Members of the Slippery Rock University community have developed a set of expectations for student behavior.
These expectations are contained in the Student Code of Conduct. The Student Code of Conduct outlines the rights and responsibilities of all students, and it provides a fair process to evaluate and respond to allegations of misconduct.
All students are expected to read and be familiar with the Student Code of Conduct (Click here for PDF version of code).
