Student Conduct



The Student Conduct unit of the Dean of Students Office assists students in developing a personal and communal standard of responsibility and ethical behavior.  The office guarantees that every student and student organization will be afforded a fair and equitable student conduct process.  We are committed to upholding the Student Code of Conduct at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. 



The Student Conduct process at The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga can be a pivotal component in a student's development and is meant to educate students about healthy behavior, ethical decision making, and self-accountability. The Student Conduct system provides students with the opportunity to:

  1. Adhere to the Student Code of Conduct and community standards at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga;
  2. Maintain good standing with the University.

Through the Student Conduct Process, it is an objective of the Dean of Students Office that students will derive an educational experience that will foster growth and development as well as an ethical framework that can ensure a successful academic and social career at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. 

Students are entitled to an educational dialogue in which hearing officers review the student's behavior as well as any factors and circumstances surrounding the behavior.  As a result, a hearing officer, or a student conduct board will review a student's alleged behavior and if necessary construct a formal conclusion and outcome that is meant to assist the student and uphold the standards of the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga community.
