Academic Integrity and Standing

The Office of Academic Integrity handles all questions, from students or from faculty, about academic dishonesty.

Academic integrity is a guiding principle of Hunter College because all students should have the opportunity to learn and perform on a level playing field.

Academic dishonesty includes, but is not limited to:

  • Cheating
  • Plagiarism
  • Obtaining an unfair advantage
  • Falsifying records or documents

This applies whether the dishonesty was intentional or not.

Hunter has the responsibility to review all charges of academic dishonesty and implement sanctions, including, but not limited to, failing the course, official transcript notation, suspension or expulsion when it has been determined that academic dishonesty did occur.

Policies regarding academic integrity are implemented CUNY-wide. If you believe that you have a situation that requires a decision or appeal, please meet with the Associate Director of Student Conduct.
