Honor System Procedures

Honor System Procedures

Any person who suspects a student may have violated the Honor Code may report the suspected violation to the Office of Student Conduct, which will forward the report to the appropriate Student Attorney General for review.

Faculty who suspect academic or non-academic misconduct must file a report and may inform the student of their intention to file a report. Additionally, the faculty may elect to meet with the student prior to filing the report to provide the student the opportunity to give additional perspective on the matter, assuming the student agrees to meet, and has been advised of his or her rights, including the right to not make any statements which would be self-incriminating.

Students should report suspected Honor Code of any kind directly to Office of Student Conduct either in person at SASB North, Suite 2105, by email to jpa@unc.edu, or by phone at 919.962.0805.

Each case is reviewed and adjudicated individually,  but most cases follow a four-part process: the Investigation, the Hearing, the Post Hearing, and the Appeal Option.
