HONR 219Q Syllabus - University Standards
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
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
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.
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.
