Advisors for Student Code of Conduct
The accused student, complainant(s), and/or student witnesses may have an advisor accompany him or her to any scheduled conduct complaint proceeding. The advisor may be any individual of the student’s choosing who is allowed to be present on the FSU campus, except another student with a pending conduct complaint in a potentially related matter. The advisor‘s role with regard to hearings is strictly limited to directly advising and/or accompanying the student advisee or complainant to the hearing. An advisor’s presence is contingent upon following this procedure. Advisors may not: (a) address any person involved in the hearing except for the student they are advising, or (b) disclose any student record information obtained through the student conduct process except as permitted by law. Advisors who do not comply with these requirements may be dismissed by the presiding administrator, required to immediately leave, and will not be allowed to participate in future proceedings unless authorized by the Dean of Students. In the event an advisor is dismissed from a scheduled proceeding, the proceeding will continue as scheduled. The student may request to have a different advisor, if available, for the duration of the hearing as well as for any additionally scheduled proceedings.
