All students are required to respond to the questions related to prior conduct on the University admissions application and are subject to a conduct clearance prior to admission. Florida Board of Governors’ Regulation 6.001(7) authorizes universities to refuse admission to applicants due to past misconduct. The Dean of Students or designee reviews all applications disclosing information regarding any academic or conduct violation. Applicants must submit to the Student Conduct Office information regarding academic or legal violation including but not limited to, criminal charges, convictions, criminal traffic violations, a conduct case at another institution, or pending FGCU Student Code of Conduct charges. Decisions are made in the best interest of the University community consistent with state and federal law. A misrepresentation in the response to the conduct history questions may result in a rescinding of admission.
