Student Conduct

Code of Student Responsibility and Student Conduct Process

Certain rights and responsibilities come with being a student at DePaul University, and these are outlined in the Code of Student Responsibility. The student conduct process is initiated if there is a violation of the code, and is in place with the goal of balancing students' rights and responsibilities with the safety, educational and development needs of the university community. Please review the Code of Student Responsibility and Student Conduct Process.

Report a Non-emergency Violation of the Code

To report a possible violation of the code to the Dean of Students office (DOS) for further review and possible conduct action, please click 'Report Now,' which appears on the right hand side of this page. 

These incident reports are for reporting non-critical or non-emergency incidents. If you have an emergency situation, please call 911 or Public Safety:

Illegal Downloading

The Dean of Students Office also handles illegal downloading cases. Any student suspected of illegally downloading information  will have their access to the DePaul network removed, and will receive materials from one of the assistant deans of students with further information. All illegally downloaded materials must be removed, and only then will a student's access to the DePaul network be restored.

As required by Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, DePaul University prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in its education programming and activities. Find information  on how to file a Title IX complaint for sexual violence, sexual harassment or other sex discrimination here.
