Academic Integrity Policies

Student studying in a library.

The University at Buffalo takes very seriously its commitment to principles of academic integrity as foundational to the enterprise of teaching and learning. Our academic community expects the highest ethical behavior on the part of our students in the completion and submission of academic work. Regardless of whether instruction is in-person or remote, it is every student’s responsibility to complete their work in an honest fashion, upholding both the expectations of their individual instructors as well as the university’s broader academic integrity policy. Only through these practices can students maintain their personal integrity and ensure UB’s tradition of academic excellence.

In cases of academic misconduct violations, the university will pursue appropriate sanctions subject to official policy.
