UO consequences for academic dishonesty

UO takes academic honesty very seriously. Punishments for violation of the academic honesty policy ranges from failing a class to a mark on your academic record to dismissal from the University. See the Student Code of Conduct page for more information.

And fallout from academically dishonest practices doesn’t end when you graduate. People who cheat or plagiarize can:

  • lose their jobs and/or their vocational licensures (for example, a lawyer or doctor),
  • face legal action,
  • have graduate school admissions revoked, or
  • be publicly called out for unethical behavior.
