Conduct Process

It is important for our community members to understand their responsibilities, to know what is expected of them and understand that there are consequences should they violate the Student Conduct Code or other University policies.

By joining the USF community, you chose to become a member of a community that values, respects and adheres to University policies, procedures and expectations while upholding the highest standards of honesty and integrity in and out of the classroom.


Misconduct that occurs on or off campus by USF students may be addressed through the student conduct process.

Appeal Process

All students have the right to appeal the finding and/or outcome of their student conduct meeting. View information about the appeal process.

Expectation of Honesty

If a student has violated a policy, one of the most important and positive decisions s/he can make afterwards is to take responsibility for her or his actions and to be honest about the incident. Becoming a mature adult requires that one take ownership of personal actions. Regardless of the original violation, if a student is found to be dishonest in the conduct process, s/he will be subject to further disciplinary action.

USF Student Honor Pledge

As a University of San Francisco student, I pledge to honor the Jesuit values of the University by upholding the highest standards of honesty and integrity in my academic work and respect in my personal interactions with members of the USF community. I also intend to use the knowledge and skills I gain through my education for the common good.
