The University of Connecticut is committed to providing a safe environment for its students and employees. To promote this environment, all applicants for admission or readmission to the University are required to indicate whether they have been subject to disciplinary action for academic or behavioral misconduct prior to enrollment.


To ensure that applicants, admitted students indicating the assignment of disciplinary action subsequent to application, former students applying for readmission to the University, or any students whose prior conduct is discovered after application submission (hereinafter “applicants”) receive a fair evaluation, the appropriate admission authority (i.e., The Graduate School, Undergraduate Admissions, Dean of Students) will refer such applicants to the Conduct History Review Committee (CHRC), which will undertake a thorough and holistic review of the conduct identified by the applicant in the context of their application for admission.

If the applicant is otherwise identified as a viable candidate for admission by the respective office, the CHRC review of this history may result in denying the applicant admission or enrollment to the University. Alternatively, it may permit enrollment subject to certain conditions (e.g., restricting access to on-campus housing or requiring participation in counseling services), or allowing enrollment without any restrictions.


Violations of this policy may result in appropriate disciplinary measures in accordance with University By-Laws and the University of Connecticut Student Code.
