Hoa Sen University in Ho Chi Minh City has issued a regulation saying that students will be kicked out of the school if they are caught offering prostitution services four times.

First-time violators will receive a reprimand, while more severe disciplinary actions including stern warnings and temporary suspension from the university will be applicable to second-time and third-time offenders, respectively.

If the violations are deemed serious, those responsible will be transferred to the relevant authorities for appropriate handling in accordance with the law.

The regulation applies to students in all training programs across all levels of the university.

As per the university's regulations, there are 28 violations that may result in students being subject to disciplinary measures.

The school will expel students who are caught concealing or acting as brokers of prostitution rings and hand them over to police.

Students will also face expulsion if they are found to have arranged for someone to study and take exams on behalf of another student, engage in the trade, transportation, or storage of drugs, or incite others to use drugs.

Expulsion may occur to those found storing and trading weapons, explosives, or prohibited goods for the first time.

Other violations also result in the expulsion of students from the university, regardless of how many times they are committed.

The university stipulates that students belonging to the 2023 cohort must participate in outdoor activities to accrue behavior points which serve as the foundation for applying for scholarships at Hoa Sen University and its affiliated partners.

This regulation is not applicable to students of previous courses.

The new policy has sparked concerns among the students of the 2023 course, who said that it was unreasonable as the university issued the regulation near the end of the first semester.

According to these students, their involvement in university activities is driven by the inherent benefits of the activities rather than the pursuit of behavior points.

They argue that if they are compelled to participate solely for behavior points and are unable to derive any meaningful learning experiences, the activities lose their significance.

Le Thai Huy, director of the Center of Student Experience and Employment at Hoa Sen University, told Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper that the regulations were formulated in accordance with the relevant rules of the Ministry of Education and Training, taking into consideration references from regulations of other universities.

Hoa Sen University vehemently opposes any violations of the law and traditional customs and is committed to taking strict measures against offenders.

During the regulation adoption, the school will impose punishments flexibly on different cases, Huy said.

He added that the university will not hesitate to turn serious offenders over to police, regardless of the number of times they have committed the violations.

Regarding students’ behavior points, he said the university applies the points to encourage students to participate in outdoor activities. The school always accompanies students so that they can improve their ability and skills.

The regulation also helps acknowledge students’ contributions to the school’s activities and is a criterion to honor them or grant scholarships.

It is in line with the regulations of the Ministry of Education and Training, Hoa Sen University’s representative said.

Students have the freedom to choose activities that suit their preferences, Huy noted, emphasizing that the university communicated this plan to its students at the outset of the 2023 academic year in October.

In response to complaints from students who may not fully comprehend the regulations, the university has taken steps to explain the new rules to them, according to Huy.
