Academic Integrity

Russell Sage College takes pride in the pursuit of academic excellence and integrity. Students are expected to comply with the stipulations set forth in the “Statement of Academic Honesty,” included in the Student Handbook, which outlines the procedures used to enforce the spirit of academic honesty at the College.

Academic dishonesty and misconduct violate the essential mission of an academic institution and will not be tolerated in any of its forms. Academic dishonesty and misconduct include:

  • using material not authorized by the instructor to complete an exam;
  • knowingly doing another person’s academic work;
  • presenting the written ideas, representations, or words of another without citing the appropriate sources;
  • failing to cooperate in the investigation of any student being accused of academic dishonesty/misconduct.
