Statement of Academic Integrity & Academic Integrity Database

The University of Michigan-Dearborn values academic honesty and integrity. Each student has a responsibility to understand, accept, and comply with the University’s standards of academic conduct as set forth by the Code of Academic Conduct, as well as policies established by the schools and colleges. Cheating, collusion, misconduct, fabrication, and plagiarism are considered serious offenses. Violations will not be tolerated and may result in penalties up to and including expulsion from the University.

Academic Integrity Database

The University of Michigan-Dearborn maintains a database on academic integrity violations. The purpose of the database is to properly track and record Academic Code of Conduct violations committed by students so a college knows when a student has committed two or more violations. 

These violations are considered part of a student's academic record until they are expunged. The removal of an Academic Code of Conduct violation does not occur until a student graduates from the University of Michigan-Dearborn or after eight years from the initial violation, whichever comes first.
