Academic Integrity

The willingness of instructors to report cases of academic dishonesty is crucial to the overall success of UCI’s policy on academic integrity. These reports enable the Uni­versity to track patterns of offense, identify repeat offenders, and meet the require­ments of due process and civil law. A NEW process for reporting, which has been greatly simplified, was established beginning Fall 2016.
