Plagiarism and Academic Scholarship Issues

Harvard Extension School expects students to understand and maintain the highest standards of academic integrity.

Being a part of an academic community means that you are supportive of the intellectual freedom and discovery of truth that are key to the successful long-term functioning of Harvard as a place of learning.  The health of this institution relies on the intellectual responsibility and academic integrity of all of its members, including you as you undergo your thesis work.

Breaches of academic integrity are subject to review by the Administrative Board and may be grounds for disciplinary action, up to and including requirement to withdraw from the Extension School and suspension of registration privileges. 

The Extension School website provides examples of academic integrity issues for your review, including plagiarism, scientific research, cheating, inappropriate collaboration, and so forth.
