In keeping with its historic concern for students, Wake Forest has a legitimate interest in student welfare in and out of class, on campus and off campus. The Wake Forest University Undergraduate Student Code of Conduct (the “Code of Conduct”) is grounded in concern for student actions that are inconsistent with obligations as members of the educational community. The Code of Conduct establishes standards of behavior to support the values of the University and uphold the best interests of students. If a student or organization has violated these standards of behavior, appropriate outcomes will be imposed. The resulting findings and outcomes may become part of the conduct record for individual students or organizations.

Student Conduct supports the mission of Wake Forest University through the use of learning-focused, procedurally sound accountability processes designed to facilitate the development of responsible global citizens and find the truth, while valuing the individuality of each person and their lived experiences.

Alleged violations of the Code of Conduct will be heard by and in accordance with procedures set by the Office of the Dean of Students. To review the Code of Conduct, go to:
