Standards of Conduct

  • Policy

    Students will be held to the standards outlined in the Seattle University Code of Student Conduct and must adhere to the Seattle University Academic Policies during their time abroad.


    Students are responsible for the effect their conduct has on the other participants, hosts, and are expected to conform to standards of conduct consistent with the maintenance of the reputation of Seattle University. Conduct considered unacceptable to Seattle University includes any behavior that disrupts normal program operation or endangers oneself or others, but is not limited to excessive use of alcohol, fighting, abusive behaviors toward others, sexual harassment, criminal conduct of any kind, or participation in (vs. observation of) political activities, use of illegal drugs, or unwillingness to cooperate with University or host representatives. Furthermore, students are required to comply with the terms of participation and emergency procedures of their program abroad and must obey host country laws.

    Failure to adhere to these standards may result in disciplinary action or dismissal at the discretion of Seattle University and/or the participant's program. In the case of dismissal, determinations on credits, finances, etc. will be determined by university officials and will follow applicable University policies.
