Dean Certifications & Behavioral Standing Letters

Students and alumni who are applying to other academic institutions or for employment which requires a disclosure of prior conduct information are required to complete a Dean Certification or Letter of Behavioral Standing. Because conduct records are considered educational records protected by FERPA, Student Conduct & Conflict Resolution (SCCR) does not share information regarding conduct records with anyone outside of FIU without a written consent. Thus, a release authorization from the student is mandatory. SCCR does not release prior conduct information over the phone as we are unable to verify the identity of the caller.

Timeline and Process

Please note that the SCCR Office will process a completed request within 5-10 business days of receipt. For questions, contact the office at (305) 348-3939.
