Academic Integrity Policy
The Importance of Academic Integrity & Honesty
At Syracuse University, academic integrity is expected of every community member in all endeavors. Academic integrity includes a commitment to the values of honesty, trustworthiness, fairness, and respect.
These values are essential to the overall success of an academic society. In addition, each member of the University community has a right to expect adherence to academic integrity from all other community members.
“Syracuse University students shall exhibit honesty in all academic endeavors. Cheating in any form is not tolerated, nor is assisting another person to cheat. The submission of any work by a student is taken as a guarantee that the thoughts and expressions in it are the student’s own, except when properly credited to another. Violations of this principle include the following: giving or receiving aid in an exam or where otherwise prohibited; fraud; plagiarism; the falsification or forgery of any record; or any other deceptive act in connection with academic work. Plagiarism is the representation of another’s words, ideas, programs, formulae, opinions, or other products of work as one’s own either overtly or by failing to attribute them to their true source.” (Section 1.0, University Rules and Regulations.)
