Office of Student Conduct
and Community Standards

Formerly the Office of Student Conduct

OSCCS is the beginning point of all conduct and academic integrity complaints against students and student organizations and is an impartial resource for all parties in the complaint resolution process. 


The Office of Student Conduct and Community Standards (OSCCS) facilitates student growth and learning through an educational conduct process that upholds MIT’s values and community standards. 

How we fulfill our mission:
The OSCCS fulfills our mission by supporting students and collaborating with the Committee on Discipline and campus partners. We faciltate the MIT student conduct process, advise student judicial committees, and offer wide array of workshops and presentations to help students understand community values and standards.  We work to promote community standards of behavior and support the academic mission of the Institute by enhancing student’s academic achievement as well as personal and ethical development.

Committment to Inclusive Practices
We are committed to carrying out our work in a manner that meets the needs of our diverse community. We do this by:

  • Continually educating ourselves and our stakeholders,
  • Intentionally engaging in inclusive practices,
  • Striving to refine our procedures to reduce bias, and
  • Appreciating students’ intersecting identities and acknowledging our own power and privilege.

We pledge to implement the above strategies. Furthermore, we understand that inclusive practices are always evolving, and thus commit to regularly revisiting these strategies.

Please note that as of March 14, 2022, MIT has made COVID-19 testing, daily health attestations, and wearing face coverings in most settings on campus (with the exception of MIT Medical facilities and MIT Shuttle buses) optional; more information can be found on the Institute’s COVID-19 response website. The Committee on Discipline and the Office of Student Conduct and Community Standards both strongly encourage Institute community members to respect each other’s choices regarding face coverings and other COVID-19 risk mitigation strategies and for individual community members to address concerns they have with others directly in a respectful manner.  

Special Procedures for COVID-19 Policy Violations
