B. Student Code Of Conduct

General Provisions

Sec. 101. Introduction

By enrolling at The University of Texas at San Antonio, a student neither loses the rights nor escapes the responsibilities of citizenship. All students are expected to obey federal, state, and local laws, the Rules and Regulations of the Board of Regents of The University of Texas System, the rules and regulations of The University of Texas at San Antonio, and directives issued by an administrative official in the course of his or her duties. A student who enrolls at the University is charged with the obligation to conduct himself or herself in a manner compatible with the University’s function as an educational institution; consequently, conduct which interferes with the use or utilization of University facilities by other persons may be punished regardless of whether such conduct is specifically proscribed by the provisions of the Student Code of Conduct.

Sec. 103. Application

  1. The Student Code of Conduct applies to individual students, prescribes the standards of conduct expected of students enrolled at the University, outlines actions that can be taken when conduct is not in conformity with the prescribed standards and establishes due process procedures for the imposition of such actions.
  2. A student may be punished by the University for conduct that is proscribed by the University even though the student may be punished by local, state, or federal authorities for the same conduct, but the penalties imposed by the University shall not be used merely to duplicate penalties imposed by local, state, or federal authorities.

Sec. 104. Miscellaneous

  1. Computation of time: Where the required action must be taken on a specified number of days either before or after the date upon which an act or event takes place or is to take place, the date of the act or event from which the time is computed shall not be included.
  2. Service: Service of every notice, request, or decision required by the Student Code of Conduct may be made by delivering a copy of the documentation to the person to be served either in person or by mail.

Plagiarism also includes, but is not limited to:
    1. Failing to credit sources in a work in order to pass it off as one’s own work;
    2. Having someone else complete assigned work and then passing it off as your own;

Disciplinary Sanctions

Sec. 301. Authorized Disciplinary Sanctions

Any one or more of the actions listed below may be imposed upon a student who has engaged in conduct which violates a rule, regulation, or administrative order of the University, a provision of the Regents’ Rules of The University of Texas System, or a federal, state, or local law. The disciplinary actions assessed in a particular case will be dependent upon the nature of the conduct involved, the circumstances and conditions which existed at the time the student engaged in such conduct, and the results which followed as a natural consequence of such conduct.

  1. Disciplinary warning;
  2. Disciplinary probation;
  3. Withholding of grades, official transcript, or degree;
  4. Bar against readmission or drop from current enrollment and bar against readmission;
  5. Restitution or reimbursement for damage to or misappropriation of institutional or System property;
  6. Suspension of rights and privileges, including participation in athletic or extracurricular activities;
  7. Failing grade for an examination or assignment or for a course and/or cancellation of all or any portion of prior course credit;
  8. Suspension from the institution for a specified period of time;
  9. Expulsion (permanent separation from the institution);
  10. Educational programs;
  11. Revocation of degree, denial of degree, and/or withdrawal of diploma;
  12. Deferral of sanction; or
  13. Other sanction(s) as deemed appropriate under the circumstances.

Sec. 302. Explanation of Disciplinary Sanctions

  1. Disciplinary warning is a written statement expressing disapproval of conduct.
  2. Disciplinary probation indicates that further violations may result in suspension or expulsion. Students who are assessed this sanction will be removed from behavioral probation automatically upon expiration of the probationary period.
  3. Bar against readmission means that a student may be prohibited from admission or enrollment at the University. This sanction is among those that may be imposed upon a student who fails to respond to a summons from the Office of the Dean of Students or their designee to discuss allegations that the student has engaged in conduct which may result in disciplinary action.
  4. Restitution requires a student to reimburse the University for loss from, damage to, or unauthorized taking or use of property owned or leased by the University when the conduct of the student has caused or contributed to cause such loss. The student shall be advised of the amount of the loss and that failure to make restitution by a specified date will result in suspension from the University until such time as restitution shall have been made.
  5. Suspension of rights and privileges means that a student shall not be eligible to participate in official events or activities of the University, whether athletic or non-athletic, shall not join a registered student organization or participate in any meetings or activities of a registered student organization of which he or she may already be a member and shall not be appointed or elected to or continue to function in any office or position within student government or the staff responsible for publication of a student newspaper. Students may also be barred from entering specified buildings or restricted from using particular facilities. This sanction may be enforced in part or in full.
  6. A failing grade means an “F.” This sanction is among those that may be given when a student is found responsible for scholastic dishonesty in a course.
  7. Suspension from the University prohibits the student on whom it is imposed, during the period of suspension, from entering the University campus without prior written approval of the Vice President for Student Affairs, from being initiated into an honorary or service organization, and from receiving credit for academic work done during the period of the suspension. Suspension may also prohibit the student from being admitted to, enrolling at, or entering the campus of another component institution of The University of Texas System without prior written approval of the chief student affairs officer of the institution at which the student wishes to be present. The Dean of Students or the Hearing Officer may, however, permit the student to receive credit for academic work completed at another institution during the period of suspension, except when suspension is imposed for academic dishonesty. The Dean of Students or the Hearing Officer may impose conditions related to the violation(s), and failure to meet such conditions or terms of the sanction will be considered an additional violation.
  8. Expulsion from the University means that a student will be dropped from current enrollment, and a bar against readmission imposed. Expulsion is a permanent separation from the University and prohibits the student on whom it is imposed from entering the University campus without prior written approval of the Vice President for Student Affairs. Expulsion may prohibit the student from being admitted to, enrolling at, or entering the campus of another component institution of The University of Texas System without prior written approval of the chief student affairs officer of the institution at which the student wishes to be present. Educational programs are activities developed to expand the student’s understanding of the regulation or policy and/or help the student learn more about himself or herself in relation to the policy or the violation.
  9. Possession or distribution of drugs or alcohol: The University will impose at least the minimum disciplinary sanction of suspension for a specified period of time or suspension of rights and privileges, or both, for conduct related to the use, possession, or distribution of drugs that are prohibited by state, federal, or local law. Other sanctions that may be imposed for conduct related to the unlawful use, possession, or distribution of drugs or alcohol include disciplinary probation, payment for damage to or misappropriation of property, suspension of rights and privileges, suspension for a specified period of time, expulsion, or such other sanction as may be deemed appropriate under the circumstances.
  10. Debts to the University: Students who owe a debt to the University may be denied admission or readmission to the University and have their official transcripts, grades, diplomas, and degrees to which they would otherwise be entitled withheld until the debt is paid. Students who write bad checks to the University for tuition and fees will have their registration canceled. Bad checks written to the University for other purposes will subject the student to legal and/or disciplinary action.
  11. Deferral of sanction (e.g., probation, suspension) may be imposed on a student for whom the specific sanction deferred is appropriate but for whom there are mitigating circumstances as determined by the Office of Student Conduct and Community Standards or Hearing Officer. If a student is found to have violated any rule of The University of Texas at San Antonio and/or The University of Texas System while the deferred sanction is in effect, the minimum sanction for such a violation will be the sanction that had been deferred. The facts of the case may be decided by a University Hearing Officer and/or appealed to the Vice President for Student Affairs, but the minimum sanction may not.

The Office of Student Conduct and Community Standards or Hearing Officer may impose conditions related to the offense. Failure to meet such conditions shall be considered an additional violation.

Sec. 303. Authorized Academic Sanctions

  1. A faculty member, the Office of Student Conduct and Community Standards, or a Hearing Officer may impose one or more of the following sanctions for scholastic dishonesty:
    1. written warning that further scholastic dishonesty violations may result in a more severe sanction;

    3. retaking of examination or resubmission of assignment; or
    4. failing grade or reduced final grade for the course.

Initiation of Disciplinary Charges

Note: UTSA is in the process of revising these procedures in cases pertaining to Title IX issues (allegations of sexual harassment, including sexual violence). Any such revisions will become effective immediately upon their publication in this Information Bulletin.

Sec. 401. Investigation

  1. Upon receiving information that any student has allegedly violated Regents’ Rules, University regulations, or administrative rules, the Office of Student Conduct and Community Standards shall investigate the alleged violation. The Office of Student Conduct and Community Standards may dismiss the allegation as unfounded or summon the student. In cases where the alleged violation is sexual harassment or sexual violence, the investigation will be conducted by Equal Opportunity Services (EOS). Please refer to Section 801 - 808 for the process regarding these incidents.
  2. Any student may be summoned by written request of the Office of Student Conduct and Community Standards for a meeting for purposes of the investigation and/or to discuss the allegations. The written request shall specify a place for the meeting and a time at least three (3) weekdays after the date of the written request if the request is sent regular mail, or at least two (2) weekdays after the date of the request if the request is sent by e-mail or hand delivered. The written request may be mailed to the address appearing in the records of the registrar, e-mailed to the student at the e-mail address on record with the U.T. institution, or may be hand delivered to the student. If a student fails to appear without good cause, as determined by the Office of Student Conduct and Community Standards, the office may bar or cancel the student’s enrollment or otherwise alter the status of the student until the student complies with the summons, or the office may proceed to implement the disciplinary hearing procedures provided in Section 501, et seq. The refusal of a student to accept delivery of the notice, the failure to maintain a current address with the registrar, or failure to read mail or e-mail shall not be good cause for the failure to respond to a summons.
  3. The purpose of the meeting is to allow the Office of Student Conduct and Community Standards to discuss, for the purposes of investigation the alleged incident/offense(s) with the student. At this meeting the student is given a copy of the Student Code of Conduct.

Sec. 402. Disposition of the Charges

The student must choose one of two decision-making approaches: (1) an administrative decision made by the Office of Student Conduct and Community Standards; or (2) a formal hearing.

  1. When the student elects not to dispute the facts upon which the charges are based and agrees to the sanctions the Office of Student Conduct and Community Standards assesses, the student may execute a written waiver of the hearing procedures yet retain the right to appeal the decision of the Office of Student Conduct and Community Standards only on the issue of the sanction. This administrative disposition shall be final and there shall be no subsequent proceedings regarding the charges.
  2. In any case where the accused student disputes the facts upon which the charges are based and elects the formal hearing as the decision-making approach, or refuses to execute a written waiver of a hearing, such charges shall be heard and determined by a fair and impartial Hearing Officer. A Hearing Officer will be chosen in accordance with the procedures of the institution.

Sec. 403. Interim Discipline

  1. Pending a hearing or other disposition of the allegations against a student, the Dean may take such interim disciplinary action as is appropriate to the circumstances when such action is in the best interest of the institution. This includes but is not limited to an immediate suspension and bar from the campus when it reasonably appears from the circumstances that the continuing presence of the student poses a potential danger to persons or property or a potential threat for disrupting any activity authorized by the University. Notwithstanding (B), listed below, the Dean of Students may withhold the issuance of an official transcript, grade, diploma, certificate, or degree to a student alleged to have violated a rule or regulation of The University of Texas System or its institutions which would reasonably allow the imposition of such sanction. The Dean may take such actions pending a hearing, resolution by administrative disposition, and/or exhaustion of appellate rights if the Dean has provided the student an opportunity to provide a preliminary response to the allegations and in the opinion of the Dean, the best interests of The University of Texas System or the institution would be served by this action.
  2. When interim disciplinary action has been taken, a hearing of the charges against the student will be held under the procedures specified in Section 501, et seq. A hearing following interim disciplinary action will generally be held within 10 days after the interim disciplinary action was taken; however, at the discretion of the Dean of Students, the 10-day period may be extended for a period not to exceed an additional 10 days.
  3. As an alternative to a hearing of the charges before a Hearing Officer, the accused student may choose to have the charges disposed of in accordance with an administrative decision as set forth under procedures specified in Section 402.

  3. The provisions of this section shall not prohibit either party from offering at the hearing evidence that is strictly in rebuttal to evidence offered by the other party.

  2. No camera or photographic equipment of any kind, nor any equipment which may be used to record or transmit sound, shall be permitted in the hearing room or in the hallway outside of the hearing room during the progress of the hearing or any recess thereof.

The number of seats to be provided and the arrangement thereof shall be determined by the Office of Student Conduct and Community Standards after giving consideration to the size of the hearing room and necessity for maintaining clear access to all doors to the hearing room. Admission of the public shall be on a first-come basis, and no one shall be allowed to stand, sit on the floor, or bring additional seats into the hearing room. Designation of the hearing as a public hearing does not mean that everyone who wishes to attend will be accommodated, and the refusal to admit persons after seating within the hearing room has been filled will not be a denial of a public hearing.

Sec. 508. Order of Proceedings

  1. The hearing shall be called to order and shall proceed in the following manner:
    1. the Hearing Officer shall read the charges against the accused student, explain the rights of the parties, and entertain questions from either party concerning the procedures to be followed;

The accused student shall be entitled to respond to the recommendation of the Office of Student Conduct and Community Standards.

  1. Each witness shall swear or affirm that the testimony he or she will give will be true. The Hearing Officer shall administer the required oath or affirmation to each testifying witness.
  2. At the request of either party, all witnesses may be removed from the hearing room so they cannot hear the testimony of any other witness. Neither party nor their advisors shall be placed under the rule. Witnesses removed shall be instructed by the Hearing Officer not to converse with each other or with any other person about the case other than with the parties or their advisor, and that they are not to read any report of or comment upon the testimony given at the hearing while isolated. Violation of such instructions will result in the imposition of such sanction as the Hearing Officer may deem appropriate.

Sec. 511. Record of the Hearing

The hearing will be recorded. If either party desires to appeal the decision of the Hearing Officer, the record can be made available to the appealing party by submitting a written request. The official record will consist of the recording of the hearing, the documents received in evidence, and the decision of the Hearing Officer. At the request of the President, the recording of the hearing will be transcribed, and both parties will be furnished a copy of the transcript.

Sec. 512. Evidence

The Hearing Officer may ask questions of witnesses, the parties, or their counsel as may be deemed appropriate to ascertain the facts, or to aid the Hearing Officer in deciding upon the admissibility of evidence, the credibility of a witness, or the weight given to evidence admitted. The Hearing Officer is entitled to have the advice and assistance of legal counsel from the Office of General Counsel of the U.T. System. Legal rules of evidence do not apply to Student Code of Conduct hearings.
  3. Either party may object to the admission of evidence upon any ground that they deem appropriate. The Hearing Officer shall rule upon such objections and either admit or exclude the objectionable evidence.
  4. Evidence which is irrelevant, immaterial, or unduly repetitious will be excluded by the Hearing Officer upon objection of either party.
  5. Documents, letters, writings, pictures, drawings, or objects that a party plans to offer in evidence shall first be given to the Hearing Officer to be marked and identified as the exhibit of that party and listed by the Hearing Officer. After being marked and identified, each exhibit shall be shown to the opposing party. Unless the opposing party disputes the authenticity of the exhibit or has no knowledge with respect thereto, the exhibit may be offered without authentication; however, the exhibit may be objected to on grounds other than authenticity.

Sec. 513. Agreements of the Parties

Any of the provisions of this chapter relating to the time within which an act must be performed or the procedures for conducting the hearing may be altered by written agreement of the parties, duly signed and presented to the Hearing Officer for inclusion in the record of the case.

Sec. 514. Decision of the Hearing Officer

The Hearing Officer shall render and send to the Office of Student Conduct and Community Standards and the student a written decision that contains findings of fact and a conclusion as to whether the accused student is responsible for the violations as charged. Upon a finding of responsibility, the Hearing Officer shall assess a sanction or sanctions specified in Section 301 and/or Section 303. When an accused student is found responsible for the illegal use, possession, or sale of a drug or narcotic on campus, the assessment of a minimum sanction provided in Section 202 (A) (12) is required.

Sexual Harassment

Sec. 801. Investigation

  1. Upon receiving information that any student has allegedly violated the University’s sexual harassment policy, Equal Opportunity Services (EOS) shall investigate the alleged violation and forward their investigation results to the Dean of Students, hereafter referenced as the Dean. After being notified that EOS has completed its investigation, the accused student and the complaining student have seven (7) weekdays from the date of the report to submit comments regarding the report to the Dean.
  2. If a no contact directive is given by EOS, the Dean and/or UTSA Police Department, it shall remain in effect until the final disposition of the case.

Sec. 802. Disposition of Allegation

The Dean will review the investigation results submitted by EOS and any written comments submitted by the respondent and/or complainant pursuant to Sec. 801(A). After review, the Dean will take one of the following actions; 1) request further investigation by EOS into the complaint, (2) dismiss the complaint if the findings of the completed investigation are that there is no Student Code of Conduct violation, (3) proceed with disciplinary charges if the findings are inconclusive and the Dean determines that a hearing of the charges would be beneficial, or (4) proceed with disciplinary charges if the findings indicate that the sexual harassment policy was violated. A decision that the policy was violated shall be made upon the record provided by the EOS investigator, any comments submitted by the complainant or respondent, and the totality of circumstances surrounding the conduct complained of, including but not limited to the context of that conduct, its severity, its frequency, and whether it was physically threatening, humiliating, or was simply offensive in nature. Facts will be considered on the basis of what is reasonable to persons of ordinary sensitivity and not on the particular sensitivity or reaction of an individual. If additional investigation is requested, no decision regarding charges will be made until the investigation is complete.

To the extent authorized by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), the Dean will provide parties, the accused student, and the student complainant, with a copy of the investigation report with the final statement of findings.

Sec. 803. Burden of Proof

The Dean shall find a student responsible for violating the University’s sexual harassment policy if the greater weight of the credible evidence supports the alleged violation.

Sec. 804. Interim Discipline

  1. During the investigation of an alleged violation pursuant to Sec. 801, EOS may recommend that the Dean take interim disciplinary action. The Dean may take interim disciplinary action as is appropriate to the circumstances when such action is in the best interest of the institution, pending a disposition of the allegations against a student. This includes, but is not limited to, an immediate suspension and bar from the campus when it reasonably appears from the circumstances that the continuing presence of the student poses a potential risk that harassment will continue to harm the complaining student, other members of the university community, or any visitor. The Dean may take such actions pending a disposition of the sexual harassment or sexual assault case and/or exhaustion of appellate rights.
  2. When interim disciplinary action has been taken, a disposition of the charges against the student will be held under the procedures specified in Section 802, et seq. A decision pursuant to Sec. 802 following interim disciplinary action will generally be held within 10 days after the interim disciplinary action was taken; however, at the discretion of the Dean, the 10-day period may be extended for a period not to exceed an additional 10 days.

Upon appeal, the review shall be limited to the EOS investigation results, the Dean’s decision and final statement of findings, and any written appeal statements. The accused student and the complaining student shall be given an opportunity to submit a written statement on the appeal. The written statement of appeal must be submitted to the VPSA no later than 14 days after receipt of the Dean’s decision and final statement of findings. If the Dean’s decision and final statement of findings is sent by mail, the date the decision is mailed initiates the 14 day period for the appeal. The written request may be mailed to the address appearing in the records of the registrar, e-mailed to the student at the e-mail address on record with the university, or may be hand delivered to the student. A copy of the written statement of appeal shall then be provided to the non-appealing party, who shall have an additional five (5) weekdays in which to file a written response. The Dean may submit a response to the appeal which must be received by the VPSA no later than five (5) weekdays after the copy of the appeal was received. The VPSA will respond within 30 days of receipt of the full appeal and any response. The VPSA may approve, reject, or modify the decision in question, or may request additional investigation by EOS before rendering a final decision.
  2. The decision of the VPSA shall be communicated in writing to all parties, including the complainant, within 30 days after receiving the appeal, EOS investigation results, including any additional investigation requested, the Dean's decision, final statement of findings, and any written appeal statements that have been received.
  3. The decision of the VPSA is final.

Sec. 807. Effect of Appeal Upon Disciplinary Action

  1. An appeal of the decision of the Dean to the VPSA shall suspend the imposition of the prescribed disciplinary action pending final disposition of the appeal, except for a no contact directive or any interim discipline imposed by the Dean. A no contact directive shall remain in effect until the final disposition of the case.
  2. If any disciplinary action has been suspended during appeal of a case and the VPSA, whose decision becomes final, finds the original disciplinary action can no longer be imposed because of passage of time, the VPSA may specify a new period of time for which the original disciplinary action will be imposed, or in any case where imposition of the original disciplinary action will no longer be effective because of a change in the status of the student involved, the VPSA shall prescribe a substitute disciplinary action deemed appropriate to the conduct involved.

Sec. 808. Communication of Sanctions

Both the complainant and respondent will be notified, in writing, about the outcome of both the complaint and the appeal.
