Student Code of Conduct

The Student Code of Conduct defines behavior expected of all University of Cincinnati students.

It is each student’s responsibility to know and comply with the university’s Student Code of Conduct, and sanctions or penalties are outlined.

Academic behavior considered to be misconduct is defined in the Student Code of Conduct. The code also addresses nonacademic misconduct (such as disturbing the peace, destruction of property, and theft). Disciplinary procedures are explained in a step-by-step manner, and the procedures for appeal of decisions are stated.

In addition to this code, students must adhere to their college’s professional code of conduct and honor codes where applicable. Students should contact the office of the dean for their college to inquire about any applicable conduct and honor codes to ensure compliance. Students can be suspended or dismissed from the university for unprofessional behavior.
