Academic Integrity

EKU Campus


EKU students are expected to adhere to the highest standards of academic integrity. Students who are found guilty of academic dishonesty will be sanctioned in a manner that is appropriate to the infraction. Sanctions may range from receiving a failing grade on the assignment to being assigned a failing grade in the course. Stronger sanctions are possible in the event a case is assigned to the Student Disciplinary Council. Students who are assigned a grade of “F” or “FX” in a course due to academic dishonesty will not be permitted to withdraw from the course.

For a full description of academic dishonesty, including plagiarism, cheating, and fabrication, refer to the section entitled Academic Integrity Policy in the University Handbook for Students.
