While abroad, students are subject to the disciplinary regulations of University College Dublin, as well as Irish law. Cornell students bear responsibility to the Cornell University Code of Conduct while studying abroad because they remain registered at the ILR School and Cornell throughout their semester in Dublin.

Students need to be aware that violation of Irish laws will make them liable to legal proceedings within judicial systems that may be very different from those of the United States. No study abroad student should contemplate the distribution or use of illegal drugs, the penalties for which may be extremely strict.

Any student who violates either the UCD code of conduct or Irish law risks being sent home before the end of the semester.

Any disciplinary action taken at UCD will become part of your permanent record at Cornell and will be communicated to the Cornell Judicial Administrator.
