Academic Honor Policy remains fully operational

This message to all faculty and staff has been approved by Dr. Janet Kistner, Vice President for Faculty Development and Advancement.

In these unprecedented and stressful times, everyone is adjusting to a “new normal” in which change seems the only constant. Yet one thing that has not changed is FSU’s commitment to academic integrity. The Academic Honor Policy, with some temporary flexibility built in for Spring 2020 cases, is fully operational.

Please continue to send any inquiries, Step 1 Agreements, and Step 2 Hearing Referrals to Ms. Ann DelRossi ( in the Office of Faculty Development and Advancement. To indicate students’ agreement on Step 1 forms, simply forward the student’s email agreeing to the violation and the sanction to Ann with the Step 1 attached.
