File a Report
We encourage our community of Knights to reach out for support and report or refer a student in distress, behavioral misconduct, issues of academic misconduct, or other behavior that may negatively impact the campus community and beyond. If you have questions or concerns about which may be the appropriate reporting option, do not hesitate to contact Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities at 407-823-6960 or at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more.
*Please remember: These reporting forms are only monitored during normal business hours Mon-Fri, 8am-5pm. If you need immediate assistance after business hours, please call 911 or the UCFPD non-emergency line (407)-823-5555 or the Counseling and Psychological Services 24/7 Crisis Hotline at 407-823-2811.
The Student of Concern Process allows students, staff, faculty, and UCF community members to report concerning behavior exhibited by a student. If you are aware that a student is in distress, is experiencing challenges or difficulties that concern you, please report the concern using the Student of Concern Form. The entire UCF community will benefit. It is our goal to intervene before the student reaches a crisis level.
When referral forms are received, Student Care Services will:
- Review your referral form and assign it to the appropriate Student Care Services staff member.
- Reach out to students or referring party as needed via phone or email.
- Meet with students in-person, via phone or Zoom to discuss concerns as needed to connect them to on campus and/or off campus resources.
- Identify the next best course of action – including, but not limited to referring a student to on-campus or off-campus partners, discussing appropriate options, developing an action plan for personal and academic success, etc.
Student Conduct and Academic Integrity handles complaints against University of Central Florida students and student groups, but not faculty or staff. The complaint must indicate a possible violation of one or more of the Rules of Conduct or Organizational Rules of Conduct located in the Golden Rule Student Handbook.
When an instructor becomes aware of an alleged violation of student academic behavior standards and before any academic action is taken, the instructor must decide if the behavior warrants formal documentation through the Alleged Academic Misconduct Report (AAMR) Form by identifying the alleged misconduct violations and proposing course sanctions. Academic misconduct includes but is not limited to cheating, plagiarism, assisting another in cheating or plagiarism, and commercial use of academic materials.
Title IX protects people from discrimination based on sex in education programs or activities that receive federal financial assistance. Sex-based discrimination can include sexual assault, relationship abuse, stalking, and sexual harassment, which the Golden Rule Student Handbook categorizes as sexual misconduct and/or interpersonal violence. All disclosures of these types of incidents are taken seriously.
Report an Incident to the UCF Police Department
UCF Police Department patrols and operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Contact the UCFPD anytime at (407) 823-5555. In an emergency, dial 911.

To ensure the UCF Creed is maintained to the highest degree, UCF does not condone hazing in any form. Hazing is an abuse of power and relationships, and its purpose is to demean others. Hazing has no place at the University of Central Florida. Any acts of hazing by any UCF student or student group/club/organization/sports/fraternity/sorority/athletic team will not be tolerated.
If you feel you, or someone you know has been hazed, you can report hazing by one of the three (3) methods below:
