The university’s philosophy on student conduct is educational in nature. Oklahoma State University recognizes that students will make mistakes and, at times, decisions that do not align with personal values and university expectations. Student Support & Conduct is charged with helping students reflect and learn from these decisions by holding them accountable for their behavior. Through the conduct process, Student Support & Conduct assists students in ethical, personal, and intellectual development as well as developing character and integrity. Student Support & Conduct offers education, challenge and support to students struggling with behavioral issues, and makes appropriate referrals to other resources as necessary. 

The OSU Student Code of Conduct serves to educate students about their civic and social responsibilities as members of the OSU academic community. The Student Code of Conduct informs students of the standards of behavior expected, the processes in place for enforcing the rules, and the university’s response to violations. Hard copies can be obtained in 328 Student Union and around campus.
