What is Academic Integrity?
The U of S strives to create a campus culture that values and celebrates academic honesty. Yet, inevitably every instructor, while grading student work, comes across an assignment or exam that appears to fall short of the expectations required of academic integrity at the university level. Before addressing such cases it is important you familiarize yourself with the student academic dishonesty rules that govern the U of S. The following is an excerpt from the Regulations on Student Academic Misconduct. To learn more about U of S policy, visit the Office of the University Secretary.
