  8. UTA Honor Code • I pledge, on my honor, to uphold UT Arlington's tradition of academic integrity, a tradition that values hard work and honest effort in the pursuit of academic excellence. • I promise that I will submit only work that I personally create or that I contribute to group collaborations, and I will appropriately reference any work from other sources. I will follow the highest standards of integrity and uphold the spirit of the Honor Code. Spring 2013

  9. What is Academic Integrity? • Being in firm adherence to a code or standard of values • A commitment on the part of the students, faculty and staff, even in the face of adversity, to five fundamental values: • Honesty • Truth • Fairness • Respect • Responsibility Spring 2013

  10. College of Engineering Statement Academic Honesty: The College of Engineering takes scholastic honesty and ethical behavior very seriously. Engineers are entrusted with the safety, health and well being of the public. Students found guilty of scholastic dishonesty will be punished to the full extent permitted by the rules and regulations of U. T. Arlington. Spring 2013

  11. What is Scholastic Dishonesty? • Scholastic dishonesty includes, but is not limited to, cheating, plagiarism, and collusion on an examination or an assignment being offered for credit. • Each student is accountable for work submitted for credit, including group projects. Spring 2013

  12. What is Scholastic Dishonesty? (cont.) • Cheating • Copying another's test or assignment • Communication with another during an exam or assignment (i.e. written, oral or otherwise) • Giving or seeking aid from another when not permitted by the instructor • Possessing or using unauthorized materials during the test • Buying, using, stealing, transporting, or soliciting a test, draft of a test, or answer key Spring 2013

  13. What is Scholastic Dishonesty? (cont.) • Plagiarism • Using someone else's work in your assignment without appropriate acknowledgement • Making slight variations in the language and then failing to give credit to the source • Collusion • Without authorization, collaborating with another when preparing an assignment Spring 2013

  14. Possible Consequences University policy: Students who violate University rules on scholastic dishonesty are subject to disciplinary penalties, including the possibility of failure in the course and dismissal from the University. Since dishonesty harms the individual, all students, and the integrity of the University, policies on scholastic dishonesty will be strictly enforced. Spring 2013
