The University of North Georgia strives to educate students and develop leaders who are prepared for community, state, and global service. Consistent with University System of Georgia policies, the University has created a Student Code of Conduct that seeks to protect the safety, rights, and privileges afforded to students and other members of the community. Essential to this purpose, students are expected to be model citizens and their actions and behavior should reflect the core values of the University. Students are expected to adhere to national, state, and local laws; respect the rights and privileges of others; be forthright and honest in all their social and academic conduct; and in general, conduct themselves in a manner which brings credit to themselves and the University of North Georgia.
The University of North Georgia is dedicated not only to learning and the advancement of knowledge, but also to the development of ethical and responsible citizens. It seeks to achieve these goals through a sound educational program and policies governing student conduct that encourage independent thinking and maturity. Each student, as a citizen of the University community, assumes an obligation to follow all rules and regulations.
Included in the Student Code of Conduct are regulations which the University and local communities can expect students to uphold upon admission at the University of North Georgia, an explanation of the student conduct process, rights of students and student organizations as they pertain to the conduct process, a list of possible sanctions, and the appeal process.
