Student Policies

BYU policies tell university community members how to do what they want to do and—when necessary—what they aren’t authorized to do.

While BYU students commit to adhering to all applicable university policies (see the Church Educational System Honor Code), here are the Integrity and Compliance Office’s picks for the ten policies that most commonly apply to students, in alphabetical order:
