Introduction

When students enter Texas Christian University, they take upon themselves certain responsibilities and obligations, including satisfactory academic performance and social behavior consistent with the mission, philosophy and objectives of Texas Christian University. Student conduct, therefore, is not considered in isolation within the college community but as an integral part of the education process. This Code of Student Conduct outlines student behaviors specifically prohibited at TCU, but is not exhaustive. Any conduct may be considered inappropriate and prohibited if it is inconsistent with the University’s mission, vision, or core values. Members of the TCU community are committed to personal and academic integrity, respect, honesty, compassion, and recognizing the inherent worth and dignity of all persons. TCU does not tolerate behavior that contradicts these values. All students are expected to know and abide by this Code of Student Conduct.
