Request by Student
If you are a current or former FSU student, and you want to request your certification of your student conduct record or to have our department send your certification to another entity, please use the below form to submit your request. Please be aware that you will need to provide your Student ID # or your EmplID #. This is a 10 digit number that can be found on your my.fsu portal.
Request by Outside Entity
By completing the form below, you may request information related to a current or former Florida State University student's disciplinary record. Your submission must include an Authorization of Release form signed by the student whose record you are requesting. The Department of Student Conduct and Community Standards maintains records relating to violations of the University’s Academic Honor Policy and Student Conduct Code; therefore, the information contained in the Dean Certification will be limited to the student’s disciplinary record.
The retention of student disciplinary records is governed by state and federal law, as well as University Regulations. Depending on the age of the records and the applicable record retention requirements, some records may not be available for inclusion in the Dean's Certification.
Please note our office will respond to a completed request within approximately 5 business days. Requests are processed in the order in which they are received.
Clearance of Disciplinary Record
Student conduct records may be cleared upon review and approval by the Dean of Students. When a record is cleared, the information it contains is no longer considered a disciplinary record. However, the University may be required to produce the record regardless of its status in order to comply with a subpoena or other information request consistent with federal or state law. The University is required by law and policy to retain student education records for specified periods of time, and for certain purposes. Clearing a record affects only information maintained by the Department of Student Conduct and Community Standards and University Housing, respectively.
Petitions for clearing a record may be made no sooner than one year after the date of the responding student’s last finding of responsibility from the student conduct process or one calendar year prior to their anticipated graduation, whichever is later. The request must be made in writing to the Dean of Students, and will not be granted for conduct that resulted in suspension or expulsion from the University. A petition may also be denied for any records related to conduct that posed a threat to a member of the University community or serious damage to University property.
When reviewing a request for clearance of a disciplinary record the Dean of Students will take into account the student's conduct record, their submitted educational directives, and the case notes made by administrators assigned to the case(s).
