Disclosure Policy for Criminal Activity

We are committed to maintaining a safe learning environment. As part of that commitment, Indiana University requires applicants to disclose if they a) have been subject to formal disciplinary action (including for example, but not limited to, suspension or expulsion) for academic or non-academic reasons at any high school, post-secondary institution, college or university; b) have been charged with or convicted of a crime (or a foreign legal equivalent) that has not been expunged by a court; and/or c) have engaged in behavior that caused injury to person(s) or personal property (including for example, but not limited to, vandalism or behavior that led to a restraining order against you) which resulted in some form of discipline or intervention.

A previous disciplinary action, charge, conviction, or conduct of the sort identified here does not automatically disqualify applicants from admission to IUPUC, but they do require review by the campus admissions committee.

PLEASE NOTE: By submitting your application to IUPUC, you acknowledge and agree that you have a continuing obligation to inform the University of any formal disciplinary action for academic or non-academic reasons at any educational institution; any legal charges and/or convictions (or foreign legal equivalents) that have not been expunged by a court; and/or any behavior that causes injury to person(s) or property which results in in some form of discipline or intervention that occurs from now until your enrollment at IU. You must provide updated information to the campus admissions committee prior to class registration or class attendance, whichever is applicable. At that time, the campus admissions committee will review the information provided and may consider whether to delay or rescind your admission to IUPUC.

Submit a disclosure if...

  • You have been subject to formal disciplinary action (including for example, but not limited to, suspension or expulsion) for academic or non-academic reasons at any high school, post-secondary institution, college, or university.
  • You have been charged or convicted of a crime (or a foreign legal equivalent) that has not been expunged by a court.
  • You have any current pending criminal charges (or a foreign legal equivalent) against you.
  • You engaged in any behavior that caused injury to any person(s) or property (including, for example, but not limited to, vandalism or behavior that led to a restraining order against you) which resulted in some form of discipline or intervention? 

What should I include in my disclosure?

Please provide a complete explanation (in English) of the disciplinary action, charges, conviction, or other behavior that caused injury to person(s) or property which resulted in some form of discipline or intervention; the dates and court disposition (court ruling or result), the location (city, state, and country), the impact the incident(s) had on you, and a statement granting your permission to officials at all institutions and agencies to release information needed by IU to substantiate statements  made in your application or letter.

Please note the campus admissions committee may request additional information from you and that additional time may be required to review the information you provide.

If you have questions about your application, you may contact the Office of Recruitment and Admissions at 812.348.7390 or email admissions@iupuc.edu.
