University Disciplinary System

The Disciplinary System is a policy means of implementing adjudication procedures for any student accused of violating the Rules and Regulations which govern the behavior of all members of the University community. The Disciplinary System permits cases of alleged student misconduct, except for cases relating to academic and classroom misconduct, to be considered by the Dean of Students, the University Student Judicial Council, the University Judicial Council, or the Tennessee Uniform Administrative Procedures Act (TUAPA). Choice of hearing councils, other than the TUAPA, shall be assigned at the option of the student(s) except during periods when one council is not available: at which time the case(s) shall be referred to the available council by the Dean of Students. Note: A complete disciplinary manual is available for student perusal.
