The Dean of Students encourages all students to read the university's student handbook.

The university's student handbook contains many of the policies for students attending Tennessee Tech. The policies in the handbook apply to all students — undergraduate, graduate and part-time. Students are responsible for being aware of these policies and following them accordingly.

The student conduct code applies to students both on and off campus; responsible behavior is expected of Tennessee Tech students wherever they may be. Enrollment at Tennessee Tech implies acceptance of these policies and makes them binding on all Tennessee Tech students.

The provisions of the handbook are not to be regarded as an irrevocable contract between Tennessee Tech and its students. The university reserves the right to change any provision or requirement at any time. Any such revisions will be posted to the online version of the student handbook.

"The Tennessee Tech community holds high expectations of how we live and interact with one another," said Ed Boucher, TTU dean of students. "Respect for self and respect for others, both within and outside of the university community, lie at the heart of our standards of conduct. Students are held accountable for their actions as a necessary part of our community life."

Disciplinary action may be taken against a student for violation of the policies that occur on institutionally owned, leased or otherwise controlled property, while participating in international or distance learning programs, and off campus, including clinical affiliation sites, when the conduct impairs, interferes with, or obstructs any institutional activity or the mission, processes and functions of the university.
