As a student at NAU, appropriate conduct and integrity are expected. In some instances of student misconduct, the university will issue a warning or will place the student on disciplinary probation, suspension, or will dismiss the student from the university. Procedural fair play and due process will be provided in every instance. Proper safeguards for the welfare, safety, and educational opportunity will be provided for all students.

Institutional obligations include, but are not limited to, upholding the law and maintenance of regulations regarding academic honesty and restricting prejudicial behavior, physical abuse or harassment, impropriety of personal behavior, or illicit use of drugs or intoxicants, especially as these relate to institutional and educational goals. Respect and tolerance are keywords in the institutional expectations of students in their interaction with each other and with other members of the university community.  Legal violations may be reported to police authorities.
