Residential Student Conduct

  • The Office of Housing and Residence Life is committed to creating a campus community that is safe and conducive to a student’s academic success and expects all residents who reside and visit the residence halls to abide by the policies set forth for all students (Code of Conduct) and residential students (Community Guidebook):
  • All students who have an alleged violation of a University and/or Housing policy are afforded due process rights and have an opportunity for their case to be heard by a University administrator or a student panel.
  • If you have questions about the conduct process, contact Beth Paris, Coordinator for Residential Student Conduct, at or (239) 590-7414.

Advisors and Third Party Release

  • According to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), a student’s educational record becomes their own upon reaching the age of 18, or when a student enters an institute of higher education.
  • In order for conduct information to be shared with any third parties, the student must complete a release waiver and designate the specific parties who the student wishes the information to be shared with. Upon signing a release waiver, the student has the right to rescind the release waiver at any time.
