HONR 219Q Syllabus - University Standards

Academic Integrity

The University of Maryland, College Park has a nationally recognized Code of Academic Integrity, administered by the Student Honor Council. This Code sets standards for academic integrity at Maryland for all undergraduate and graduate students. As a student you are responsible for upholding these standards for this course. It is very important for you to be aware of the consequences of cheating, fabrication, facilitation, and plagiarism. For more information on the Code of Academic Integrity or the Student Honor Council, please visit http://www.studenthonorcouncil.umd.edu/whatis.html.

The University is one of a small number of universities with a student-administered Honor Code and an Honor Pledge, available on the web at www.jpo.umd.edu/aca/honorpledge.html. The Code prohibits students from cheating on exams, plagiarizing papers, submitting the same paper for credit in two courses without authorization, buying papers, submitting fraudulent documents, and forging signatures.

Religious Observances

The University of Maryland policy provides that students should not be penalized for participation in religious observances and that, whenever feasible, they be allowed to make up academic assignments that are missed due to such absences. It is the student's responsibility to inform the instructor of any intended absences for religious observances in advance. Notice should be given as soon as possible but no later than the schedule adjustment period. Prior notification is especially important in connection with final examinations, since failure to reschedule a final examination before the conclusion of the final examination period may result in loss of credits during the semester.

Academic Accommodations

If you have a documented disability, you should contact Disability Support Services 0126 Shoemaker Hall. Each semester students with documented disabilities should applyfor accommodation request forms that you can provide to your professors as proof of your eligibility for accommodations. The rules for eligibility and the types of accommodations a student may request can be reviewed on the DSS web site at http:www.counseling.umd.edu/DSS/receiving_serv.html.
