Rush Medical College: Student Misconduct

Rush Medical College's Committee on Student Evaluation and Promotion (COSEP) is charged with investigating and adjudicating charges of student misconduct of a nonacademic nature, including but not limited to violation of commonly accepted ethical standards of an academic community, such as cheating and plagiarism; falsification of student records, transcripts, financial aid forms or applications; unlawful use or possession of controlled substances on the Medical Center campus; conviction of a crime deemed serious enough to render the student unfit to pursue his/her profession; or other conduct that is inconsistent with generally accepted standards of behavior within an academic community or the medical profession. All charges of student misconduct of a nonacademic nature will be presented to the Associate Dean for Medical Student Programs.
