Policy Agreement Between Honor & Integrity System & Registrar's Office
If a K-State faculty member wishes to assign an XF for a course due to a student's alleged Honor Pledge violation, the faculty member makes the request of the Honor & Integrity System Director, firstname.lastname@example.org, and provides appropriate documentation (doc) for Honor & Integrity System files.
If the student does not contest the allegation, the Director notifies the Registrar to record an XF on the student's academic record. The F will remain permanently on the record; the X (which indicates a violation of the Honor Pledge) can only be removed by successfully passing the Development and Integrity Course, offered in three sections each semester.
Should a student decide to contest the allegation, the Director follows the Honor and Integrity System Investigation and Adjudication Procedures and appoints the necessary Honor Council members to determine if an Honor Pledge violation has occurred.
If the Honor Council members decide to uphold the allegation, the Director notifies the Registrar to assign an XF to the student's academic record. If the members decide a violation of the Honor Pledge did not occur, the Director notifies the Registrar to remove the academic hold from the student's academic record.
