Academic Integrity

Academic Integrity is expected and required.

“Syracuse University’s Academic Integrity Policy reflects the high value that we, as a university community, place on honesty in academic work. The policy defines our expectations for academic honesty and holds students accountable for the integrity of all work they submit. Students should understand that it is their responsibility to learn about course-specific expectations, as well as about university-wide academic integrity expectations. … Under the policy, students found in violation are subject to grade sanctions determined by the course instructor and non-grade sanctions determined by the School or College where the course is offered as described in the Violation and Sanction Classification Rubric. SU students are required to read an online summary of the University’s academic integrity expectations and provide an electronic signature agreeing to abide by them twice a year during pre-term check-in on MySlice.

“The Violation and Sanction Classification Rubric establishes recommended guidelines for the determination of grade penalties by faculty and instructors, while also giving them discretion to select the grade penalty they believe most suitable, including course failure, regardless of violation level. Any established violation in this course may result in course failure regardless of violation level.” (  )

Academic integrity is expected and required.  You must do all of your Homeworks, Quizzes, and Exams independently.  All materials submitted must represent your independent work.  If it is determined that you have violated this standard of academic honesty you can receive an F in the course.  On Quizzes and Exams all work should be totally independent.  On Homeworks you are encouraged to work together up to the point at which you commit your thoughts to paper.  Do your synthesis independently.  Do not give others your notes for preparation of Homeworks. This can lead to answers that are too similar with adverse consequences.
