Student Conduct & Support Services

Office of Student Support & Judicial Affairs, 530-752-1128

The Office of Student Support & Judicial Affairs (OSSJA) supports the University's educational mission by assisting students in need, promoting student development, and upholding standards of academic honesty and responsible behavior. 

Student Support

Every year, students struggle with challenges and crisis-related issues that interfere with their academic and student life success. The non-clinical case managers in OSSJA provide support and assistance to students experiencing difficulties and to staff and faculty members who become aware of such students. Case managers serve students in distress by reaching out to understand each student's needs and then coordinating with campus and community resources for assistance and care. They also provide consultation to faculty and staff regarding students of concern, help problem-solve situations involving students of concern, and provide feedback to involved parties as needed. Finally, they serve on the Students of Concern Response Team (SCRT), an interdisciplinary group of professionals that manages situations involving students of concern who present potentially serious risk of harm to self or others.

Student Responsibilities

UC Davis policies serve multiple purposes:

  • To support the safety and security of all members of our community.
  • To promote responsible and engaged involvement in the campus community.
  • To uphold the University's standards of excellence in education and promote the ethical, intellectual, and emotional growth and development of students involved in the disciplinary process.
  • To ensure compliance with federal, state and local laws and regulations.

Students are responsible for complying with the announcements and regulations in this catalog and with all policies of the university and this campus. The student conduct staff in OSSJA uphold campus standards of academic honesty and student conduct by resolving alleged violations of university policies. The Code of Academic Conduct and other policies related to student conduct may be found on the Policies page at the Office of Student Support & Judicial Affairs. Students must meet all university obligations in order to register for courses or receive transcripts of record and diplomas.
