Reporting Arrests

It is the responsibility of all university students to report to the office of student conduct if they have been arrested. According to our policy, arrests by law enforcement agencies outside of USC's Division of Law Enforcement and Safety must be reported by the student to the Office of Student Conduct within 72 hours of arrest.


The Office of Student Conduct and Academic Integrity and the behavioral intervention process develop and enforce standards of conduct for students inside and outside of the classroom.  This is achieved through clearly articulated and consistently administered standards which promote personal growth and preserve the rights and safety of the academic community. 


The Office of Student Conduct (OSC) and Academic Integrity (OAI) and the behavioral intervention process are committed to providing experiences, processes and resources that support the advancement of students’ principled decision making, responsible citizenship and adherence to The Carolinian Creed; and which contribute to an environment that supports the health and safety of members so that they may reach academic goals without unnecessary impediments.

Core Functions:
  1. Conduct hearings and provide educational/developmental sanctions
  2. Provide educational outreach for individual and community awareness
  3. Intervene when problematic behavior is identified
