COVID-19 Community Standards
Refer Your Concerns
Any person may refer behavior by Carolina students to the Office of Student Conduct relevant to non-compliance of the University’s Community Standards associated with COVID-19. The Office of Student Conduct will review and address the behavior as appropriate based upon the information provided and, in some cases, the COVID-19 Administrative Process may apply. For the University to effectively follow-up on reports of student non-compliance with the Community Standards, and to meet due process requirements, detailed information about the incident and the individuals involved is needed.
Part of our community remaining healthy is holding each other accountable to the Community Standards established by the University. It will take the commitment of everyone in our community to ensure the success of this semester; we all have a responsibility to “Know our W’s” - Wear a mask, Wait 6 feet apart, and Wash your hands often.
Beginning August 1, 2021, the Testing Program is being updated and is linked to a student's vaccination status. All students should update their vaccination status in ConnectCarolina. Students who are unvaccinated or do not provide their vaccination status will be required to participate in re-entry testing and regular asymptomatic evaluation testing.
We empower and support individuals at Carolina to participate in conversations with respect for themselves and others. As you consider your tone and other nonverbal communication, we offer these statements for you to use in support of keeping the Carolina community safe:

Student Conduct works to support the development of Carolina students into ethical, responsible future leaders and citizens, encouraging students to make conduct choices that are supportive of students' thriving while at Carolina and beyond. The Office advises the Undergraduate and Graduate & Professional School branches of the student-led Honor System, adjudicates certain student violations of the University Alcohol Policy, and works with campus and local community partners to promote safe, responsible student conduct and to provide education surrounding the honor, integrity, and ethical decision-making expected of all Carolina community members.
As a condition of joining the Carolina community, Carolina students pledge “not to lie, cheat, or steal” and to hold themselves, as members of the Carolina community, to a high standard of academic and non-academic conduct while both on and off Carolina’s campus. This commitment to academic integrity, ethical behavior, personal responsibility and civil discourse exemplifies the “Carolina Way”, and this commitment is codified in both the University's Honor Code and in other University student conduct-related policies.
