The Office of Student Conduct strives to uphold and support a high standard of personal and academic integrity for all students in a manner that is consistent with the educational goals and mission of the University and UT System. This is achieved through a conduct process that focuses on personal responsibility and accountability for students’ actions and the impact those actions might have on the greater community.

The office is engaged in educating the community regarding the University’s standards and procedures for student conduct. These standards and procedures promote civility and protect the rights and safety of UTA. The disciplinary process shall be fair, equitable, educational and developmental, supporting the commitment that students become responsible members of the University community.
