With the recognition that students can learn and grow from their mistakes, UB offers an Academic Integrity remediation course to provide direct instruction around the value and practices of academic integrity in the university setting. The remediation process is offered in a number of different circumstances, including:
Designed as an educational intervention to prevent future infractions, the remediation assignment has specific requirements and a strict timeline. Students must sign up for the assignment within 10 academic days of notice from the Office of Academic Integrity. Once begun, the assignment has a 60-day deadline and must be completed prior to graduation.
Successful completion of the remediation assignment will either clear your record with the Office of Academic Integrity or fulfill a mandatory requirement. It will not affect the penalty imposed by your instructor. And for all but the most exceptional cases, it will not lead to the lifting of the hold on your account.
