Service Immersion Conduct Clearance Process

Participating in a Center for Community Engagement (CCE) service immersion program includes demonstrating an ability to abide by Gonzaga University’s standards, values, and expectations as outlined in the Student Code of Conduct. The CCE Office requests conduct history information from the Office of Community Standards prior to approving a study abroad application.

The following students are not cleared for study abroad programs:

  1. Students who are on probation or suspension, subsequently students who are placed on probation or suspension before leaving will have their clearance revoked.
  2. Students with outstanding or overdue sanctions.

Process Overview

Based on the nature of the service immersion program, the program size and staffing level, the CCE Office may deny a service immersion application based on information provided by the Office of Community Standards. This information includes violations of the University’s assault, drug, sexual misconduct, drug, alcohol or other policies resulting in highly disruptive behavior.

The CCE Office will review student conduct status until the time of study abroad program departure. Violations of University policy after acceptance into the service immersion program may result in removal from the program and forfeiture of any fees, including but not limited to, program fees, airfare, and others.

Students represent Gonzaga University while serving domestically and abroad and are responsible for abiding by applicable laws, University standards, and service immersion rules and expectations. Violations of the Student Code of Conduct may result in disciplinary action while participating in a service immersion program or upon a student’s return to Gonzaga University.
