  • Frequently Asked Questions
  • Academic Honesty Syllabus Statement

    Academic honesty violations have risen greatly since March 2020 as many students struggled with the new circumstances of remote learning. On August 6, a focused conversation about academic honesty in a remote/hybrid environment was convened by CLT.

    You are invited to consult the video of that session which includes recommendations for preventing academic misconduct, in addition to information about how to report a violation.

    As you finalize your fall syllabi, I encourage you to consider adding the following statement, which addresses some recent concerns that have come to the attention of the Harpur Academic Honesty Committee. Please feel free to revise it to fit your needs.

    The shift to remote and hybrid teaching due to the COVID-19 pandemic has required that both instructors and students make changes to their normal working protocols for courses.

    Students are asked to practice extra care and attention in regard to academic honesty, with the understanding that all cases of plagiarism, cheating, multiple submission, and unauthorized collaboration are subject to penalty. Students must properly cite and attribute all sources used for papers and assignments. Students may not collaborate on exams or assignments, directly or through virtual consultation, unless the instructor gives specific permission to do so.

    Posting an exam, assignment, or answers to them on an online forum (before, during, or after the due date), in addition to consulting posted materials, constitutes a violation of the university’s Honesty policy.

    Likewise, unauthorized use of live assistance websites, including seeking “expert” help for specific questions during an exam, can be construed as a violation of the honesty policy. All students should be familiar with the University’s Student Academic Honesty Code.
