ECU Student Code of Conduct

As the new academic year begins, I encourage you to take advantage of the opportunities that are offered both in and out of the classroom and develop as many relationships as possible.  Set high standards for yourself, make good choices, and take time to reflect on your experiences.  If you need assistance, ask for help.  In support of your well-being, please review the Student Code of Conduct: A Guide to Student Rights and Responsibilities. This publication provides valuable information pertaining to the offices and services available to you.  

At ECU you will find the Tiger family is student centered and focused on student success.  As the Dean of Students, I am here to advocate for you and to promote a learning environment in which students, faculty, staff, and the community interact to educate students for life in a rapidly changing and culturally diverse society.  Please do not hesitate to contact me at

Best wishes and remember “Once a Tiger, Always a Tiger!!”


Dr. Boomer W. Appleman

Dean of Students

The online version of the ECU Student Code of Conduct is maintained on this website to enhance student, faculty, staff, and community access to information. This is a service that is continually under development. The reader should be aware that, while we try to keep the ECU Student Code of Conduct timely and accurate, there will be a delay between University approval of amendments and revisions and their posting on this website.

Changes go into effect when they are approved, unless otherwise stated. The official source of information is the East Central University Student Code of Conduct maintained at the Office of Student Development, Administration Building, Room 103, (580) 559-5208. In the event of any conflict between this online version and the official version, the official version controls. Persons using the online version are encouraged to confirm the current status of specific information.
