By joining the USF community, you chose to become a member of a community that values, respects and adheres to University policies, procedures and expectations while upholding the highest standards of honesty and integrity in and out of the classroom.

Expectation of Honesty

If a student has violated a policy, one of the most important and positive decisions s/he can make afterwards is to take responsibility for her or his actions and to be honest about the incident.  Becoming a mature adult requires that one take ownership of personal actions. Regardless of the original violation, if a student is found to be dishonest in the conduct process, s/he will be subject to further disciplinary action.

Jurisdiction

Misconduct that occurs on or off campus by USF students may be addressed through the student conduct process.
