Student Judicial Affairs and Community Standards
Procedural and advisory matters, as well as the integrity of the student conduct systems, are the responsibility of the Office of Student Judicial Affairs and Community Standards.
SJACS reviews all student conduct and academic integrity matters. Refer here for a complete description of the student conduct system.

The entire university bears responsibility for maintaining this environment and for taking action to sanction appropriately those individuals involved in violations. SJACS is responsible for establishing and maintaining procedures to support and uphold academic integrity at USC. SJACS coordinates the selection of students for peer review and appeal panels. Students are interviewed, and those selected undergo training in university policies, values clarification and appropriate sanctioning.
