Institutional Standards and Academic Honesty
Academic dishonesty in any form diminishes the University as an institution and all members of the University community. With that in mind, UCSC Extension in Silicon Valley strictly upholds the UC system values. More information on these standards can be found on the following pages.

Official University Policy on Academic Integrity for Graduate Students (UCSC site)
UCSC Extension Silicon Valley, as a unit of the University of California Santa Cruz, has high standards for academic integrity and student conduct. Extension students are expected to conform to a code of conduct that is appropriate to the adult, professional audience we serve. Disruption of teaching, learning, research or administration through such activities as, but not limited to, academic dishonesty (including all forms of plagiarism and cheating), forgery, theft, disorderly conduct, physical or verbal abuse, threats of violence, unsanctioned use of alcohol, unlawful use of controlled substances, or any other action that might threaten UCSC Extension property or the health and safety of any person on UCSC Extension property or attending any UCSC Extension-sponsored event, will not be tolerated and is grounds for severe sanction.
UCSC Extension does not allow auditing. You must be enrolled in a class before attending.
If desired, courses can be taken for no credit. To take a course for no credit, select the "Not for Credit" option, which can be found on the class attendance sheet at the first class meeting. On your transcript and student record, NC will appear next to all classes taken for no credit. All course fees are still required.
