Academic Integrity: A Student Guide

First-Year Writing Program Academic Integrity Policy

The First-Year Writing Program at Montclair State University values students’ honest efforts in the classroom and as writers. Should you choose to commit academic dishonesty—turning in written work as your own that you have copied from some other source, whether a website, print media or even another student—your professor will work with the First-Year Writing director to determine an appropriate course of action. You have the right to appeal the decision and also to request a meeting with your professor and the First-Year Writing Program Director. Also please familiarize yourself with The University’s Definition and Policy on Academic Dishonesty and Plagiarism.
