All students must read and understand the principles of academic conduct described in the Academic Integrity Policy for Graduate Students which each student receives upon matriculation. Failure to abide by these principles can have serious consequences. The policy describes offenses that violate academic integrity and the procedure to be followed where there appears to be misconduct. University policy does not allow individual faculty members, departments, divisions, or students to adjudicate charges of integrity violations at the course or departmental level. Allegations of academic integrity infractions must be filed in writing with the Associate Dean of the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences.
Entering Division students also receive the Washington University Student Conduct Code, describing the University’s judicial system and the procedures for filing complaints, and for adjudicating violations.
