Hunter College Policy on Academic Integrity

Academic integrity is a guiding principle of the Hunter College learning community because all students should have the opportunity to learn and perform on a level playing field.

Academic dishonesty includes, but is not limited to, cheating, plagiarism, obtaining an unfair advantage, and falsifying records or documents (see CUNY Policy on Academic Integrity for examples) whether intentional or not.

Hunter College upholds the right to promote academic integrity on its campus as an educational institution of the City University of New York. The College has the responsibility to review all charges of academic dishonesty and implement sanctions, including, but not limited to, failing the course, official transcript notation, suspension or expulsion from the College when it has been determined that academic dishonesty did occur.

All questions regarding the procedures or the College's disciplinary process should be referred to the Office of Student Conduct in the Vice President for Student Affairs and Dean of Students office. Please call 212.772.4534, 212.396.6484, or email at
