Code of Academic Integrity

Cornell has a code of academic integrity, according to which every student is expected to demonstrate absolute integrity in all academic undertakings. Students and parents or guardians must review The Essential Guide to Academic Integrity at Cornell and the complete academic integrity policy.

Integrity entails a firm adherence to a set of values. The values most essential to an academic community are grounded in intellectual honesty. While both students and faculty members must maintain and further these values, the code is concerned specifically with the conduct of students.

Be sure that you understand the academic code before starting classes.

Class attendance

Students are expected to attend all courses in which they are enrolled, regularly and punctually. If you miss a class, it is your obligation to let the instructor know why, to provide documentation that you were seen at Cornell Health or another health care facility, and to keep up with the coursework.

Students who fail to attend classes, who do not complete assignments, or who are disruptive in any way in the classroom may be dismissed from the program.
