Beyond Carnegie MellonIn addition to the consequences at Carnegie Mellon, the presence of a disciplinary report for an academic integrity violation also carries consequences beyond Carnegie Mellon.
When we report out
In order for the Office of Community Standards & Integrity to release information about a student’s disciplinary record to a prospective employer or graduate school, the student must authorize the release of that information in writing.
Student Affairs is notified of the authorization and once it is received, the Office of Community Standards & Integrity contacts the student to confirm that the authorization has been received.
What is reported
Student Affairs provides the employer or graduate school with a letter that notes the number of violation(s), the course in which each violation occurred, the policy violation, and the outcome. It will also note the status of the case.
Students are considered to be in good standing if there is no disciplinary record or if they have fulfilled the terms of any sanctions from a policy violation. Students are not considered to be in good standing if there are any outstanding penalties.
