The Conduct Advising Office is now available both in-person (Student Union 305F) and remotely through the Intake Form.
If you receive a code of conduct charge against you, you are not alone. We're here to help.
The Conduct Advisors are a team of students who advocate on behalf of other students involved in the conduct process. We are a subsidiary of the SGA that works to promote shared governance between students and the administration while protecting students' rights. Conduct Advisors are trained to understand the Code of Student Conduct, Residential Life policies, and hearing board procedures.
We will attend administrative meetings, hearings and sanction review hearings with students. All of our services are completely free. While we unable to speak anyone's behalf, we can help prepare you for, and advise you throughout the meeting to ensure your rights are being protected.
We are also a support system that can refer you to additional resources.
After filling out an intake form we will get in touch about meeting with you to explain the conduct process, review any documents relating to your case, explain possible options, and help you come to a decision that works for you. We also help prepare appeals and revise any statements you may want to submit. Feel free to email the office if you have questions or are unsure about how best to proceed.
Ideally, you should come to the SGA office, email us or submit an intake form immediately after you receive your notice of charge so you can set up your appointment.
However, you can contact us anytime you need assistance with the conduct process. It doesn't matter if you just received your charge, are seeking to file charges, or are involved with an ongoing case.
We are here for you.

If you seek help for someone under the influence of alcohol or other drugs who needs medical attention, neither you nor that person will be charged with a UMass Code of Student Conduct violation.
