PLU Policy and the Law

Students are separately accountable both to local, state, and federal laws and to the PLU Student Code of Conduct.  When local, state, or federal law and the PLU Student Code of Conduct overlap, the university may invoke the Code to protect its own interests and standards. 

A student who breaks the law must be prepared to accept the consequences, since they have no more immunity from the law than other citizens.  Students participating in PLU study away programs, or who are enrolled at PLU as international students, are also expected to adhere to the laws of their host country and uphold the standards outlined in PLU’s Student Code of Conduct.
