The Code of Student Rights, Responsibilities, and Conduct

You might think this is just more legal mumbo-jumbo designed for parents, but The Code (as we like to call it) is so much more. The Code is Indiana University’s way of ensuring that the rights of students—our most important group—are protected and respected.

As an IU student, you are entitled to respect and civility as you study here, but you have an important role to play in this free and open exchange of ideas we call a university. You must be aware of your responsibilities and expectations as a student—and that’s where the Code comes in. Here, you’ll find your rights and expectations clearly spelled out. Read it. Know it. Your time as an IU student will be better for it.
