Committee on Student Conduct

Committee on Student Conduct

We are always looking for new members to serve on the committee!

The Committee on Student Conduct hears and considers the appeals of students who have been accused of, or found responsible for, violating the University of Central Oklahoma Code of Student Conduct. Generally, this committee of faculty members and students hears and considers appeals from students that have received sanctions that consist of one (1) of the following:

  • Temporary Suspension
  • Suspension
  • Expulsion
  • [Class] Credit Recession
  • Degree Revocation

The Committee on Student Conduct also hears initial misconduct cases, in which the Director of Student Conduct delegates due to certain circumstances, such as: the possibility of perceived bias by the Office of Student Conduct, and/or major precedent-setting cases. The Committee on Student Conduct typically hears only 3-4 cases per semester. Thus, a minimum time commitment is required by members. The Committee on Student Conduct has the following time commitments:

Once a year, each COSC member is required to attend a 3-hour training session

For further information, questions, and/or concerns please contact Rod Costner at wcostner@uco.edu.

Committee on Student Conduct
Student Member Approval Process

1. All interested students shall be subjected to a background check by the Director of Student Conduct or designated employee to reveal whether or not the student has been found responsible for violating 3 or more University policies or has been found responsible for violating any University policies within the past 6 months.

2. When a student’s interest form has been submitted, the Office of Student Conduct will verify the following information on the interested student:

a) Current Student
b) Conduct History at UCO

(Interested Students who have been “found responsible” for 2 or less non-threatening/non-violent University violations and not “found responsible” for      any University violations within the past 6 months will be reported as “CLEARED.”  Interested Students that have been “found responsible” for violating 3 or more University policies or has been found responsible for violating
any University policies within the past 6 months will be reported as “NOT CLEARED.”)

Once this information has been verified, the Office of Student Conduct shall call and verify the references. 

3. Once the references have been verified and a student has been approved, the student shall be informed as soon as possible by written notification (i.e. email, faxmail, typewritten and hand-delivered). 

If the interested student is denied, the denial shall be based upon enrollment status and/or conduct history alone.  If the interested student is denied and does not agree with their denial, then questions should be directed towards the Office of Student Conduct.

4. The Office of Student Conduct will send the newly approved student member of the Committee on Student Conduct information about the next Committee on Student Conduct meeting, next training opportunity, and upcoming hearing opportunities.

5. Student members must attend training sessions prior to sitting on a hearing committee.
