Academic Dishonesty

Upholding academic honesty is key to maintaining one’s reputation professionally and succeeding in graduate school. Reusing a paper that you wrote for another class, copying a paragraph from an article and changing every other word, or collaborating on a solo take­home exam are all examples of academic integrity gone wrong.

Examples of dishonest conduct include, but are not limited to:

  • Cheating including giving and receiving information in examinations.
  • Falsification of data, results or sources.
  • Collusion, such as working with another person when independent work is assigned.
  • Plagiarism.
  • Submitting the same paper or report for assignments in more than one course without permission (self-plagiarism).
