What happens when I see the FCD?

The FCD, or Faculty Committee on Discipline, is made up of several Engineering Faculty members, representing a range of departments. After a case is heard by the Honor Council, the case is then heard by the FCD. Each FCD hearing will usually consists of 3 FCD members, the Honor Council member who was assigned to investigate the case and the Honor Council Administrator. The accused student(s) are asked to come in and tell their side of the story, and answer questions. If you do not show for your scheduled hearing, the case can be heard without you.  The FCD will then make the final and binding decision.

Students and instructors will be notified via email of the decision of the FCD.  NOTE: Only instructors have the access and authority to change grades.  (If you are having difficulty getting in touch with your instructor, please contact the Honor Council Administrator at honorcouncil-admin@umich.edu)

The accused student(s) will have the option to appeal the case to the Executive Committee of the College.
