Student Conduct

For Faculty and Staff,

Please see the guides for managing difficult student behavior and academic dishonesty for helping students and determining when to seek assistance.

Any student who engages in conduct that violates the Regents’ Rules and Regulations, UT System or UT Dallas rules and regulations, specific instructions issued by an administrative official of the University or the UT System acting in the course of his or her authorized duties, violates federal, state, or local laws, or fails to maintain the standard of conduct appropriate for an academic institution, is subject to discipline, whether such conduct takes place on or off campus, or whether civil, or criminal sanctions are also imposed for such conduct.

The Regents’ Rules and Regulations adopted by the UT System Board of Regents include provisions relating to the standards of conduct expected of students. Students who fail to conform to the established standards of conduct are subject to one or more of the disciplinary sanctions listed in the Regents’ Rules and Regulations or UT Dallas Handbook of Operating Procedures. Chapter 49 specifically addresses student conduct issues.

Student Code of Conduct violations can be referred directly to the Dean of Students.
Because you are in daily contact with students, there are times when you may encounter students exhibiting disruptive or distressed behavior. The Dean of Students Office can provide assistance in dealing with difficult situations.
