Academic Honesty. Academic integrity is at the core of the educational mission of the institution. Students are expected to conduct themselves with honesty and forthrightness in all academic and personal interactions within the University community. A student who enrolls at the University must conduct himself/herself in a manner compatible with the University’s function as an educational institution. Consequently, conduct that offends the core mission of education is strictly prohibited. Academic dishonesty is a general term for actions that are not representative of the student’s own work or in keeping with the directives of the faculty member assigning the course work. Some of the more common forms (not a comprehensive list) of academic dishonesty are: cheating, plagiarism, collusion, the substitution for credit of any work or materials that are attributable in whole or in part to another person, taking an examination for another person, any act designed to give unfair advantage to a student or the attempt to commit such acts.
Violations of University Policy: Official university policy states that all suspected cases of alleged academic dishonesty must be referred to the Dean of Students for investigation and appropriate disposition. Under the University of Texas System Reagents’ Rules, the Dean of Students has primary authority and responsibility for the administration of student discipline, including academic dishonesty. It is contrary to university policy for a faculty member to assign a disciplinary grade such as "F" or zero to an assignment, test, examination, or other course work as a sanction for admitted or suspected scholastic dishonesty in lieu of formally charging the student through the Dean of Students. Similarly, students are prohibited from proposing and/or entering into an arrangement with a faculty member to receive a grade of "F" or any other reduced grade in lieu of being charged with academic dishonesty. Disciplinary sanctions for proven academic dishonesty will range from disciplinary probation, to a failing grade on the test, paper, or course, to suspension or dismissal from the University, among other sanctions. All research papers, term papers, or other writing intensive assignments in this course must adhere to APA style. Students are expected to submit all papers with the appropriate citations, references, etc. If you are unsure of the parameters of this writing style, please contact the course instructor for further information. Style guides are available in the University Bookstore. Unless otherwise instructed, all assignments are to be done individually

Scholastic Dishonesty: The University of Texas at El Paso prides itself on its standards of academic excellence. In all matters of intellectual pursuit, UTEP faculty and students must strive to achieve based on the quality of the work produced by the individual. In the classroom and in all other academic activities, students are expected to uphold the highest standards of academic integrity. Any form of scholastic dishonesty is an affront to the pursuit of knowledge and jeopardizes the quality of the degree awarded to all graduates of UTEP. Any student who commits an act of scholastic dishonesty is subject to discipline. Scholastic dishonesty includes, but is not limited to cheating, plagiarism, collusion, the submission for credit of any work or materials that are attributable in whole or in part to another person, talking an examination for another person, any act designed to give unfair advantage to a student or the attempt to commit such acts. Proven violations of the detailed regulations, as printed in the Handbook of Operating Procedures (HOP) and available in the Office of the Dean of Students, may result in sanctions ranging from disciplinary probation, to failing grades on the work in question, to failing grades in the course, to suspension or dismissal, among others.
