Jurisdiction

The Ferris State University Code of Student Community Standards shall apply to conduct that occurs on Ferris State University property, at Ferris State University sponsored activities, and to off campus conduct that adversely affects the Ferris State University community and/or the pursuit of its objectives.  Each student shall be responsible for his/her conduct from the time of application for admission through the actual awarding of a degree, even though conduct may occur before classes begin or after classes end, as well as during the academic year and during periods between terms of actual enrollment, and even if the conduct is not discovered until after a degree is awarded.  Additionally, the Code shall apply to a student’s conduct even if the student withdraws from school while a disciplinary matter is pending.  The Director of Student Conduct shall decide whether the Code shall be applied to conduct occurring off campus, on a case by case basis, at his/her sole discretion.


Further information regarding policies and procedures applying to Registered Student Organizations (RSO) may be found in the Registered Student Organization Handbook published by the Office of Student Leadership and Activities. Any individual involved with an RSO is encouraged to read the RSO Handbook.
