The Naropa University Student Handbook documents University Policies and Procedures, Community Standards and the Code of Conduct. The Handbook also contains information about the school's history, mission and culture, as well as the full range of resources and services available to students. The Handbook is updated annually by the Dean of Students Office in collaboration with University officials and support services.


2019-2020 Naropa University Student Handbook


The Student Handbook has been developed to help you, the Naropa student, understand and interpret the policies and procedures of Naropa University while understanding autonomy for individual expression and being a community member. The term “student” includes all persons who have confirmed attendance (by submitting an admission deposit or enrolling in courses), have enrolled at and/or are taking courses at the university, full or part-time, undergraduate, graduate, or non-degree seeking. You are personally responsible for reading, understanding, and adhering to all policies and information printed in Naropa University’s course catalog and this handbook, as well as all official notices sent via Naropa student email, which may include revisions to this handbook. Failure to read and understand the policies detailed in these documents does not excuse you from being subject to those regulations and their enforcement.




Gender Equity, Sexual Misconduct and Relationship Violence Policy and Procedures

Naropa University is committed to cultivating a university environment free of harassment, discrimination and violence and will take steps to prevent such conduct, its reoccurrence and discriminatory effects on members of the Naropa community. The University does not tolerate acts of sexual harassment, sexual assault, gender discrimination, sexual exploitation, domestic violence, dating violence or stalking.


Anti-Discrimination Policy and Procedures

To preserve an equitable, responsible, and humane atmosphere for study and work, Naropa University affirms the principle that all individuals have a right to achieve their academic and professional aspirations free from discrimination, harassment, and/or related retaliation based upon protected classes.


Student-to-Faculty Grievance Policy and Procedures

Members of the Naropa community may sometimes differ in how they view and experience one another and the University’s mission in the curriculum, the classroom, and in co-curricular and assessment activities, among others. Naropa University views conflict as a potential opportunity for growth, learning, and healing. Most conflicts that arise as part of the educational process will be resolved when students communicate their concerns directly to the faculty member, the department, and/or school most directly involved.


GSCP Guidebooks and Forms

The mission of the Graduate School of Counseling and Psychology (GSCP) is to offer graduate psychology degree programs that are engaged, embodied, contemplative, and informative. GSCP policies and related documents are available on MyNaropa.
