The School of Education and Human Development at FIU will not tolerate plagiarism. Each instructor will discuss the forms of plagiarism in class. Students are responsible for making sure they have a clear understanding of the definition of plagiarism. All students will sign an Academic Misconduct Agreement stating that they have read and understood FIU's Statement on Academic Misconduct.
Please refer to the Student Conduct and Honor Code in Academic Integrity.
Academic Misconduct is defined as any act or omission by a Student, which violates the concept of academic integrity and undermines the academic mission of the University in violation of the Code.
Academic Misconduct Violations
Sanctions may be imposed upon any Charged Student or Student Organization found to have violated the Code. Students who are found “Responsible” for Academic Misconduct violations under the Code are prohibited from using the Grade Forgiveness Policy for the course in which the Academic Misconduct occurred.
Upon receipt of notification of allegations of Academic Misconduct, a Student can choose to withdraw from the course in question, in accordance with the University policies related to course withdrawal. Students who withdraw from a course will have their ability to register for future semesters temporarily placed on hold until the SCAI Director or designee is assured that the Student is satisfactorily responding to the charges. Students who are found “Responsible” of Academic Misconduct in a course from which they have withdrawn are still eligible to receive the appropriate sanctions (as listed in the Code Section 15) based on the case and may be reinstated to the course from which they have withdrawn.
In addition to the Course Sanctions and selected University Sanctions below, additional University Sanctions, Student Organization Sanctions and Housing Sanctions exist to address different types of violations. Review sanctions in the Student Conduct and Honor Code.
