Code of Student Conduct
The purpose of the Code of Conduct is to set expectations of behavior that promote the safety and welfare of the Northeastern University community. The University seeks to provide a supportive environment that is conducive to learning, the pursuit of truth, the exchange of knowledge, the intellectual development of students, and the general good of society. In those instances where violations of the behavioral expectations occur, Northeastern University has developed policies and procedures to protect the rights of members of the University community, individually and collectively.
The Code of Student Conduct, 2012-2013
is listed in University Regulations, page 12 of the PDF of the Undergraduate Student Handbook. The Code of Conduct applies to all registered undergraduate and graduate, full- and part-time students as well as continuing education and online students enrolled at Northeastern University, as well as all student groups and organizations.
Student behavior occurring off campus that is in violation of the Code or local, state, or federal laws and could adversely affect the educational mission of the University or its relationship with the surrounding community may subject students to discipline pursuant to the Code of Student Conduct. This applies to students acting on their own volition as well as in recognized student groups and organizations.
