Academic Integrity

Embry-Riddle is committed to maintaining and upholding intellectual integrity.

All students, faculty, and staff have obligations to prevent violations of academic integrity and take corrective action when they occur. The adjudication process will involve imposing sanctions that may include, but are not limited to, a failing grade on the assignment, a failing grade in a course, suspension, or dismissal from the University, upon students who commit the following academic violations:

  1. Plagiarism: Presenting the ideas, words, or products of another as one’s own. Plagiarism includes use of any source to complete academic assignments without proper acknowledgement of the source. Reuse or resubmission of a student’s own coursework, if previously used or submitted in another course, is considered self-plagiarism and is also not allowed under University policy.
  2. Cheating: A broad term that includes, but is not limited to, the following:
    1. Giving or receiving help from unauthorized persons or materials during examinations.
    2. The unauthorized communication of examination questions prior to, during, or following administration of the examination.
    3. Collaboration on examinations or assignments expected to be, or presented as, individual work.
    4. Fraud and deceit that include knowingly furnishing false or misleading information or failing to furnish appropriate information when requested, such as when applying for admission to the University.
    5.  Instructors who have reason to believe that academic integrity has been compromised, a document will be sent to the college for review. The college representative, registrar, and faculty will be part of the process. Sanctions will be agreed upon by these individuals, and a committee may convene for review.
