Academic IntegrityAll USF students are expected to demonstrate the highest level of honesty and responsibility.
Academic integrity is grounded in certain fundamental values, which include honesty, respect and fairness. Broadly defined, it is the completion of all academic endeavors and claims of scholarly knowledge as representative of one's own efforts. Issues related to academic integrity include plagiarism, cheating on examinations, reusing papers and submitting your own work.
All USF students are expected to demonstrate the highest level of honesty and responsibility. Any form of dishonesty destroys the trust between faculty and student, is unfair to other students within the program and contradicts the reason for entering the program. Ignorance of the rules is not an excuse.
