Student Conduct Code and Honor Code (on and following 6/7/18)
This restriction does not impact your ability to represent the University on an intercollegiate athletic team, to hold an office in a registered student organization, or to participate in a study abroad program. Those restrictions are separately listed in the Code and must be specifically listed in your outcome letter to apply to you.
This loss of privilege does not impact your ability to represent the University as a Student athlete, as that determination will be made by the University Athletic Association. It also does not impact your ability to attend athletic functions; to hold leadership positions within Student Organizations as defined by Student Activities and Involvement or individual Student Organization by-laws/constitutions; to study abroad; to have unrestricted University facility use, parking privileges, or University computer usage; to participate in social/philanthropy activities, intramurals or block seating; to reserve space for meetings/events on-campus; or to receive future Institutional funding. Those losses of privilege are separately listed in the Code and must be specifically listed in your outcome letter to apply to you.
In order for your request to be considered you must submit a request here, and the following additional documentation:
- A copy of your Application for Graduation OR a signed letter from your academic advisor illustrating that you have applied to graduate.
- A typed signed statement explaining your request for a conduct record expungement
If you don’t provide enough information on your application about your previous conduct you will likely be sent a letter asking for more information regarding your previous conduct. Once additional documents and information are received it typically takes approximately one week to process in SCCR before it is sent back to admissions for a review in the regular admissions process if it is cleared.
If modified, sanctions can decrease or increase in severity or quantity.

Furthermore, we as a University are legally liable for the actions of our students and need to cultivate an environment of fairness and equality. By having potentially committed a violation of the Student Honor or Conduct Code, the student is undermining that fairness and it is the faculty’s responsibility to notify us of the potential violation, so that we can ensure the protection of everyone affiliated with the University of Florida.
If an incident is resolved after grade submission timelines, grade changes should be submitted by the faculty member using the Grade Change Paperwork; which should be requested from your College/Department’s University Registrar Approved Contact. If you are unsure who your College/Department Approved Contact is, please contact the Office of the University Registrar at 352-392-1374.
This time limit more explicitly complies with the Board of Governors Regulation 6.0105 (1(i)).
If a student does not agree with the proposed sanctions then these sanctions will still be taken into consideration by the hearing body during a formal conduct hearing.
