Student Conduct

Students are expected to treat each other with respect, to contribute to the learning community of the university, and to abide by all policies related to student conduct. MAE/TC and MEd/TC students should consult the Student Teaching Handbook for issues related to student conduct in school placements. For graduate Psychology students, the Clinical Training Handbook includes professional codes of ethics governing work in clinical training placements; students are responsible for following these codes. Students in all programs may face sanctions including academic probation, conduct probation, suspension, and/or dismissal from the University for any of the following reasons:

  • Forgery, altering University documents, or knowingly providing false information;
  • Deception of the educational or administrative process of the University;
  • Physical abuse or destruction of University property;
  • Physical abuse, threat of abuse, or abusive behavior toward other students, University employees, and/or their families;
  • Abusive or harassing e-mails or electronic postings directed at faculty, staff, or other students;
  • Theft of University property;
  • Use or sale of illegal drugs;
  • Possession or use of explosives or deadly weapons on campus;
  • Destructive behavior on University property;
  • Repeated behavior problems that interfere with the functioning of classes, learning activities, or the University;
  • Violation of University policies; or,
  • Any action that violates the purposes of the University or the rights of those who comprise the University.

Students suspected of committing any of the above violations of University policy will be accorded procedures consistent with the process outlined in the Student Conduct Policy, 6.103.
