Understanding Consequences-Academic Integrity - Carnegie Mellon University

Understanding Consequences

As stated in the Carnegie Mellon Code, "it is rare that the life of a student in an academic community can be so private that it will not affect the community as a whole." Inherent to this notion that individual decisions have an impact on the community is the idea that individuals are likewise accountable to the community.

In keeping with this concept of accountability, violations of academic integrity carry a range of consequences both at Carnegie Mellon and beyond. Students who have questions about a particular action should consult with their instructor, department head, assistant or association dean, or staff members within the Office of Community Standards & Integrity.
