The No Report Form is used to establish a non-punitive grade replacement while a Faculty Dispositions of Scholastic Dishonesty is pending. No Report Forms are used most often when the incident occurs near final grade time. Faculty are responsible for notifying their Academic Dean’s office when grades are submitted, noting that pending the outcome of a scholastic dishonesty case, an “NR” should be posted for the student’s grade. The Academic Dean’s office prepares a memo, which is then forwarded with the grades to the register’s office, who records the NR. (NR stands for “No Report”). Faculty members are asked to use the No Report Form any time final grades will be reported during the fourteen (14) day appeal window. If the student does not exercise his/her right to appeal, grades may be posted on the fifteenth (15th) day. Faculty members will receive a follow up letter from Student Conduct and Community Standards providing additional instructions. PDF Icon The No Report Form
