Office of Student Conduct

Student Code of Conduct
All University of South Alabama students have agreed to abide by the standards for behavior set forth by the university. The University of South Alabama strives to uphold the ideals of freedom of inquiry, freedom of thought, freedom of expression and freedom of the individual. The primary purpose of the Code of Student Conduct is to protect and preserve a civil and safer educational environment.  The disciplinary actions prescribed are meant to protect and preserve a quality educational environment.  


The Office of Student Conduct is designed to promote, manage, and maintain a safe and thriving campus community conducive to academic excellence.  University policies and standards are balanced with the educational development of its individual students by strengthening the concepts of social justice, global consciousness and citizenship, proper decision making, conflict management and resolution, restoration, civility, respect for self and others, accountability, integrity, and ethical development. 

The Office of Student Conduct, along with the University Disciplinary Committee (UDC), is tasked with providing effective, efficient, fair, and consistent due process procedures; investigating allegations of misconduct; adjudicating cases; resolving non-academic disciplinary matters; and, when necessary, imposing sanctions for violations of the Code of Student Conduct published in The Lowdown.
