Academic Dishonesty Policy

Academic Dishonesty Policy

The University Honors Program fosters student success by building a community supportive of especially high aspirations and goals and encouraging intellectual curiosity and academic excellence.  We seek to foster vital, informed, successful, and engaged citizens.  Given our goals, even a single act of academic dishonesty, of any kind, will not be tolerated.  Any student found to have committed an act of academic dishonesty, as defined in UNIREG 6-802 (quoted below), will be dropped from the program. 

Academic dishonesty is “an act attempted or performed which misrepresents one’s involvement in an academic task in any way, or permits another student to misrepresent the latter’s involvement in an academic task by assisting in the misrepresentation.  Academic dishonesty includes:

  • Representing as one’s own work material (including ideas and arguments as well as actual words) copied or borrowed from any source, written or otherwise, public or private, without proper citation.
  • Using a ghostwriter, commercial or otherwise, for any type of assignment.
  • Submitting substantially the same work for more than one class without the explicit permission of all instructors.
  • Doing a class assignment for someone else, or allowing someone else to copy one’s assignment.
  • Using notes or prepared information in an examination, unless authorized by the instructor.
  • Taking an examination for someone else, or allowing someone else to take an examination for you.
  • Copying from, or assisting another student during an examination.
  • Stealing, or otherwise improperly obtaining, copies of an examination before or after its administration.
  • Submitting substantially the same work as someone else unless authorized by the instructor.”

Please note that the work you submit is the work of record.  Make certain that the file you email, or the paper you turn in, is the correct one.
