Our office will open a new case and begin an investigation when we receive a complaint that alleges an Ohio State student possibly violated the Code of Student Conduct. Complaints come in different forms from a variety of sources:
- The Ohio State Police Division and the Columbus Division of Police often send reports to our office when they encounter students whose conduct may have violated the law, the Code or both.
- Other university offices frequently provide information to our office that will prompt an investigation. We routinely receive complaints from Residence Life, Student Activities, Sorority and Fraternity Life, as well as academic units.
- Individuals can submit complaints to our office in-person or through an online form.
