Code of Academic Integrity & Related Policies & Procedures

The University of Pennsylvania has a well-articulated set of policies and procedures pertaining to the academic and professional conduct of graduate students. These policies and procedures are published biennially in the University’s Graduate Academic Bulletin, available online, at the Office of University Relations, and the Bookstore. Doctoral students are required to obtain a copy of the Graduate Academic Bulletin. Violations or infractions of these policies, including violations of the Code of Academic Integrity, will be processed in accordance with these policies and procedures by the Graduate Group Chair and the Committee on Academic Standing. Students who are found to violate the Code of Academic Integrity may be terminated from the program.
