Student conduct, support and intervention

The Dean of Students Office is here to assist the Warrior community with any issues or concerns one may have as we all strive toward helping our students achieve their goals. Below are important reporting forms and web resources to assist you. Additionally, we have a faculty and staff resource page with helpful student behavioral response information and the Student Code of Conduct is a valuable resource. If you have any questions or need assistance, please contact us at 313-577-1010 or doso@wayne.edu.

  • Basic needs (e.g., food or housing insecurity)
  • Physical or emotional well-being

When referrals are received, the CARE Team will:

  • Review your referral and assign it to the appropriate CARE Team staff member
  • Reach out to student(s)
  • Keep in contact with referring party as needed
  • Meet with student(s) in person, via phone or virtually to discuss concerns
  • Identify the best course of action – including, but not limited to, referring a student to on- or off-campus partners, discussing appropriate options, etc.

The Student CARE Report should not be used to report a behavior that requires immediate intervention. For that, contact Wayne State Police at 313-577-2222.

The Student CARE Report should not be used to report classroom absence unless the absence presents a reason for concern.

Tuition and fees appeal

When the Registrar's Office denies a request for medical withdrawal or other exception to enrollment policy, students have a second level of appeal through the Tuition and Fee Appeals Board (TFAB).

  • The TFAB is the final arbiter of appeals for tuition and related fees
  • Each appeal is reviewed as an individual case, and cancellation of tuition and/or fees is granted only when circumstances warrant
  • The TFAB will consider only those appeals filed within one calendar year of the last day of the academic term in which the challenged fees were assessed
  • The TFAB cannot consider tuition and fee cancellation for courses with "earned" grades (e.g., grades based on poor performance rather than nonattendance due to illness or other extraordinary event)
