Students are expected to adhere to the University Student Conduct Code as well as to established University policies and procedures, including all expectations set forth in course syllabi. Upon entrance into the WashU community, all students will receive a comprehensive introduction to academic integrity.  This orientation will focus on the importance of academic integrity for a community of scholars as well as practical engagement with activities to understand what types of actions constitute an act of academic misconduct. In instances of uncertainty, it is the student’s responsibility to seek additional guidance from their instructors on specific definitions and examples of academic dishonesty in their respective courses.  As part of the commitment to academic honesty, students will be given opportunities to engage with ongoing educational efforts surrounding this topic throughout their enrollment at WashU.
