Reporting Code of Conduct Violations

Reporting a Student Code of Conduct Violation: General Conduct Policies and Procedures
The Georgia State University Student Code of Conduct contains policies and procedures to both promote the university mission and protect the rights of students, faculty and staff. Students are obligated to be knowledgeable of and to comply with the university’s rules, policies and procedures. Students are also individually responsible for understanding and exercising their rights, fulfilling their obligations and respecting the rights of others. The Student Code of Conduct articulates the types of actions that infringe upon the campus' climate of civility and the academic integrity of the university. An overarching philosophy of the student conduct process is to provide students with the opportunity to reflect upon their actions and take responsibility for the outcomes of their life and to develop ethical approaches to their decision-making process.

Members of the university community who believe a student violation of the Student Code of Conduct has occurred should submit an Incident Report to the Dean of Students office located in Student Center East, Suite 303. The complaint must state sufficient facts, including specific name(s), date(s), location(s) and description(s) of the alleged act(s) of misconduct to enable the Dean of Students to decide whether further fact finding is necessary.
