Policies

Academic Honesty

Academic honesty is a fundamental value that must be shared and upheld by all members of the University of Rochester community. Graduate students in Arts, Sciences and Engineering have the responsibility to understand and abide by the University and AS&E policies, and suspected infractions of these policies will be treated with the utmost seriousness. A student remains responsible for the academic honesty of work submitted to the University as part of the requirements for the completion of a degree (or any other coursework taken at the University) even after the work is accepted, the degree is granted, or the student is no longer matriculated at the University of Rochester.  Ignorance of these standards is not considered a valid excuse or defense.
