Any one of the following will be considered theft, and is therefore a violation of law and the Student Code of Conduct:

  • Taking or attempting to take university property or private property with the consent of the owner or person legally responsible for that property.
  • Obtaining University services through fraudulent or devious means.
  • Knowingly possession private or University property that was stolen.

UNIVERSITY DISCIPLINE IN CASES OF VIOLATION OF LAW

Rutgers University students may be held accountable through the University judicial conduct process as well as the local New Brunswick/Piscataway criminal justice system. The University judicial process may be carried out before, simultaneously with, or following any related civil or criminal proceedings. If civil or criminal charges are dropped, or if the student is found not guilty via the criminal justice process, University discipline decisions and/or sanctions will not be subject to alteration or amendment.
