Student Conduct Board


The Student Conduct Board consists of UCF faculty, staff, and students. Members of the Student Conduct Board serve as hearing officers for formal hearings, which allows students the right to be heard by other UCF community members in cases where they have been charged with violations of the Rules of Conduct.

Serving on the Student Conduct Board is challenging and satisfying whether you are student, faculty or staff member. Members’ critical thinking and decision-making skills are often put to the test and improve greatly during their service.

Email us at stconductboard@ucf.edu for additional information.

All faculty, staff, and students at UCF are encouraged to apply to be a member of the Student Conduct Board. Applications for new members are open during the spring term for service during the upcoming academic year.

To become a member, you should first submit an online application.* SCAI will review your application and contact you to schedule an interview, should you meet the minimum requirements. If selected to serve on the Student Conduct Board, SCAI will formally invite you to become a member for the upcoming academic year. Prior to serving in a student conduct hearing, you will be required to complete the full training and shadow a minimum of one hearing.

If you are interested in becoming a member and have questions, please email stconductboard@ucf.edu to speak with a staff member.
