With the fall semester underway, I want to remind you about your commitment to the Aggie Code of Honor: An Aggie does not lie, cheat, or steal, or tolerate those who do.
As a student, it is your responsibility to take steps to avoid committing, or appearing to commit, academic misconduct. This responsibility extends beyond your in-class activities and includes the assignments you complete outside of class such as homework, papers, and projects. The responsibility also extends beyond face-to-face meetings and includes interactions you have through online platforms such as group texting applications or virtual tutoring services. While many of the services provided can be helpful, they can also be misused for cheating, including use of unauthorized materials or assistance.
The Aggie Honor System Office provides clear examples of what constitutes academic dishonesty. You can also find useful videos and resources to help you avoid an academic misconduct accusation. Finally, if you have questions about any of your courses, please reach out to your instructor to ask about their expectations regarding collaboration, working in groups, and other academic integrity issues.
