Student Conduct

The Office of the Dean of Students is committed to providing an educational conduct process that informs students of their rights as members of the university community and educates them about the responsibilities they have to themselves and the other members of the university community.



Student Conduct Code

When incidents happen and University of Northern Iowa students are involved, our office is the main university entity that works with students to resolve disciplinary matters. Students, faculty and staff who believe there has been a violation can contact our office to discuss options available for reporting incidents or can report the allegation of student misconduct online.

Conduct Process

The conduct process is the outline of steps we engage in with a student to address allegations of misconduct through the Student Conduct Code. Exploring the process and understanding the steps may help a student navigate the process.


Good Samaritan Provision

We encourage students to seek professional and medical assistance for themselves or others who may be experiencing an alcohol or other drug related emergency without fear of disciplinary repercussion.

Background Checks

The Office of the Dean of Students can work with current and former students to complete appropriate documentation providing verification of their disciplinary status with the University of Northern Iowa. Such requests are typically related to an individual wishing to transfer, apply to a graduate program or other professional school, or are requested by a place of employment.

The Office of the Dean of Students is located in 118 Gilchrist Hall along with the Vice President for Student Life and Student Accessibility Services.
