Student Code of Conduct

The Juilliard School strives to create a safe, comfortable, and professional environment that is conducive to the educational and personal well-being of all students. It is expected that all members of the Juilliard community, including school officials, employees, students, programs, and organizations contribute to fostering such an environment. In doing so, it is important to always be aware of the rights and responsibilities held by each student.

The Juilliard School Student Code of Conduct is a contract between the school and the student which supersedes all division handbooks and applies to all students enrolled at The Juilliard School for their duration, without pause (including breaks and students on a leave of absence), until graduation from the School.

When students choose to accept admission to The Juilliard School, they accept the rights and responsibilities of membership in the School’s academic and social community. As members of the community, students are expected to uphold its values by maintaining a high standard of conduct.

Student misconduct is defined as any student behavior that violates rules of The Juilliard School as stated in this document, contained within any School publication, or on the website; and/or is in violation of state, local, or federal laws and ordinances.

Students who are present or accompanying others while in the act of violating the Student Code of Conduct may be as culpable as the violators and may be subject to sanctions.

Occasionally, the rules of the school and the law will overlap, but the school does not attempt to duplicate the law or legal system. The School reserves the right to pursue matters through its student conduct system that may also be addressed in the legal system.

Serious violations or persistent minor violations of school rules, policies, or regulations may result in suspension or expulsion.

Non-residential students are expected to abide by the same standards of community behavior as residential students as outlined in the Student Code of Conduct.

The School reserves the right to adjudicate misconduct that occurs off campus or outside the Irene Diamond Building and Meredith Willson Residence Hall if such misconduct becomes known to the school.

The Juilliard School Conduct System

The Juilliard School Conduct System is the mechanism by which School policies and community standards outlined in the Student Handbook and departmental/divisional policies on the website are enforced. Alleged violations involving academic misconduct and dishonesty are handled by the Dean of Academic Affairs and Assessment or designee, in conjunction with the Chief Student Conduct Officer. It is the purpose of the Juilliard School Conduct System to encourage and uphold accountability standards and to be of educational value, while protecting the rights of all members of the School community.

Chief Student Conduct Officer (CSCO)

The CSCO is responsible for the overall administration of the policy and procedures related to Code of Conduct violations, from initial investigations to findings and sanctions. The CSCO ensures that integrity of the Juilliard Conduct System is preserved and that all student rights and responsibilities in the conduct process are maintained. When a Code of Conduct violation occurs and is reported, the CSCO will assign a conduct administrator(s) to investigate the matter and adjudicate the infraction. When appropriate or when the severity of the violation warrants, the CSCO in consultation with the Associate Dean for Student Development and/or the Vice President of Enrollment Management and Student Development, will convene a Conduct Hearing Panel.

Student Conduct Administrators

The Student Conduct Administrators (SCA) are trained staff and faculty who are assigned to investigate and/or adjudicate alleged Code of Conduct violations.

The Student Conduct Administrators are authorized on a case-by-case basis to meet with students alleged to have violated School policy and to set sanctions, when appropriate.

Conduct Meeting

An informal meeting with a conduct administrator to discuss a minor policy infraction and review relevant school policies. A conduct meeting may result in, but is not limited to, a verbal or written warning

Administrative Conduct Hearing

A conduct hearing with one or two conduct administrators to address significant policy violations. Administrative hearing may result in sanctions up to and including disciplinary probation.

Conduct Hearing Panel

When a disciplinary matter may result in the suspension or expulsion of a student, the CSCO may convene a Hearing Panel.

The panel reviews all documentations, meets with all relevant parties and determines the appropriate sanction, if any. The three-person panel may consist of a combination of faculty, staff or students and the hearing is supervised by the CSCO or designee.

Advisor

An Advisor is a person, chosen by the involved student, to serve in an advisory capacity during the student's involvement in the hearing process. The primary role of the Advisor is to assist the student in preparing for and attending hearings as a support for the student. The student is responsible for presenting the student's own information and, therefore, Advisors are not permitted to speak or participate directly in any hearings without prior approval. The use of an Advisor is strongly recommended.

Jurisdiction

The jurisdiction of the School shall apply to conduct:

  • Which occurs on or off School premises;
  • Which occurs during online using the School network and resources, and through any online or digital platform;
  • During a School sponsored activity including but not limited to online courses, programs, and meetings;

That adversely affects the School community and/or the pursuit of its objectives while the student is enrolled at the School.

Any student found in violation of School policies is subject to disciplinary action according to the procedures outlined in the School's conduct system.

The School will cooperate fully with federal, state and/or local authorities and other agencies in the enforcement of civil or criminal laws. If the alleged offense is also being considered for action within this conduct system, the School may advise off-campus authorities of how such matters will be handled within the School community.

School conduct action may be initiated if a student is charged with a violation of a law which is also in violation of School policy. The School may take action prior to, during or after the disposition of the case by a court of law.

A student who withdraws or takes a leave from the School while disciplinary adjudication is pending is subject to conduct action before permission to re-enroll and/or return to the School is granted. In such cases, the School retains the right to investigate and adjudicate alleged violations regardless of whether the student elects to participate in the process.

Interim Action/Suspension

The Dean of Student Development or designee may impose an interim suspension prior to a hearing decision if the student presents a threat to any member of the community, including themselves. During the interim action/suspension, the student may be denied access to the School, as well as the residence hall and participation in rehearsals, performance or other activities or privileges granted to students. Parents/guardians may be contacted and a no-contact order may also be issued.

Extraordinary Circumstances

The Chief Student Conduct Officer, Dean of Student Development, Associate Dean of Student Development or designee may temporarily alter or bypass the conduct system if warranted by extraordinary circumstances. Additionally, a new interpretation or application of the student code shall be referred to the Dean of Student Development or designee for final determination.

Withholding Degrees & Diplomas

The School has the right to deny or postpone the awarding of a degree or diploma pending the conclusion of the Code of Conduct hearing process.

Preponderance of Evidence

The standard used for investigating any potential violation of the Code of Conduct, including Title IX, is the "preponderance of evidence” standard meaning that “it is more likely than not” that the violation occurred.

Adjudication Process

Rights of Accused Students

  • Students shall be considered not responsible of policy violations until given an opportunity to be heard and found in violation.
  • Students shall be notified in writing of the charges against them at least 72 hours (3 business days) prior to any hearings unless the student waives this right. Business days encompass Monday-Friday and do not include holidays or academic breaks in which the School is closed.
  • Students shall have the right to review the conduct system procedures in its entirety and have any questions answered by a conduct administrator.
  • Students shall expect confidentiality as required by the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act [“FERPA”] and can choose to waive that confidentiality in writing to the CSCO.
  • Students have the right to prepare a response and to have the assistance of an advisor.
  • Students shall have an advisor present with them during any meetings with conduct administrators. An advisor can be any person who was not involved in the conduct being investigated. Examples of advisors include: a friend, parent, lawyer, acquaintance or a Student Conduct Administrator not assigned to the student’s current case.
  • Students have the right to decline to answer questions or provide a statement during a conduct proceeding. Statements made by students during these meeting may become part of the investigation case file. Additionally, while the likelihood of this information being subpoenaed is very low, there is a possibility the information could be provided to the relevant law enforcement agency in the event that there is a pending criminal case based on the conduct under school investigation.
  • Students may postpone a student conduct hearing up to 10 business days if there is a pending legal case stemming from the same incident.
  • Students may review their case file by making an appointment with the Student Conduct Administrator handling the case.
  • Students shall be free from disciplinary sanctions, pending conclusion of the hearing, except in cases where interim action is deemed necessary.
  • Students have the right to present evidence on their behalf.
  • Students have the right to have their case heard within a reasonable amount of time, not to exceed 30 business days, excluding holidays.
  • Students may request an individual hearing when more than one student in a specific incident alleged to have violated the Code of Conduct.

Reporting Violations

Any member of the School community may report an alleged violation of the School Code of Conduct. Reports can be submitted with an Incident Report and should be submitted as soon as possible after the alleged violation occurs. Upon receipt, the Chief Student Conduct Officer will review the report. If the information received is sufficient to warrant a Code of Conduct investigation, the Chief Student Conduct Officer will assign the case to a Student Conduct Administrator, who will be responsible for the case from initial contact with the accused student through adjudication. If the alleged violation is egregious enough to warrant suspension or expulsion, the Chief Student Conduct Officer will convene a judicial hearing panel and assign a panel chair.

Investigation

If warranted, a Student Conduct Administrator will conduct a prompt, thorough, fair and impartial investigation of an incident.

The assigned Conduct Administrator will notify the accused student or students in writing that the School is investigating an allegation of a violation of the Code of Conduct made against them with the date, time, location and nature of the alleged violation. The written notification will also inform the parties how to challenge participation of the Conduct Administrator on the basis of bias or a conflict of interest; inform the student(s) of their right to an advisor and set a date and time for the student to meet with the investigators within three business days of receipt of letter.

During the investigation, the student will have an opportunity to be heard, to submit information and any evidence, to identify witnesses who may have relevant information and to submit questions that they believe should be directed by the Investigator to each other or to any witness.

Investigations for conduct matters typically will be completed within fifteen business days while classes are in session. Investigations may take longer due to intercessions or School closures. Any extension, and the reason for the extension, will be shared with all parties involved in writing via electronic communication. The accused student may request a hard copy of such notice.

Adjudication Procedure

Administrative Notice: Students involved in any incident or policy violation will meet with a Student Conduct Administrator to discuss ways to resolve the alleged violation(s). A violation may be resolved or addressed through a conduct meeting, administrative conduct hearing or conduct hearing panel. The Chief Student Conduct Officer may determine which form of resolution is appropriate depending on the nature and severity of the violation.

Prior to any formal conduct proceeding, the student will be informed, in writing, of the following:

  • The day, date, time and location of hearing, with at least three business days’ notice, unless the student waives this right or the Dean of Student Development (or designee) believes extraordinary circumstances exist.
  • The specific School policies that have allegedly been violated.
  • The right to have an Advisor accompany the student to the hearing.
  • In cases of Conduct Hearing Panels, in addition to the above listed information, the student will receive, in writing, the names of the hearing panel members and how to challenge participation by any member of the panel for conflict of interest.

Administrative Decisions: Students that have gone through an administrative hearing with a Student Conduct Administrator or Conduct Panel will receive written notification of the outcome of the hearing detailing the following:

  • The determination of responsibility for the alleged policy violation(s);
  • Any accompanying sanctions, including due dates, as a result of being found responsible for the policy violation;
  • The process by which to appeal the outcome of the case.

Appeal: Sanctions rendered by a Student Conduct Administrator, Conduct Panel or Academic Affairs Administrator/Panel may be appealed to a designated appeals officer or panel. Appeals must be submitted to the Chief Student Conduct Officer (for Code of Conduct violations) or Office of Academic Affairs (for violations involving academic misconduct) in writing within 72 hours (3 business days) of the written notification of the decision. It is the responsibility of the person presenting the appeal to demonstrate grounds for such action.

Appeals for sanctions from Code of Conduct violations may be made on the following grounds:

  • Procedural error: Appealing party alleges that there was a deviation or change from the procedure outlined in the adjudication process which may have had a material impact on the outcome of the decision.
  • New evidence: Appealing party alleges that subsequent to the hearing determination, new evidence became available which could have had a material impact on the outcome of the hearing.
  • Severity of sanction: Appealing party alleges that the sanctions imposed are either too severe or too lenient in light of the violation or are inconsistent with the type of sanctions imposed on others who were found to be responsible for substantially similar violations.

The designated appeals officer or panel may uphold or overturn the sanctions given by the Student Conduct Administrator or Conduct Panel, return a case for further review, modify sanction(s) within reason or deny appeal request. In all cases, the decision reached by the designated appeals officer or panel is final.

Organization Conduct

Student clubs or organizations, upon recognition by the School, become responsible for acting in accordance with School policies and all other applicable School regulations. The School may take action when the behavior of the members of a student organization violates School policy. Both individual and organizational Code of Conduct action may be pursued for the same behavior. Student organizations may be held responsible for acts of individual members when the members are acting on behalf of the organization. These acts include, but are not limited to, the following categories:

  • When a member violates School policy and other members present either fail to discourage such activity or actively condone the violation.
  • When the violation is directly related to the organization’s activities or an environment created by the organization.

Alleged violations will be adjudicated as outlined in this conduct process. The following sanctions may be imposed upon student organizations found to have violated School policy:

  • Disciplinary sanctions as outlined in this process under Disciplinary Sanctions.
  • Deactivation or suspension of the club or organization; loss or restriction of privileges, including but not limited to School recognition or funding for a specified period of time as determined through the disciplinary sanction.

Disciplinary Sanctions

There are disciplinary sanctions the School will use, depending on the severity or the frequency of the violation under consideration. The following is a list of sanctions, of which one or more may be imposed:

Status Sanctions

Reprimand (R): The student will be issued a verbal or written warning that the student has violated the Code of Conduct. Records are maintained in the student’s file via electronic means and are taken into account in the event of future violations.

Residence Hall Probation (RHP): Written notice that the student’s behavior is unacceptable. The student's behavior is monitored closely and the student may be restricted from participating in residence hall activities. Records are maintained in the student’s file via electronic means and are taken into account in the event of future violations. Any further violations while the student is on RHP may result in immediate action, including but not limited to, disciplinary probation, restriction from the housing selection process, immediate removal from the residence hall, or suspension or dismissal from the School.

Disciplinary Warning (DW): Written notice that the student’s behavior is unacceptable and that further misconduct may result in more severe penalties. Disciplinary warning is for a specified period of time and may be accompanied by other educational sanctions or restrictions. Records are maintained in the student’s file via electronic means and are taken into account in the event of future violations. After the warning period, the warning status is not considered part of the student’s permanent record.

Disciplinary Probation (DP): Written notice that the student is no longer in good standing with the School. Disciplinary probation may accompany conditions including, but not limited to, denial of privileges, restriction from participation in certain activities, the requirement that specified activities be completed, or other educational sanctions. Probation is for a specified period of time and may be accompanied by conditions and/or other educational sanctions. A student on disciplinary probation may not represent the School in any official capacity (Teaching Assistant, Residence Assistant, Ambassador, etc.), hold an office in School groups of any kind including Student Council, participate in School-sponsored travel, or may be removed from School promotional material. Violation of disciplinary probation is considered grounds for further disciplinary action, including suspension or expulsion. At the conclusion of the disciplinary probation period, the student is returned to good standing. Electronic records are maintained in the student’s file and are taken into account in the event of future violations. These records become part of the student’s permanent record at the School.

Suspension (S): Written notice to the student of separation of the student from the School for a designated period of time after which the suspended student may petition to the School for re-enrollment to the School. The petition must demonstrate that the student has satisfied any accompanying terms of the suspension. A student who has been suspended is required to vacate on-campus housing (if applicable) within 24 hours of written notice and is prohibited from entering School property without prior approval from the Dean of Student Development, even as an audience member or guest. Students who are suspended are required to leave campus within 24 hours of notification unless the decision qualifies for and is awaiting an appeal hearing. Faculty are not obligated to permit make-up of missed assignments, and absences from class are not considered excused. No refunds will be issued and the suspension becomes part of the student’s permanent record and will be accompanied by a transcript remark.

Expulsion (EX): Expulsion is the permanent separation of the student from The Juilliard School. A student who is expelled is required to leave campus within 24 hours of notification. If the decision qualifies for, and is awaiting an appeal hearing, the student will be placed on an interim suspension. A student who has been expelled is prohibited from entering any School premises (including as an audience member or guest), participating in any School activity or program, and may not apply for readmission. No refunds will be issued and the expulsion becomes part of the student’s permanent record and will be accompanied by a transcript remark.

Educational Sanctions

Any sanction may be accompanied by, or substituted with an appropriate assignment(s) that the student is directed to complete. The student will be given specific deadlines for the completion of these assignments. Failure to meet the deadlines may be grounds for further disciplinary action. Records are maintained electronically and are taken into account in the event of future violations. Educational sanctions may include, but are not limited to:

  • Educational training including participation in educational seminars, workshops or other trainings.
  • Community restitution including programming requirements or service hours that benefit the School community.
  • Written papers including:
    • Reflection paper: The student will write a paper reflecting on the incident, including, but not limited to, how the incident has affected themselves and those around them.
    • Research paper: The student will write a paper researching a specific topic, and will have to include several sources and citations to receive credit.

Academic Sanctions

Any sanction may be accompanied by, or substituted with,  an appropriate assignment(s) that the student is directed to complete. When a student is found responsible for academic misconduct or dishonesty, there are a wide variety of sanctions that can be applied as standalone sanctions or in conjunction with status sanctions, educational sanctions, or accompanying terms for sanctions within the Code of Conduct. Academic sanctions include, but are not limited to:

  • Oral or written reprimand;
  • Make-up assignment;
  • Mandated Writing Center attendance or tutoring;
  • No credit issued for original assignment/exam;
  • A failing grade (F) issued for original assignment/exam;

  • Denial of participation in rehearsals, performances, or like experience;
  • Termination from leadership position (i.e. Teaching Assistantship, Fellowship, or like)
  • Denial of participation in Juilliard competitions, grants, or other award-based opportunities.

Accompanying Terms for Sanctions

A conduct administrator or panel may impose accompanying terms to any sanction designed to ensure responsible behavior and the well-being of the School community, help the responsible student learn from the experience, and amend the effects of the conduct on the aggrieved student. The following terms may accompany any of the sanctions described above, except when noted:

  • No Contact Order: The student will be issued a No Contact Order which prohibits direct or indirect interaction.
  • Loss/Denial of Privileges: The student will be denied of privileges, including but not limited to, termination of leadership positions, loss of membership in School-sponsored groups, limited ability to use campus or School resources/facilities, removal from performances and/or rehearsals, denial of participation in Juilliard competitions, grants, or other award-based opportunities and removal from promotional or marketing materials for the School.
  • Parent/guardian notification: Parents/guardians may be notified, in accordance with applicable regulations, of the outcome of any student conduct hearing.
  • Health/Counseling notification: Health/Counseling staff may be notified, in accordance with applicable regulations, of the outcome of any student conduct hearing. Health/Counseling staff may be asked to provide an assessment and/or continued care, if applicable.
  • Faculty/Staff notification: Faculty/Staff may be notified, in accordance with applicable regulations, of the outcome of any student conduct hearing.
  • School file entry: A written entry of a violation and sanction into a student's official School file. A copy of the written notification to the student of the outcome of the hearing is placed in the student's official School file. Records are maintained in the student’s file via electronic means and are taken into account in the event of future violations
  • Restitution: Restitution is the repayment to the School or to an affected party for damages to property resulting from a violation of the Code of Conduct.
  • Removal from School housing: Separation of a student from School-owned housing (residence hall) may accompany the sanction of any student conduct hearing. The separation from School housing must be for a designated period of time. Conditions for readmission to School housing may be specified.
  • Transcript remark: A transcript remark is a notation on a student's official School transcript. A transcript remark may accompany a suspension or expulsion.
  • Fines: When appropriate, a fine may accompany the sanction of any student conduct hearing. In general, fines may range from, including but not limited to, $25 (e.g., damage or theft to School property, failure to evacuate when a fire alarm sounds) to $1,000 (e.g., pulling a false alarm).
  • Other accompanying terms: Other terms designed to ensure responsible behavior may accompany the sanction of any student conduct hearing. These terms may include but are not limited to, educational projects, meetings with educators/counselors, community restitution, housing relocation and other assignments as warranted.

Record Keeping and Disclosure

Retention Policy

The School will keep a confidential record of all reports and proceedings under this Policy. This information will be used by the School to monitor repeat complaints against the same individual and to document the incidence of Code of Conduct violations in the Juilliard community. Juilliard will maintain and report disciplinary files for a minimum of seven years from the date of incident or for four years after a student’s graduation or separation, whichever extends the longest. Records of students who continue into new programs will be retained and the retention period extended as appropriate. After the maximum file retention period, the files will no longer be reportable except in cases resulting in suspension or expulsion which are retained indefinitely. Records may be maintained longer in the School’s sole discretion.

Disciplinary proceedings conducted by the School are subject to the Family Educational Records and Privacy Act (FERPA), a federal law governing the privacy of student information. FERPA generally limits disclosure of student information outside of the School without the student’s consent, but it does provide for release of student disciplinary information with a student’s consent in certain circumstances.

Any information gathered in the course of an investigation may be subpoenaed by law enforcement authorities as part of a parallel investigation into the same conduct, or required to be produced through other compulsory legal process.

Disposal of Records

In the absence of any legal action or current School investigation, conduct records may be destroyed or disposed of upon completion of their use and generally will be destroyed at the end of their retention period. The appropriate method of destruction depends on the Record’s physical form or medium and subject matter or content. They should not be placed in unsecured trash or recycling receptacles unless first rendered unrecognizable. Paper records will be redacted, burned, pulverized or shredded and electronic records will be destroyed or erased. Absent any special instructions or unique circumstances, retaining any record past its mandatory retention period should be on an exceptions-only basis after weighing the potential usefulness of the Record against cost or space limitations.

Standards of Fairness and Student Rights

Certain procedural rights shall be guaranteed to a student in any Juilliard proceeding in which they stand to bear significant injury, such as expulsion, suspension, permanent reprimand or other stigmatizing actions. All students are therefore guaranteed full protection of the following rights:

  • The right to notice of charges whenever formal action upon such charges is initiated. Such notice will be given within a reasonably prompt period and with sufficient factual particularity so that the student may reasonably investigate the charge and prepare the defense.
  • The right to know, prior to the hearing, the contents of, and the names of the authors of, any written statements that may be introduced against them and the right to rebut unfavorable inferences that might be drawn from such statements.
  • The right not to be compelled to be a witness against themselves.
  • The reliance upon evidence shall be determined by fundamental principles of fair play. However, rules of evidence in courts of law shall not, as such, be applied.
  • The right not to be sanctioned unless the decision maker is persuaded that it is more likely than not that the student is responsible.
  • The right to have the case processed without prejudicial delay.

I. Abuse of the Student Conduct System

1. Students must understand and abide by all processes, procedures, and directives issued during the student conduct process. Violations pertaining to the abuse of the student conduct system include the following:

  1. Falsification, distortion or misrepresentation of information within the conduct process.

II. Academic Misconduct and Dishonesty

Academic misconduct and dishonesty encompass all classroom, studio, and performance work. The School defines academic misconduct as any action or attempted action that may result in creating an unfair academic advantage for oneself or an unfair academic advantage or disadvantage for any other member or members of the academic community. Students at Juilliard have an important role in fostering individual and communal commitment to academic integrity and are expected to be honest and forthright in their academic endeavors. The maximum possible sanction which may be imposed, and which will necessarily depend on the degree of seriousness of the case, is dismissal from the School.

2. Prohibited collaboration or consultation

A student shall not collaborate or consult with another person on any academic activity unless the student has the express authorization from the faculty member. It is the responsibility of the student to seek clarification on whether or not use of materials or collaboration or consultation with another person is authorized prior to engaging in any act of such use, collaboration or consultation. If a faculty member has authorized a student to use materials or to collaborate or consult with another person in limited circumstances, the student shall not exceed that authority. If the student wishes to use any materials or collaborate or consult with another person in circumstances that are not clearly allowed by the professor, the student should first consult with the faculty member to see if the action is allowable. Prohibited collaboration or consultation shall include but is not limited to:

  1. Collaborating when not authorized to do so on an examination, take-home test, writing project, assignment, or coursework;

  2. Collaborating or consulting in any other academic or co-curricular activity after receiving notice that such conduct is prohibited;

8. Bribery

A student shall not offer, give, receive, or solicit a bribe of money, materials, goods, services or anything of value for the purpose of procuring or providing an academic advantage.

9. Submission of paper or academic work purchased or obtained from an outside source

3. Amnesty Policy for Alcohol and/or Drug Use

The health and safety of every student at The Juilliard School is of utmost importance. As such, in cases of significant intoxication as a result of alcohol or other substances, the School encourages students to seek medical or other assistance for themselves or others. An Amnesty Policy benefits our campus by encouraging students to make responsible decisions in seeking medical attention in serious or life-threatening situations that result from alcohol and/or other drug use or abuse and in any situation where medical treatment or other assistance is reasonably believed to be appropriate. This policy seeks to diminish fear of disciplinary and conduct sanctions in such situations and to encourage individuals to seek needed medical or other attention to ensure their health and safety, as well as the health and safety of others.

Juilliard also recognizes that students who have been drinking and/or using drugs (whether such use is voluntary or involuntary) at any time that violence occurs, including but not limited to domestic violence, dating violence, stalking, or sexual assault, may be hesitant to report such incidents due to fear of potential consequences for their own conduct. Juilliard strongly encourages students to report domestic violence, dating violence, stalking, or sexual assault to appropriate School officials. A bystander acting in good faith or a reporting individual acting in good faith that discloses any incident of domestic violence, dating violence, stalking, or sexual assault to Juilliard officials or law enforcement will not be subject to the School’s Code of Conduct action for violations of alcohol and/or drug use policies occurring at or near the time of the commission of the domestic violence, dating violence, stalking, or sexual assault.

If medical or other assistance is sought or a student otherwise needs to report an incident of violence, the Division of Student Development will not pursue conduct charges against the following individuals for violations of the School’s Alcohol and Drug Policy:

  • The intoxicated student
  • Student(s) actively assisting the intoxicated student

Actively assisting requires that an individual:

  • Call NYPD (911) or seek another individual qualified to assess the student’s condition, such as a Resident Assistant (RA) or other Residence Life professional
  • Monitor the intoxicated student’s condition

The following are not covered by the Amnesty Policy:

  • Students waiting until the police or other authority arrive before seeking assistance
  • Violations of the Code of Conduct other than the alcohol/drugs policy
  • Possession with the intent to distribute drugs

Actions by the Division of Student Development:

  • The intoxicated student (and possibly those who were attending to/assisting the student) will be required to meet with a member of the Student Development staff who may issue educational requirements that may include, but are not limited to, alcohol and/or drug education, counseling, and/or a substance abuse assessment.
  • Serious or repeated incidents will prompt a higher degree of concern/response.
  • Failure to meet with a School staff member and/or failure to complete the educational assignments or treatment recommendations normally will result in disciplinary action.
  • The student will be responsible for any costs associated with drug or alcohol education interventions.

IV. Building and Space Usage

Juilliard Identification (ID) Cards

The Juilliard ID card is proof of an individual’s affiliation with the School.

New students will be issued ID cards during new student orientation and registration. Each student is strongly encouraged to display their ID while inside the Irene Diamond Building, especially during evenings and weekends (displaying ID is mandatory on Saturdays when Juilliard Pre-College and MAP are in session). The purpose is to readily distinguish Juilliard community members from outside patrons and visitors.
