The decision to remove the grade of F* shall rest with the Honor Council and is contingent upon the successful completion of the Academic Integrity Development Program.
A student will remain on Honor Violation Probation until the F* is removed from the transcript. Additionally, the F* grade, or the F that remains when the “*” designation is removed, will not be eligible for any grade forgiveness or replacement action, and it must be considered in the calculation of a student’s Grade Point Ratio. An undergraduate student who receives an “F*” grade will not be allowed to remove the course from his/her degree plan until the successful completion the Academic Integrity Development Program. Graduate students are not allowed to remove an “F” from a degree program, regardless of whether it was imposed for cheating or academic failure. A student who wishes to re-take the course may do so concurrently with the Academic Integrity Development Program.
The student may file a written petition to the Honor Council to have the Honor Violation Probation removed. The decision to remove the Honor Violation Probation shall rest with the Honor Council and is contingent upon the successful completion of the Academic Integrity Development Program.
There is a one-year time limit to complete the Academic Integrity Development Program. The one-year limit shall be calculated from the time that the sanction was applied, and will be the longer of one year past the original sanction date or one year past the date that the appeal is exhausted or finalized. In unusual circumstances, the Honor Council is empowered to grant an extension of time.
