Academic Integrity

Academic integrity is expected of every East Carolina University student. Academically violating the Honor Code consists of the following:

  • Cheating: The giving or receiving of any unauthorized aid or assistance or the giving or receiving of unfair advantage on any form of academic work.
  • Plagiarism: Copying the language, structure, ideas, and/or thoughts of another and adopting those as one's original work.
  • Falsification: A statement of untruth, either verbal or written, regarding any circumstances relating to academic work.
  • Attempting any act which if completed would constitute an academic integrity violation as defined above.

Procedures governing academic integrity violations are described in the student handbook.

No student may drop the involved course or withdraw from school prior to resolving an academic integrity charge.
