Reporting Violations of the Student Code of Conduct, Odd, Concerning, or Threatening Behavior
In an emergency your first call should be to 911 or the STC Security Department at 956-872-4444
Parties submitting a report may submit an anonymous report using the Student Conduct Incident Report Form – SCIRF (For Complaints Against Students). However, due to the nature of many of the reports, federal regulations under Title IX, the Clery Act, Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), and the Campus Sexual Violence Elimination Act (SaVE) parties are encouraged to provide their contact information to ensure an appropriate response to their concerns and to ensure that all necessary steps can be taken to insure the health and safety of all members of the South Texas College community. This allows the College to provide you with information about the outcome of your report and to provide victims assistance information when appropriate.

The threat assessment may be used in determining risk factors, as well as a means of developing an overall treatment plan for the individual.
Note: Threat Assessment is never used in isolation when determining a student’s ability to remain on campus. The Office of Student Conduct uses all available information, and endeavors to make the most informed and fair decisions when making a determination to remove an individual from or allow an individual to remain on campus.
