All students must respect and abide by the laws and customs of the host country, the IU Code of Student Rights, Responsibilities, and Conduct, and any rules and regulations for student conduct made or adopted by IU or its partners, including but not limited to local partner rules and regulations for student conduct designed to safeguard health, well-being and safety. This is applicable from the official program arrival date through the official program completion date.
By your signature on the Agreement and Release form, you have agreed:
- to respect the laws and customs of the host country, the IU Code of Student Rights, Responsibilities, and Conduct, and all other reasonable standards of conduct promulgated by IU, its agents and consortium partners.
- to participate fully in the academic program by attending classes. You have acknowledged that if the program staff, with the concurrence of the College Office of International Affairs, determines that your conduct is detrimental to the best interests of the program or of IU, your participation in the program may be terminated.
In criminal matters (which may be defined differently outside the U.S.) neither IU nor U.S. consular officials can intercede effectively on your behalf. In some countries, the burden of proof rests with the defense and not with the prosecution. The U.S. Embassy/Consulate cannot get you out of jail or represent you in a trial. It can only assist in notifying family and help connect you to resources in the event of arrest, hospitalization or other emergencies.
You are expected to be alert, on time and engaged during all program activities. You are receiving a grade for this experience, and failure to arrive on time and participate can result in a lower grade or in denial to participate in future excursions of the program. Showing up to any program activity hungover or drunk is inexcusable, and will result in disciplinary action and academic repercussions.
