Academic Integrity

Academic Integrity

It is imperative that all students adhere to UT's honor code. You may begin here to begin familiarizing yourself with it. There is a zero-tolerance policy on plagiarism and cheating. Please read this PDF document on the subject of plagiarism.

Chapter 11 of the Institutional Rules on Student Services and Activities, Section 11-402 states the following:

"‘Academic dishonesty’ or ‘scholastic dishonesty’ includes, but is not limited to, cheating, plagiarism, collusion, falsifying academic records, misrepresenting facts, and any act designed to give unfair academic advantage to the student (such as, but not limited to, submission of essentially the same written assignment for two classes without the prior permission of the instructor), or the attempt to commit such an act."

The examples of academic dishonesty listed above are defined at length in chapter 11 of the Institutional Rules. Students are expected to review this section of the document carefully, as ignorance will not be accepted as a defense against accusations.

Please note that, in language courses, having a native speaker revise work done in the target language without the instructor’s permission, and before submission of the assignment, is considered an act of collusion.
