Academic Integrity

Academic Integrity


All members of the University of Arizona community have a responsibility to uphold and maintain an honest academic environment by following the UA Code of Academic Integrity.  As a community of scholars, integrity should guide conduct and decisions related to academic work and all credit bearing classes, including traditional, non-traditional, and online courses.

Student Responsibilities

Students are responsible for understanding and following the UA Code of Academic Integrity.  Students engaging in academic dishonesty diminish their education and bring discredit to the academic community and the campus. Students should avoid situations likely to compromise academic integrity.

Faculty Responsibilities

Faculty members and instructors should foster an environment of honesty in their classes and notify students of their course policies related to academic integrity.  Faculty and instructors should make reasonable efforts to avoid situations conducive to infractions of the UA Code of Academic Integrity.
