Student Conduct

Student Code of Conduct

The University of South Florida (USF) values a community based on the principles of integrity, civility, and respect.  As such, USF community expects students to behave in a manner that supports these principles.  The Student Code of Conduct is a document which describes behavior that is counteractive to these principles and how USF will hold students accountable for those inappropriate behaviors.

Students are responsible for compliance with all public laws as well as USF rules, policies and regulations.  Students accused of a crime may be prosecuted under the appropriate jurisdiction and also disciplined under the Student Code of Conduct.  The USF may pursue disciplinary action even if criminal justice authorities choose not to prosecute, and it may also act independently of the criminal justice process.

Any member of the USF community may refer a student for an alleged violation of the Student Code of Conduct by filing a referral in an email with the Office of Student Conduct.  The Office of Student Conduct also reserves the right to initiate or follow up any investigative leads where there is reasonable belief of possible violations of the Student Code of Conduct.
