Planning to Go Abroad

Code of Conduct

You are required to read and to understand the following Code of Conduct.

Standards of Conduct: You are required to be familiar with and to adhere to the UR Standards of Student Conduct Guide. The same behavior expectations exist overseas, in matters relating to student-to-student relationships, class attendance, and academic honesty.

Academic Policy: The general regulations of the University of Rochester override those of the study abroad program. An example: the program may indicate that students have the option of taking less than a full load of courses. However, since we do not permit overloads or underloads on study abroad programs, you will be held to the UR policy

Disciplinary Probation: It is your responsibility to notify our office if you are currently on disciplinary probation. If you are placed on disciplinary action before your study abroad program begins, you need to contact our office to discuss how this will affect your study abroad plans.

Health and Safety Policies: The general regulations of the University of Rochester override those of the study abroad program. For example, some programs may permit students to rent or operate motorized vehicles, and we do not. However, in some cases, the judgements of local area experts may be based on more current and accurate information than is available to us. In such cases, we will rely on the recommendations of local security consultants and site directors.
