Honor and Integrity System

Student GroupA Community of Integrity and Trust

Imagine this ......a campus community where instructors clarify their expectations for academic work and students respect those parameters. It is happening here at K-State, with the help of all involved. Education, consultation, mediation, adjudication: We do it all with student and faculty development in mind!

Beginning in the fall 1999 semester, Kansas State University initiated the Honor and Integrity System based on personal integrity, which is presumed to be a sufficient assurance that, in academic matters, one's work is performed honestly and without unauthorized assistance.

Undergraduate and graduate students, when they register, acknowledge the jurisdiction of the K-State Honor and Integrity System. The policies and procedures of the Honor and Integrity System apply to all full and part-time students enrolled in undergraduate and graduate courses on-campus, off-campus, as well as on-line. A component vital to the Honor and Integrity System is the inclusion of the Honor Pledge, which applies to all assignments, examinations, and other course work undertaken by students.

K-State Honor Pledge: "On my honor, as a student, I have neither given nor received unauthorized aid on this academic work."
