It is the expectation of The Tianjin Juilliard School that all students are responsible for reading and understanding the information within the Student Handbook, in addition to your rights and responsibilities as a Tianjin Juilliard community member.

Code of Conduct
The Tianjin Juilliard School Student Code of Conduct
The Tianjin Juilliard School Student Code of Conduct ("Code of Conduct") sets out the standards of conduct expected of its students, which supersedes all other School documents, and applies to all students enrolled at the School for their duration, without pause (including breaks and students on a leave of absence), until graduation from the School.
When students choose to accept admission to the School, they accept the rights and responsibilities of membership in the School’s academic and social community. As members of the School community, students are expected to uphold its values by maintaining a high standard of conduct.
Student misconduct is defined as any student behavior that violates rules of the School as stated in this document; contained within any School publication, or on the website; and/or is in violation of applicable laws, rules or regulations of the People’s Republic of China ("Applicable Laws").
Students who are present or accompanying others while in the act of violating the Code of Conduct may be deemed as culpable as the violators and may be subject to sanctions.
Occasionally, the rules of the School and the law will overlap, but the School does not attempt to duplicate the law or legal system. The School reserves the right to pursue matters through its student conduct system that may also be addressed in the legal system.
Serious violations or persistent minor violations of School rules, policies, or regulations may result in suspension or expulsion.
Non-residential students are expected to abide by the same standards of community behavior as residential students as outlined in the Code of Conduct.
The School reserves the right to adjudicate misconduct that occurs off campus or outside the main School Building and Residence Hall (“School premises”) if such misconduct becomes known to the School.
