How does an honor code F impact a studentís grade?
Answer: If a student takes responsibility for a violation or is found responsible by a hearing board, the professor is allowed to determine the impact on the student's grade in his/her class. This may range from no grade impact at all, to failing an assignment or a test, to failing a particular unit of the course, to failing the entire course with an honor code F.
If a professor elects to give a student an honor code "F" for the course then Elon's standard "repeat rule" does not apply.

While a student found "responsible" may appeal an honor case, he/she is only appealing the sanctions given by the judicial board, not the grade assigned by the instructor.
An Honor Code "F" for a course may not be appealed through the University's Grade Grievance process.
