University Policies Academic Integrity: Academic honesty and integrity are essential to the existence and growth of an academic community. Without maintenance of high standards of honesty, members of the instructional faculty are defrauded, students are unfairly treated, and society itself is poorly served. Maintaining the academic standards of honesty and integrity is ultimately
2 the formal responsibility of the instructional faculty; and this responsibility is shared by all members of the academic community. Students have the responsibility to know and observe the requirements of The UNC Charlotte Code of Student Academic Integrity which may be found on the web at This code forbids cheating, fabrication, or falsification of information, multiple submission academic work, plagiarism, abuse of academic material, and complicity in academic dishonesty. Any special requirements or permission regarding academic integrity in this course will be stated by the instructor, and are binding on the students. Academic work is free from academic dishonesty of any type; and grades in this course therefore should be and will be adversely affected by academic dishonesty. The normal penalty for the first offense is zero credit on the work involving dishonesty and further substantial reduction of the course grade. In almost all cases the course grade is reduced to an F. Copies of the code can be obtained from the Dean of Students Office. Standards of academic integrity will be enforced in this course. Students are expected to report cases of academic dishonesty to the course s instructor.
