Failure to Follow UCLA COVID-19 Requirements Could Result in Expulsion

UCLA releases health mitigation rules

By Sam Catanzaro

Failure to follow COVID-19 requirements could result in expulsion for UCLA students this fall under health mitigation rules recently implemented by the University. 

While UCLA is conducting online learning this semester, about 700 students are expected to live on campus this fall as reported by the Daily Bruin, expected to move in starting September 25. 

On September 15, UCLA announced several requirements for individuals present on the campus, including faculty, staff, students, third-party contract workers and invited essential visitors. 

Under the requirements, individuals must: 

  • Wear a face covering on campus.
  • Honestly complete symptom monitoring and screening. 
  • When in isolation or quarantine, follow all restrictions and instructions
  • Show certificate of clearance.
  • Comply with on-site temperature checks (where applicable).
  • Maintain physical distancing.
  • Disinfect work or classroom/study spaces 
  • Follow restrictions on events and gatherings “All events and gatherings are currently prohibited by local health order,” the University said. “When permitted by modified public health order, follow all requirements forevents and gatherings, including holding any for events gathering outdoors where feasible, and adhering to physical distancing and occupancy limitations.” 
  • Visitors: “Visitors to any building on campus, including on-campus housing, are limited to those who are essential for operations. Visitors to campus buildings should be by appointment only and pre-registered in a visitor log maintained by the building or office scheduling the essential visit that includes a visitor’s name, phone number and email address for possible future case investigations,” the University said.

For students living in campus housing, the University has implemented a three-strike system for violation of these rules if the offense is deemed to be a first-level offense. 

For first-level offenses–defined as a violation of public health requirements that are not willful and do not constitute an immediate serious threat to the health of others–an initial incident results in a letter setting forth the requirements. A second incident results in a referral to the On-Campus Housing Conduct Process with the potential of probation and a COVID-19 quiz if the resident acknowledges responsibility and agrees to comply with public health mitigation measures. If the resident does not agree to comply, greater sanctions may be imposed a third incident referral to On Campus Housing Conduct Process with the potential sanction of exclusion from Housing and referral to the Office of Student Conduct for continued failure to comply will be enforced. 

For second-level offenses–defined as violations that are reasonably believed to be a willful disregard of the requirements or to constitute an immediate serious threat to the health of others–the incident will be referred to the Office of Student Conduct, which will consider sanctions including interim suspensions or expulsion.
