Academic Dishonesty

In promoting a high standard of academic integrity, the University broadly defines academic dishonesty—basically, all conduct that violates this standard, including any act designed to give an unfair or undeserved academic advantage, such as:

  • Cheating
  • Plagiarism
  • Unauthorized Collaboration/Collusion
  • Falsifying Academic Records
  • Misrepresenting Facts
  • Any other acts (or attempted acts) that violate the basic standard of academic integrity.

Student Judicial Services in the Office of the Dean of Students is responsible for investigating alleged violations and implementing the discipline process.
