Office of Student Conduct Authority

The Dean of Students is designated by the University president to be responsible for the administration of the student code of conduct and general student policies.

When a student accepts enrollment into the University, the student agrees to be governed by all applicable University policies. The University, through the office of the Dean of Students, maintains the exclusive authority to impose student disciplinary sanctions for proscribed conduct.

Each student will have an electronic copy of the student code of conduct and general University policies emailed to him or her. These policies can also be accessed on the University webpage at https://my.alfred.edu/student-policies. Hard copies are on file at both libraries, the Powell Campus Center information desk, each hall director’s office, and the office of the Dean of Students.
