Graduate Honor System
Academic integrity is maintained through an honor system. The Graduate Honor System is governed by policies established by the University Graduate Council. It draws upon the traditions of integrity and academic freedom - a freedom within the academic community which is based on a trust between students and faculty. The Honor System imposes upon each student the responsibility for his or her own honest behavior and assumes that each student will report any violations of the Honor Code.
The Graduate Honor System is administered by an honor committee composed of five members of the graduate faculty who are responsible for decisions regarding alleged violations. The committee’s decisions are binding on the student involved but may be appealed to the chief academic officer of the University.
