Standards of Academic Integrity
The complete "Standards of Academic Integrity" policy can be found HERE.
This policy was approved by the University Senate to take effect Fall 2013.
Please note the following:
- Carefully review the "Penalties and Procedures for Violations of Academic Integrity" in the policy.
- Instructors are REQUIRED to complete a Violation of Academic Integrity Report (VAIR) and submit it to the Vice Provost of Undergraduate Education (for undergraduate student violations) or the Vice Provost of Graduate Education (for graduate student violations).
- As per the policy, instructors cannot refer students directly to Community Standards for violations of the Standards of Academic Integrity policy. Referrals to Community Standards will be decided upon by the Office of the Vice Provost for Graduate or Undergraduate Education, respectively. The respective Vice Provost's office has discretion as to whether or not the student should be referred to Community Standards for a student's first reported violation. For a student's second reported violation, the respective Vice Provost's office is required to refer the student to Community Standards.
