Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities

Fairness | Honesty | Respect | Responsibility | Trust

The Academic Integrity Policy was created by faculty based on the core values and ideals of practice as recommended by the Center for Academic Integrity.

New Academic Integrity Policy Approved

The UNCG Faculty Senate reviewed and approved the Academic Integrity Policy.
The policy, in its entirety, is available online at Student Policy Handbook: Academic Integrity.

New Academic Integrity Referral Process

The Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities, which handles all student conduct and academic integrity functions, has made it easier to report an incident of academic misconduct to our office. Click on “Report an Academic Integrity Violation“, which will direct you to more detailed information about reporting a violation. You will be able to upload all materials including the Academic Integrity Violation Report Form in one convenient location which will automatically be sent to the Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities for review and action.

Faculty Reported Violations

Alleged violations of the Academic Integrity Policy may be resolved in one of two ways:

Faculty-Student Joint Conference
The faculty member and student may address the allegation
Academic Integrity Hearing
If the student pleas not responsible a disciplinary hearing is held to determine the accuracy of the allegations.

Peer Reported Violations

If a student suspects another student of a violation of the Academic Integrity Policy, the student is urged to inform the instructor of the alleged circumstance. In such cases, the instructor is urged to arrange a conference with the accused student as provided in “Faculty-Student Joint Conference.”

If a student falsely accuses another student of a violation, they will be subject to disciplinary action under the Student Code of Conduct.
