Academic integrity and expectations (Cheating/Plagiarism)

Students and all others who work with information, ideas, texts, images, music and other intellectual property owe their audience and sources accuracy and honesty in using, crediting and citing sources. As a community of intellectual and professional workers, the College recognizes its responsibility for providing instruction in information literacy and academic integrity, offering models of good practice and responding vigilantly and appropriately to infractions of academic integrity. Accordingly, academic dishonestly is prohibited in The University of New York and at New York City College of Technology and is punishable by penalties, including failing grades.
