Get Involved

Student Conduct and Academic Integrity advises the Student Conduct Board. The Student Conduct Board is comprised of students appointed by the Office of the President to hear cases and provide impartial outcomes for both individual students and student organizations.

Student Conduct Board

The Student Conduct Board is a student-led organization, whose members are appointed by the president to provide independent, peer viewpoints on potential academic and behavioral misconduct violations. Board members serve on panels to hear alleged violations of the Institutional Rules, issue formal decisions, and in cases where a student is found to be responsible for a violation, recommend appropriate and proportionate sanctions.

   Membership Requirements

All board members must, at the time of their application and for the whole of their term, remain in good academic and behavioral standing with the university.

All board members must, at the time of their application and for the whole of their term:

  1. maintain enrollment in at least 6 hours of coursework at UT Austin for each semester, and
  2. maintain a cumulative GPA of 2.5 or higher.

Applicants who do not meet these requirements will not be considered for membership.

Membership also requires a commitment to serving a one-year appointment. Board members may be eligible for a second appointment at the end of their first term.

Upon selection, Board members will be required to meet the following expectations:

  1. Attend an onboarding training session,
  2. Complete annual FERPA training through UTLearn,
  3. Attend at least three additional trainings over the course of an academic year,
  4. Maintain regular availability to serve on hearing panels, and
  5. Respond promptly to emails from staff and the SCB Chair or Co-Chair.

If you will be unable to meet these expectations, please reconsider your application.

The SCB membership application process is divided into three parts:

  1. A written application,
