Student Handbook

The Student Handbook outlines policies, procedures, and the Conduct Code, which enumerate the university’s expectations of students.  In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the handbook has undergone substantial revision to specify expectations related to the prevention and mitigation of COVID-19.  We encourage all students to carefully review the handbook, with specific attention to the COVID-19 Prevention & Mitigation policy (page 11), the COVID-19 Student Expectations (and associated consequences for violating those expectations; starts on page 90), occupancy limits (page 61), and guest policies (page 63).
