Office of Student Conduct

The Office of Student Conduct, administered through the Office of the Dean of Students at the University of Massachusetts Boston, employs a philosophy that is student-centered. We are dedicated to encouraging responsible and civil community conduct, promoting student development through individual responsibility, and facilitating a fair and impartial disciplinary process in situations where violations of the Student Code of Conduct have occurred.

Students, faculty, and staff who believe there has been a violation of the code may contact our office to discuss options available for reporting incidents. The Office of Student Conduct also provides conflict resolution services that help students resolve disputes in an effective and fair manner. If you find yourself in a dispute with another person, these conflict resolution services can provide you with valuable skills to resolve current and future conflicts.

Students who are transferring, applying to professional schools, sitting for bar exams, requiring a background check, or needing information communicated to others about their performance may need official forms completed on their behalf.
