Privacy - If you are not a student, but have questions about a particular case due to your involvement as a parent, guardian or advisor, please be aware that in most circumstances without a FERPA release we cannot legally share details about cases – past or present – with you. Students may file a FERPA release form at the Registrar's Office. 

Distance Delivery Methods - Any student who does not currently reside in Corpus Christi at the time of their conduct proceeding may request meetings and/or hearings be held in a virtual medium to allow for their full and equal participation in the conduct process. The type of medium will be determined by the Student Conduct Officer and will be made in an attempt to provide as little alteration to the current conduct process as possible.

Students with Disabilities - Any student with a disability has the right to request reasonable accommodation in order to ensure their full and equal participation in the conduct process. Students wishing to request reasonable accommodations should make those requests directly to Disability Services (DS). Students do not have to disclose details regarding the conduct issue to SDS to request reasonable accommodation, except to the extent that it may assist in the determination of reasonable accommodations. Accommodations are determined on an individual basis by SDS staff in consultation with the Associate Dean of Students.

Student Leadership - Student Conduct & Community Standards has several opportunities for students who are seeking experiences to stand out from their peers as they enter the job market or continue their education. The Student Conduct Board works closely with the Student Conduct Officer to administer the conduct process and help define what it means to be a responsible Islander. Participation in the program(s) can assist students in heightening their leadership abilities, critical thinking skills, reasoning, logic and communication skills. In particular, participation can create experiences which can help students stand out in grad school, med school and law school applications and/or show future potential employers a high level of ethics and  accountability. Applications are always being accepted via I-Engage. Access to the application is available through the student resources link on the left.

Complaint Resolution - The University is committed to appropriate resolution of complaints as efficiently and effectively as possible. We believe providing a mechanism for complaints to be heard gives us the opportunity to improve our service. For more information about complaint resolution, visit the following link.

Campus Security and Fire Safety Report - The Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi Campus Security and Fire Safety report includes statistics for the previous three years concerning fires reported at student housing and reported crimes that occurred on-campus; in certain off-campus buildings or property owned or controlled by TAMU-CC; and on public property within, or immediately adjacent to and accessible from, the campus. The report also includes and institutional policies concerning campus security, sexual assault, and other matters. You can obtain a copy of this report by contacting the University Police Department at (361) 825-4444 or by clicking the link found HERE.
