What is the policy on academic dishonesty at OSU?
Academic or Scholarly Dishonesty is prohibited and considered a serious violation of the Student Conduct Code. It is defined as an act of deception in which a Student seeks to claim credit for the work or effort of another person, or uses unauthorized materials or fabricated information in any academic work or research, either through the Student's own efforts or the efforts of another.
A detailed outline of the reporting process along with the applicable Academic Dishonesty Report Form (ADRF) may be accessed at these links:
Grade penalties imposed as a result of academic dishonesty are entirely up to the instructor, department and college or school. A student may appeal the charge of academic dishonesty and the penalty imposed in accordance with the procedure outlined below, or with a procedure developed by the department, college or school in which the course is offered.
