The University's Code of Academic Integrity is a nationally recognized honor code, administered by a Student Honor Council. Any of the following acts, when committed by a student, shall constitute academic dishonesty:
Cheating: fraud, deceit, or dishonesty in any academic course or exercise in an attempt to gain an unfair advantage and/or intentionally using or attempting to use unauthorized materials, information, or study aids in any academic course or exercise.
Fabrication: intentional and unauthorized falsification or invention of any information or citation in any academic course or exercise.
Facilitating academic dishonesty: Intentionally or knowingly helping or attempting to help another to violate any provision of the Code of Academic Integrity.
Plagiarism: Intentionally or knowingly representing the words or ideas of another as one's own in any academic course or exercise.
If it is determined that an act of academic dishonesty has occurred, a grade of XF is considered the normal sanction for undergraduate students. The grade of XF is noted on the academic transcript as failure due to academic dishonesty. Lesser or more severe sanctions may be imposed when there are circumstances to warrant such consideration. Suspension or expulsion from the University may be imposed even for a first offense.
Students should consult the Code of Academic Integrity, at www.president.umd.edu/policies/2014-iii-100a.html for further information regarding procedures for reporting and resolving allegations of academic dishonesty.
