Students are expected to emulate the legal, moral, and ethical standards expected of professionals and display behavior that is consistent with these qualities. A Code of Responsibilities and Rights of the Students of Midwestern University is included in Appendix 1 of the MWU Student Handbook. This code clearly states the mode of behavior that is expected of students and covers both on-campus and off-campus activities. Students are expected to read and follow this code.

Unsatisfactory professional behavior, as defined in Appendices 2 and 4 of the MWU Student Handbook, is subject to disciplinary sanctions that may preclude a student's academic progress in their program of study. The Dean of Students investigates formal complaints concerning student misconduct and recommends disciplinary action to the CHS Dean. A student who is found to have engaged in improper conduct is subject to disciplinary action which includes, but is not limited to, disciplinary warning/probation, temporary suspension, or dismissal. Disciplinary warning and probation are not noted on the transcript but are kept in the student's disciplinary file. Suspension and dismissal as a result of disciplinary action are noted on the student's transcript. Disciplinary information may be shared with clinical sites that are affiliated with Midwestern University educational programs.
