Academic Integrity at Stonehill

The Office of Academic Services & Advising plays an active role in upholding the academic integrity policy and overseeing implementation of academic integrity procedures. We strive to be a valuable resource for students and faculty as they navigate issues of academic integrity.

If a student or faculty member feels the academic integrity policy has been violated, they should address the issue with the student and file an academic integrity report.

Please call our office at 508-565-1306 for guidance.

    4. Fabricating data;
    5. Submitting the same assignment in two or more courses without prior permission of the respective instructors;
    6. Having another person write a paper or sit for an examination;
    7. Unauthorized use or electronic devices to complete work; or
    8. Furnishing false information, including lying or fabricating excuses, for incomplete work.

    Academic Honor Code

    In the context of a community of scholarship and faith, and anchored in a belief in the inherent dignity of each person, the students, faculty, staff and administration of Stonehill College maintain an uncompromising commitment to academic integrity. We promote a climate of intellectual and ethical integrity and vigorously uphold the fundamental values of honesty, trust, fairness, and responsibility while fostering an atmosphere of mutual respect within and beyond the classroom. Any violation of these basic values threatens the integrity of the educational process, the development of ideas, and the unrestricted exchange of knowledge. Therefore, we will not participate in or tolerate academic dishonesty.
