College Code of Conduct Student Defense Advisor - Oklahoma

Universities in Oklahoma all have codes of conduct. Violating one of the rules that they contain can lead to a disciplinary violation that can tarnish your academic record, and be used against you by potential employers after you graduate.

Protecting your professional and academic reputation by defending against an accusation that you broke your school's code of conduct can make a huge difference for your future. Having a lawyer as your college disciplinary advisor can go a long way.

Code of Conduct Violations in Oklahoma

Every school has its own code of conduct that outlines what is prohibited on campus. While each code is different in its own way, there are sections that all, or nearly all, schools in Oklahoma have in common. In some instances, provisions seem to be identical across numerous schools. Violating any of them, however, can lead to a disciplinary violation that puts a mark on your academic record.

Underage Drinking

One of the most prominent parts of a college's code of conduct in Oklahoma tends to deal with underage drinking, and with drinking on campus in general. Because underage drinking is so common in college, most schools take a very hard stance in an attempt to keep it from happening. Many schools even prohibit drinking alcohol on campus for adults, as well.


Another unique part of college is hazing and initiation rights, particularly for student groups and fraternities. Since recent hazing episodes that turned fatal or near-fatal, colleges in Oklahoma have taken steps to prevent hazing routines that degrade initiates too much, or that put them into danger. People responsible for activities that go over the line can face disciplinary proceedings.

Academic Misconduct or Cheating

A huge part of a college's code of conduct has to do with academic integrity, as schools in Oklahoma take their reputation as institutions of higher learning very seriously. Violating this part of the code – by plagiarizing, cheating on a test, or altering official school documents – can amount to academic misconduct, which is one of the most serious blemishes you can have on your academic record.

Sexual Misconduct and Title IX Violations

Finally, sexual misconduct is a serious allegation that many students in Oklahoma and the U.S. face at some point during their academic career. Whether for harassment, assault, stalking, or rape, the penalties that you can face if you receive a disciplinary violation for sexual misconduct are severe, and can even end with you being expelled from school. Worse, they can lead to Title IX investigations, which can lead to criminal referrals.
