The Disciplinary Process

The Office of Student Conduct oversees the resolution of complaints involving alleged misconduct by students. The document which describes the principles and explains the process which govern the disciplinary system is the Charter of the University of Pennsylvania Student Disciplinary System.

University Procedures

The student disciplinary system has jurisdiction over all four of Penn’s undergraduate schools and many graduate programs (see links for details). The primary regulations enforced are the Code of Student Conduct and the Code of Academic Integrity. However, the Office of Student Conduct also has responsibility for complaints arising under the policies governing computing use, open expression, sexual misconduct, alcohol and drug use, fraternity and sorority behavior and others.
