Expectations for Academic Honesty

Academic dishonesty is considered a severe violation of EMU policy and standards of conduct. Dishonesty includes copying from anothers work in an examination, submitting the same work in more than one course without the instructors knowledge and permission, and collaboration in course assignments without permission and acknowledgment.

Plagiarism, the intentional use of ideas and writings taken from another source without proper credit, is a serious offense. Knowingly helping or allowing someone else to cheat is also an act of academic dishonesty.

Students often submit paper which they have researched via the Internet. Remember, even information you have obtained on-line may not be used in a paper without giving it proper acknowledgment, or citing the appropriate authority.

Academic dishonesty can result in a failing grade for the course and may also result in your termination from the University.
