Academic Integrity and Student Code of Conduct
Rutgers University–Camden seeks a community that is free from violence, threats, and intimidation; is respectful of the rights, opportunities, and welfare of students, faculty, staff, and guests of the University; and does not threaten the physical or mental health or safety of members of the University community, including in classroom space, and a community in which students respect academic integrity and the integrity of your own and others’ work. As a student at the University, you are expected to adhere to the Student Code of Conduct and Academic Integrity PolicyAcademic Integrity is critical to the success of our students and the community and is everyone’s responsibility to take their education seriously and follow the requirements to ensure that you are doing your own work and following the guidelines of the course and professor and program.
Please Note: The conduct code specifically addresses disruptive classroom conduct, which means “engaging in behavior that substantially or repeatedly interrupts either the instructor’s ability to teach or student learning. The classroom extends to any setting where a student is engaged in work toward academic credit or satisfaction of program-based requirements or related activities.” Please be aware of in-classroom and out-of-classroom expectations by making yourself familiar with and by following the Student Code of Conduct.

Academic advising should be ongoing throughout your college career. It helps you clarify your personal, educational, and career goals, and to understand how your courses fit into your goals for the future. Students are assigned advisors based on their declared major.

Rutgers University–Camden is committed to providing quality services, a great education, and an engaged and caring experience for our students. Sometimes problems arise, and students may find that they would like to file a complaint about their experience or about a particular situation. To file a complaint, students can complete the Student Affairs Reporting form and someone will connect with you to discuss your complaint, explain options, and address the issue that was raised. Students do have the option of filing a complaint anonymously, but then there will be no way for the office handling the complaint to let the student know how it was addressed. Filling out a form will allow students to understand all options and the different ways an issue can be addressed.
