Student Conduct Forgiveness Process
The Student Conduct Record Forgiveness process allows students who have been found responsible for violations of the Student Code of Conduct to request a review of their case files in order to potentially have them removed from their record. Any additional violations committed after a student’s record has been reviewed and forgiven will reinstate the original record.
You are eligible to request the Student Conduct Record Forgiveness if all of the following apply to you:
- The incident(s) in question are minor and did not result in suspension or expulsion
- Further violations of similar incidents would not likely result in suspension or expulsion from the university
- You are a student with Senior status (90+ credits)
The Records Review Committee, appointed by the Vice President for Student and International Affairs, or designee, is comprised of faculty, staff, and students who will review and make a recommendation to the Vice President for Student and International Affairs, or designee.
The Records Review Committee’s decision will be based on the following factors:
- Severity of the violation,
- Effect of the violation on the University community,
- Sanctions applied,
- Completion of sanctions and
- Ethical development demonstrated by the student.
The decision is passed on to the Vice President for Student and International Affairs, or designee, who will provide a decision to the student, in writing, fifteen (15) class days of receipt of the request.
*There is no appeal process for a request for Student Conduct Record Forgiveness.

- The Student Conduct Office will verify the request for record forgiveness is eligible for forgiveness.
- Requests should include a written statement discussing what students have learned and how they have grown as a member of the UNF community, including information showing what the student has done to go above and beyond the basic requirements of their sanctions. Letters of recommendation and character references from members of the faculty, staff, or from employers will also be accepted in support of the request.
