Students and their parents/guardians need to know some types of behaviors may be deemed incompatible with membership in the University community and therefore may result in suspension or expulsion from the UW-system. The list below, while not exhaustive, gives some general types and examples of serious misconduct violations that may result in separation from the UW System:

  • Victimizing others (assault, stalking, and harassment)
  • Compromising their own or others' health or safety (assault, arson, severe or repeated alcohol policy violations, selling or using drugs, possession of a weapon)
  • Poor citizenship (theft, vandalism, giving false information, failing to abide by restrictions placed in an earlier disciplinary action)

As of Sep 1, 2009, revised UWS Chapter 17-Nonacademic Misconduct and Chapter 18-Conduct on University Lands are in effect.
