Student Behavioral Concerns

University of Washington students are expected to be responsible members of the Husky community. As defined in Student Governance Policy, Chapter 209 Section 7.D, behavioral misconduct includes:

  • Harassment or bullying
  • Hazing
  • Failure to comply
  • Concerning engagement online
  • Disruptive behavior
  • Retaliation

See Section 7.D for more detailed information and definitions of academic misconduct.


Behavioral misconduct may only be adjudicated under WAC 478-121 and Student Governance and Policies, Chapter 209 by those who have the authority to initiate a conduct proceeding. This ensures a student’s due process rights, creates consistency in the process, and accountability for any additional misconduct by the student. For additional information about the student conduct process visit Student Conduct Process.
