Student Code of Conduct

The Alhambra Medical University student body is as diverse in interest as it is in culture, ethnicity, professional background and age. Those who make up the student body are passionate about alternative medicine, focused on their academic responsibilities and committed to becoming successful health care practitioners. AMU provides a professional environment where the training, experience and maturity of students from other health care professions are respected and appreciated. Prospective students need to demonstrate strong motivation, desire and commitment to serve as a health care professionals.


The Student Code of Conduct governs the behavior of our student body. The purpose of a published Code of Conduct is to state the specific authority and responsibility of the University in maintaining social discipline, to outline the process for a legitimate grievance, and to establish the procedures to be followed to ensure “due process,” which protects accused students from unfair imposition of penalties and sanctions. All members of the University community are expected to use reasonable judgment in their daily campus life and to show due concern for the welfare and rights of others.


The following misconduct would constitute violations of our community values and standards:

  • Violations of published University policies, rules or regulations.

  • Violations of federal, state or local law, including but not limited to, conduct on University premises or at University sponsored or supervised activities.

  • Use, possession, sale or distribution of alcoholic beverages, drugs, drug paraphernalia, narcotics or other controlled substances on campus.

  • Smoking in any interior area of the University, including classrooms, labs, restrooms, hallways, or lounge areas is prohibited.

  • Endangering, threatening or causing physical harm to any person.

  • Attempted or actual theft of University property.

  • Disruption or obstruction of teaching, research, administration, or other University activities.

  • Harassment, whether it be physical, verbal, graphic, or written, based on race, sex, color, ethnic or national origin, religion, age, sexual orientation, or disability. Also, unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other forms of such verbal or physical conduct may constitute harassment.

  • Cheating, plagiarism, or other forms of academic dishonesty, including aiding another student in an act of academic dishonesty.
