Highlighting the word Policy

Conduct Concerns

Ok, so a student might have gotten into some trouble in class, in a residence hall, or off campus. Our goal is to help them learn from the mistake and move forward.

Academic Misconduct Policies and Process
Copying off of someone's test, plagiarism, claiming credit for work, and all other forms of academic misconduct are not tolerated at UW-Stevens Point. If a student is confused about what exactly academic misconduct is, there is information available regarding rules and procedures for the process. Students can also visit with their faculty or learn how to cite the work of others at the Writing Lab.

Behavioral Misconduct Policies and Process
Every community has guidelines for acceptable behavior, and so do we. If a student appears to have violated a policy on campus or in the community, the student conduct process is an integral part of the educational mission of the university. Click link to get to UWSP Chapter 17 and Chapter 18, which describe the policies and processes.

Concerns and Resources
There are times when a student will make a poor decision because they are under stress or need support in another area of their lives. We have put together a list of concerns and resources for you.

Medical Amnesty Policy
Your safety, and everyone's safety, is our first priority. Call for help and get the support you or a friend might need.

Notifying Parents
UW- Stevens Point honors each student’s right to privacy on behavioral matters. There are several notable exceptions to this policy, however. The university may choose to contact a parent or guardian:

  •  When a student’s repeated abuse of chemicals is jeopardizing their own health or that of others.

  • When repeated efforts to gain compliance with university alcohol, drug and other behavioral policies have failed and the student’s status with the university is in question.

  • When a student’s physical or emotional health has become threatened or has become potentially dangerous to others, and/or when the university feels the student may be incapable of making safe healthy decisions for themselves.

Report Concerns
Students, faculty, and staff can report concerns and issues to the Dean of Students. Our reports page contains a number of report types.

Residential Living Policies
For students living in our residence halls, there are specific guidelines and policies pertaining to living in these communities. For important information about the policies and a ton of other great information, check out the Residential Living Handbook.

Disciplinary sanctions are the educational outcomes, courses, or restrictions assigned to you if you are found responsible for violating a University policy. They can range from a warning to being expelled from the University. You can find the full list of possible sanctions in UWSP Chapter 17 (17.10) and for alcohol or drug policy violations, check out the sanction grids below.
