Each student is responsible for knowing and adhering to the University's Student Code of Conduct (Code) and its related policies. While the Code and related policies provide students an effective set of guidelines for personal conduct, the University retains the right to instate additional policies or to modify existing ones as needs may dictate. The most updated Code and related policies can be found online at pepperdine.edu/studentcodeofconduct.
Any questions regarding interpretation of this Code should be referred to the Office of Community Standards. The Code is reviewed every year and student input is welcome. We gratefully acknowledge the use and adaptation of model codes of student conduct published by peer institutions, the National Association of College and University Attorneys in Student Disciplinary Issues: A Legal Compendium and Student Handbook Policies, and Ed Stoner and John Lowery, "Model Student Code of Conduct."
