Student Code of Conduct

The Student Code of Conduct is published annually in the VCSU Student Handbook. The basic responsibility for student disciplinary actions rests with the Vice President for Student Affairs; the Vice President for Academic Affairs is responsible for cases of academic misconduct. University disciplinary action may include the following: verbal or written reprimands, monetary penalties, loss of university privileges, loss or denial of academic credit, academic or social probation, academic or social suspension, expulsion from the University. Decisions concerning the imposition of penalties are the primary responsibility of the Vice President for Student Affairs or the Vice President for Academic Affairs. In the administration of university discipline, students are accorded the protection of due process. Decisions may be appealed as outlined in the VCSU Student Handbook.
