Policies and Regulations

FSU LEAP Expectations and Regulations

FSU LEAP students are FSU Broncos, and as such, they are expected to attend all required activities and to comply with all FSU Policies, Rules, and Regulations. Students who do not comply will be dismissed from the program.

The most important policy to be aware of is the FSU Disruptive Behavior policy. Highlights are listed below.  In addition, all LEAP students will be residing on FSU's campus and must abide by Residence Life regulations including keeping curfew, passing room inspection, and abiding by visitation and check-out policy.

Disruptive behavior is considered any behavior that interferes with instruction and learning. Examples include but are not limited to the following:

  1. Failure to respect the rights of other students to express their viewpoints by behaviors such as repeatedly interrupting them, using profanity and/or disrespectful names or labels for others, ridiculing others' viewpoints, and similar behaviors;
  2. Excessive talking while the faculty member or other students are presenting information or expressing their viewpoints;
  3. Use of cell phones and/or other electronic devices in violation of the class syllabus;
  4. Overt inattentiveness (sleeping, reading non-class material, etc.);
  5. Eating in class;
  6. Threats or statements that jeopardize the safety of the student and/or others;
  7. Failure to follow reasonable requests of faculty members;
  8. Entering class late and/or leaving class early on a regular basis.   

Student Complaints

In addition to having high standards for you as an FSU LEAP Scholar, we maintain high standards for ourselves as your instructors, mentors, tutors, advisors, and Residence Life personnel. If you have any problems during the program, speak to Ms. Wade, Ms. Murrell, or anyone else involved directly.  If the issue is not immediately resolved, please fill out the Student Complaint Form and give it to Ms. Wade for follow-up.
