Graduate Honor System Review Process
Cases referred to the Graduate Honor System may be resolved through facilitated discussion or through panel review, depending on case eligibility and/or by choice of the individuals involved:
- Facilitated discussion is quick-resolution option for cases that involve low-level first-time potential violations by students, when both student(s) and faculty referrer agree to review the facts of the case with the aid of a trained GHS facilitator. A record of the facilitated discussion is submitted to the GHS by the facilitator after all participants have signed the form.
- Panel review offers a two-step process of evidence gathering and review by a panel of seven trained GHS volunteers, with the participation of the referrer and the referred.
The flow chart below shows how cases progress through the system.
