Honor Code

The honor code at ECPI is based upon individual integrity.  This code assumes that each student accept his/her role in the academic community with a feeling of self-respect and duty.

The Honor Code states: I pledge to support the Honor Code of ECPI and will refrain from any form of academic dishonesty or deception, such as cheating or plagiarism. I am aware that as a member of the academic community it is my responsibility to turn in all suspected violators of the honor code. I understand that any failure on my part to support the Honor System will be turned over to a Judicial Review Board for review. I will report to a Judicial Review Board hearing if summoned.

Each student attending ECPI is required to sign the Honor Code as part of his/her Enrollment Certification. Therefore, it follows that work submitted by a student must be his/her own work. Suspected violations of the Honor Code should be reported either to the Academic Program Director, Campus Director of Academic Affairs, or the Campus President. If the Judicial Review Board (refer to the Catalog section that defines this board) determines that a violation of the Honor Code has occurred, the offending student will be disciplined, up to and including involuntary dismissal from the University.
