The Student Policies and Regulations Handbook ("Handbook") integrates the University of California Policies Applying to Campus Activities, Organizations, and Students ("Policies") available on the Web at and Santa Cruz campus implementing regulations applying to campus activities, organizations, and students. To distinguish between the UC Policies and University of California Santa Cruz Regulations ("Regulations"), University of California Santa Cruz Regulations are printed in bold type. Effective June 29, 2016, this publication incorporates revisions made during the last academic year, and supersedes all documents of the same title published previously.

Members of the university community may propose amendments to these Policies and Regulations by submitting proposals to the Office of Student Conduct and Community Standards for referral to the chancellor's advisory committee on campus regulations. The committee makes periodic recommendations to the president or the chancellor. (See Sections 13.30, 13.31 and 13.40.) Proposals may be sent via email to or by mail to Student Conduct and Community Standards, 245 Hahn, 1156 High Street, Santa Cruz, CA 95064. Updates to the Handbook prior to its next publication date will be posted on the Student Conduct and Community Standards website at
