Sexual Harassment

Sexual harassment of all persons who participate in University programs and activities is prohibited by law and by University regulation (Policy 380-12). Sexual harassment is unacceptable and will not be condoned on the UC Merced campus.

Clery Act and Crime Statistics

“Safety Matters” is UC Merced’s annual security report. This publication offers information about our police department, campus crime statistics and a wealth of information about safety and security. It can be found at police.ucmerced.edu or learn more about UC Merced’s annual crime statistics at ope.ed.gov/security/.

Catalog Information

This catalog contains information about UC Merced. Because the UC Merced catalog must be prepared well in advance of the year it covers, changes in some programs and courses inevitably will occur. The selection of courses to be offered each semester is subject to change without notice, and some courses are not offered each year. The Schedule of Classes, available on the Web shortly before registration begins, provides more current information on courses, instructors, enrollment procedures and restrictions, class hours, room assignments, and final examination schedules. Students should consult the appropriate school or campus unit for even more up-to-date information. It is the responsibility of the student to become familiar with the announcements and regulations of the university that are printed in this catalog and other campus publications. The catalog is the document of record for degree requirements and is updated every year.
