all applicable university policies and procedures and all local, state, and federal laws.
  3. Facilitate the learning environment and the process of learning, including attending class regularly, completing class assignments, and coming to class prepared.
  4. Plan a program of study appropriate to the student’s educational goals. This may include selecting a major field of study, choosing an appropriate degree program within the discipline, planning class schedules, and meeting the requirements for the degree.
  5. Use university property and facilities in support of their education while being mindful of the rights of others to use university property and facilities.
  6. Maintain and regularly monitor their university accounts including e-mail and bursar accounts.
  7. Uphold and maintain academic and professional honesty and integrity.

  8. Be responsible for their behavior, and respect the rights and dignity of others both within and outside of the university community.

In addition to these on-campus responsibilities, the university may discipline a student for acts of personal misconduct or criminal acts that are not committed on university property.
