Academic Integrity

  • According to the University Code, students are bound to comply with the University Code of Conduct  which includes, but is not limited to, the Standards of Academic Integrity.
  • According to these standards, violations include plagiarism, cheating, falsification, unapproved collaboration, and other violations of academic integrity.


According to Fordham's Academic Honor Code, "plagiarism occurs when individuals attempt to present as their own what has come from another source. Plagiarism takes place whether such theft is accidental or deliberate. It is no defense to claim that one has 'forgotten' to document ideas or material taken from another source . . ."

Become familiar with the writing style guide suggested by your professor.  Almost all subject areas have their own style guides. The more common styles are presented under the page "Citation/Documentation;" APA, MLA, and Chicago Manual of Style (CMS).
