Each student must act with honesty and integrity, and they must respect the rights of others in carrying out all academic assignments (See ASU’s Student Academic Integrity Policy).
Please see ASU’s Student Academic Integrity Policy for further information.
Not all inappropriate behavior in the academic setting is an Academic Integrity Policy violation.
Student Code of Conduct
Violations of the ASU Student Code of Conduct, other than the provision concerning academic dishonesty, are more generally considered inappropriate behavior. The Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities reviews and sanctions these matters. If a student violates both the academic integrity provision and additional provisions of the Student Code of Conduct, both the college and the Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities will review the matter. Each independently makes determinations concerning violations and appropriate sanctions.
For students involved in research, there can be overlapping areas between academic integrity violations and policies concerning research misconduct.
Research misconduct is defined as, “Fabrication, falsification, plagiarism and other practices that seriously deviate from those that are commonly accepted within the academic community for proposing, conducting or reporting research. Instances of honest error and honest differences in interpretations or judgments of data are not considered misconduct.” (ASU RSP 004: Definitions)
At ASU, the Office of the Knowledge Enterprise Development reviews allegations of research misconduct in research. A student who violates ASU’s Misconduct in Research Policy and the Student Academic Integrity Policy may be reviewed by both the college and the Office of the Knowledge Enterprise Development with each independently making determinations concerning violations and appropriate sanctions.
Academic integrity is a fundamental value at ASU and violations can cause real harm to individuals and to our institution.
Academic integrity means that all of the work that you submit for ASU courses is your own and that your work clearly acknowledges any intellectual contributions and insights received from others. To complete assignments with integrity you must know:
Students have the responsibility to understand and uphold the highest standards of academic integrity. If students fail to do so, faculty members and the dean's office have the right to report and sanction violators accordingly.
When accused and sanctioned for an academic integrity violation, the student has the following rights:
Note: Unless a student successfully appeals a sanction for an Academic Integrity Policy violation, the dean's office will maintain a record of the incident and the sanction(s). In all cases, the dean's office retains the right to impose or recommend sanctions in addition to those requested by a faculty member (if the seriousness of the current situation or past violations warrant).
