Nonacademic Misconduct

The UW System (UWS) and its schools expect that students demonstrate appropriate behavior and follow state and federal laws. The UWS Administrative Code outlines polices that all students are expected to follow. 

The UWRF Student Code of Conduct is made up of UWS Chapters 14, 17, and 18. These chapters outline both academic (14) and nonacademic (17 and 18) disciplinary procedures for all UW System students, as well as, prohibited behavior. These policies apply both on and off campus.
