Student Conduct

WSU prioritizes the safety and well-being of members of the university community. Student Conduct Policies ensure that all students uphold both the academic and personal standards that come along with being a part of the WSU community.  

A violation of any WSU Conduct Policy may result in the student being referred to the University’s conduct system, regardless of any action taken by civil authorities.

Members of the university community are subject to all state, county, and municipal laws/ordinances regulating the sale and use of alcoholic beverages and illegal substances, as well as WSU regulations pertaining to the same.
