As a professional school, this dress code is intended to contribute to the overall professional development and appearance of the students.

SBI Forum Dress Code
*With respect to fitting of clothes, “in all things consider moderation!”
SBI students are expected to dress in “corporate” attire during certain components of Professional Development. These are the guidelines for FORUM attendance ONLY:
A student will be permitted one unexcused absence per credit hour of the course he or she is attending. A student exceeding the number of unexcused absences may be dropped from the course and assigned the grade of "F." Students may be readmitted to the class with the dean's and the instructor's permission. Students are responsible for all assignments, quizzes and examinations at the time they are due and may not use their absence from class as a plea for extensions of time to complete assignments or for permission to take make up examinations or quizzes. (FAMU Electronic Catalog)
Excused absences are issued to students in order to prevent academic repercussions from a legitimate life event. It is not designed to accommodate students who have not acted
responsibly. Per University policy, students can be excused for the following reasons (a) illnesses, (b) participation in activities, programs, and business as a University
representative, and (c) circumstances or emergencies that are deemed beyond the student's control. The following link details the procedure for requesting an excused absence. Proper documentation must accompany this request.
"An academic honesty violation shall include a student who gives or takes information or material and wrongly uses it to aid himself/herself or another student in academic endeavors. It shall further include receiving unauthorized written or oral information from a fellow student. Additionally, it shall include stealing, buying, selling or referring to a copy of an examination before it is administered." (p. 69 Fang Student Handbook)
"A student who assists in any of the academic honesty violations shall be considered equally responsible as the student who accepts such assistance." (p. 70 Fang Student Handbook)
Cheating: We recommend that faculty have discretion to give cheating students an "F" on the assignment, a course grade of "F" or faculty can pursue school/university suspension, dismissal or expulsion against the cheating student(s).

Plagiarism may be specifically defined for the purposes of any course by the instructor involved. Unless otherwise defined, plagiarism shall include failure to use quotation marks or other conventional markings around material quoted from any source. Plagiarism shall also include paraphrasing a specific passage from a specific source without indicating accurately what the source is. Plagiarism shall further include letting another person composes or rewrite a written assignment." (p. 69 Fang Student Handbook)

Automated Student Feedback and Complaint System
Each student within the Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University (FAMU) School of Business and Industry (SBI) has the opportunity to share their feedback and voice their concerns to the Dean of the School via the Dean’s Office automated application system. The application is only accessible from the “sign-in laptop” available in the lobby of the Dean’s Office.
Upon entering the Dean’s office, the “sign-in laptop” is available with the application running. The student is greeted with a prompt to click the start button to log a concern or provide feedback. The student information sheet appears where the student is asked to enter data in three sections: contact information, area of concern, and an expected solution.
The contact data requested are: name, student ID, FAMU email address (enforced using data validation) and telephone number. Optionally, students can identify any office or individual who referred them to the Dean’s Office. The options available for the students to identify an area of concern are: Registration, Scholarship or Graduate Assistantship, Override, Faculty Grievance or Grade Change, and other. If the student selects Faculty Grievance or Grade Change, the student is required to enter the Faculty Name, Course Name, Code and Section, and also select checkboxes to identify if they have visited the Faculty, Department Chair, and/or the Assistant Dean (The Grievance Procedure with the Application is available at the web link below.). If Other is selected, a description of the concern is required. After selecting an area or combination of areas of concerns, the student is required to describe briefly the concern and state how they would like the situation to be resolved. The student then submits the form, which closes out the system and saves the complaint in the Dean’s Office password protected folder. The Dean’s Assistant accesses and triages the complaints by routing them to the appropriate person and scheduling appointments so that the issues/complaints can be resolved.
Grade changes can be made for the following reasons: (a) when it is determined that a grade was recorded in error, (b) when removing “I” grades and (c) as a result of a student’s successful appeal of a grade. Academic units wishing to request grade changes must submit a “Grade Change and Academic Record Update Form” to the Registrar’s Office for approval and processing. The form must contain the signature of the respective academic Dean in order to be processed.
