"A Culture of Honesty" is The University of Georgia's policy about academic honesty.
Every student who enrolls at the University agrees to be bound by the policy.
This means that each student has a responsibility to read the policy and comply
with it. It's no defense to a charge of academic dishonesty to say
'I didn't know that was prohibited.' Students must perform all of their academic
work without plagiarizing, cheating, lying, tampering, stealing, receiving
assistance from others (unless the faculty member authorizes that assistance)
or using sources to assist in that work (without giving fair attribution).

We appreciate the fact that honesty runs rampant in our classes. We strive
to have a culture of complete academic honesty. Thus, The University's Academic
Honesty Policy is in effect. However, violations have actually occurred. If an
alleged incident occurs, the situation will immediately be documented and
sent to the Office of the Vice-President for Academic Affairs for processing,
and your grade in this course will be an NR (Not Reported) until the matter has
run through due process. Officials in that Office will directly contact all
parties involved. If you have any questions, refer to The University's Academic
Honesty Guidelines in University of Georgia Publications for more details on the
rules and procedures (also at www.uga.edu/ovpi). Again,
we do appreciate your honesty.
Academic Honesty and Group Work Policy: Please note that if a group member does
not participate in a group assignment, The University's Academic Honesty Policy
prohibits his or her name from appearing on it.
Academic Honesty and Individual Work: It is expected that students will learn from
the Instructor, texts, other books, and possibly from fellow students. All materials
for a grade must be the student's own effort (except for group assignments,
if any). (For group assignments, materials submitted for a grade must be from
the efforts of the students who are members of the group and no others.)
Assignments in this category are to be accomplished individually. This means
that you are not to solve problems together or compare answers prior to turning
in the work. Cooperative efforts on individual work will result in an immediate
score of zero for all parties involved. The situation will immediately be
forwarded to the Office of the Vice-President for Academic Affairs. Please refer
to The University's Academic Honesty Policy (http://www.uga.edu/ovpi) for more
