Student Conduct and Academic Integrity
ADDRESSING STUDENT CONDUCT
View the complete Student Code of Conduct here.
The Student Code of Conduct contains University regulations that describe prohibited behavior for students. If a student is causing a classroom disruption but does not appear to be a threat to him/herself or others, discuss the disruptive behavior with the student individually, and file a written complaint with the Office of Student Conduct and Community Standards. Remember, you have the authority to ask a disruptive student to leave a classroom or office (temporarily).

Any alleged violation should be submitted, in writing, as soon as possible after the event takes place.

CONFIDENTIALITY IN STUDENT CRISIS SITUATIONS
The Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) prohibits the University from releasing students' educational records to a third party, including a member of the student's family, without the student's prior written consent. EKU employees with a legitimate educational interest can access student records, and employees may release information to other employees who have a legitimate educational interest. Exceptions exist, such as health and safety emergencies, and releasing to parents when they claim the student as a dependent on their tax return.
Parents are encouraged to ask their students to create a WEB-4-Parent account so that interested parents can have 24/7 access to student academic and financial records through EKUDirect. Inquiries about WEB-4-Parent can be made through the EKU Registrar's Office by calling 859-622-2320, or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
