Student Conduct

Student Conduct

Students are expected to conduct themselves in a way that respects the cooperative standards of the Excelsior community and accords with the University’s educational mission. This includes obeying federal, state, and local laws as well as University policies. Not knowing or understanding these standards and policies is not a defense or excuse. Any non-academic, student behavioral conduct incident reports filed are confidential and will only be shared with those involved in the case.

Possible violations of student behavioral conduct include, but are not limited to:

  • Disruptive behavior
  • Harassment (non-sexual)
  • Falsification or alteration of non-academic documents
  • Copyright infringement
  • Misrepresentation
  • Violation of University policies or applicable laws
  • Failure to comply with reasonable and appropriate direction or requests given by University administration, staff, and instructional faculty
  • Use of Excelsior University electronic platforms to:
    • Advertise services or products for personal gain
    • Link an Excelsior website to other sites without authorization
    • Download illegal or inappropriate material
  • Share proprietary, or confidential information about Excelsior sponsored activities, or attempt to hack, alter, damage, or destroy the integrity of electronic information, software or hardware associated with the Excelsior electronic systems

Filing an Incident Report

Students, staff, instructional faculty, and community members who believe they have witnessed, experienced, or otherwise been impacted by a violation of University policy governing student behavioral conduct may report the violation by filing an incident report.
