Over 75% of the cases of academic misconduct processed by the Aggie Honor System Office were handled autonomously by faculty. Autonomous means that the faculty met with the student, provided them the evidence of why they feel there is a violation, allowed the student to state their side, and then filed a report electronically with the Aggie Honor System Office. In most cases a student will acknowledge the violation and accept the sanction at the time of filing. No further action is necessary. The report takes approximately 5-10 minutes to complete. The student does have the opportunity to appeal in some situations. Also, if the student is not available for the meeting, the faculty member may still handle the case autonomously and the Aggie Honor System Office will meet with the student to go over the information and the student’s options.
