Academic Integrity

The Division of Student Affairs and Services maintains the general MSU student regulations including information on students’ rights and responsibilities. Even though common sense should tell you what most of the rules are, please take time to read them; hearing panels do not accept “ignorance of the law” as an excuse. Students who violate these rules affect not only themselves but also the integrity, hard work, and honest effort of other students. As members of a university community of scholars, it is your collective obligation to join us in abiding by and enforcing the rules that make us a community.

The MSU Office of the Ombudsperson web site also maintains information on MSU policies, regulations and ordinances regarding academic honesty and integrity.
