Academic Dishonesty

Academic dishonesty in any form is a serious offense that cannot be tolerated in an academic community. Dishonesty—including cheating, plagiarisms, deception of effort, and/or unauthorized assistance—may result in a failing grade in a course and/or suspension or dismissal from the university.

Each graduate program or college must adopt and publish procedures for investigating charges of academic dishonesty. These procedures must take into account due process and rules of evidence, and they must conform to the university’s Student Code of Conduct.
