Below are Frequently Asked Questions about the Office of Academic Integrity for students: please click on each question to see its answer. If you have any additional questions, please email email@example.com.
Instructors are required to report Academic Integrity violations to the UNT Academic Integrity Office if they deem that a preponderance of evidence shows a violation. The faculty, administration, and students all have had input on the formulation of Student Academic Integrity Policy (UNT Policy 6.003). The university has deemed academic integrity a value intrinsic to education and to the validity of a UNT degree. You have the due process right to appeal the instructor's Academic Integrity Violation report.
The forms are located in the Student Academic Integrity Policy. Use the Appeal of Academic Integrity Single Violation form for EACH violation you want to appeal, including multiple violations that apply to the same incident (i.e. both a Plagiarism and Facilitating Academic Dishonesty charge from a recent exam). The policy states you must file an appeal within 5 business days of being informed of the violation. If you are filing a grade appeal, the Academic Integrity Office does not handle that. You will need to go through the grade appeal process.
Your Academic Integrity records are only accessible by the Academic Integrity Officers and their assistant. No information about academic integrity will appeal on your transcript.
For major or multiple violations of the Student Policy on Academic Integrity, you will need to meet with an Academic Integrity Officer to discuss the violations. The AI Officer may decide to impose additional sanctions depending on the severity of the case. These additional sanctions may range from a period of probation to expulsion from the university. Also, the AI Officer may be able to refer you to services that can assist you academically or personally.
