Course & Instructional SupportAcademic Integrity/Code of ConductOverview

Student behavior is guided by two major policies at the University of Arizona: The Code of Academic Integrity and the Student Code of Conduct. Potential violations of either of these codes must be taken seriously and procedure must be followed.  See the following links for more information on the codes, and the procedures for each.

Code of Academic Integrity

Integrity and ethical behavior are expected of every student in all academic work. This Academic Integrity principle stands for honesty in all class work, and ethical conduct in all labs and clinical assignments.

Student Code of Conduct

The aim of education is the intellectual, personal, social, and ethical development of the individual. The educational process is ideally conducted in an environment that encourages reasoned discourse, intellectual honesty, openness to constructive change, and respect for the rights of all individuals. Self -discipline and a respect for the rights of others in the university community are necessary for the fulfillment of such goals. The Student Code of Conduct is designed to promote this environment at each of the state universities.
