Report an Incident

Reporting an incident of possible student misconduct.

To report any incident that you believe may be a violation of the Student Code of Conduct, please complete and submit the online Incident Report Form.

You may report an incident for any student at Penn State. The Office of Student Conduct will determine student status when evaluating the report. The Office of Student Conduct will also connect with Student Conduct Designees at the Commonwealth Campuses if necessary for further evaluation and potential management of the case.

When reporting an incident, the behavior addressed will be evaluated through a formal or informal conduct process. Each student has rights within the conduct process and to alternatives to a formal conduct process (e.g. mediation services, etc.).

When a report is received, the Office of Student Conduct will review the report and may be in touch with the complainant to describe next steps and/or to clarify or gather more information. Following that, OSC will schedule a time to meet with the respondent. The formal or informal conduct process begins at that point.

If this is an emergency, please contact University Police at 814-863-1111 or call 911.
