Student Rights and Responsibilities Top of Page

Each student at the University has the right to learn in an environment free from threats, danger, or harassment. Students also have the responsibility to conduct themselves in a manner that complies with campus policies and procedures. UWS Chapters 17 and 18 of the Wisconsin Administrative Code list the university policies students are expected to uphold and describes the procedures used when students are accused of misconduct. Chapter 17 also lists the possible responses the university may apply when a student is found to violate policy.

UW-Superior students are also obligated to complete course work with honesty and academic integrity. They also have the right to expect that all students will be graded fairly and have the right of due process should they be accused of academic misconduct. UWS Chapter 14 of the Wisconsin Administrative Code explains the policies and procedures that need to be followed in the case of academic misconduct.
