They should embrace opportunities for engaging in honest intellectual inquiry by practicing academic integrity and its five fundamental values: honesty, trust, fairness, respect and responsibility. The full Academic Integrity Policy can be found in the University Catalog/Academic Information and University Policies.
Reporting a Potential Violation
If you see something that you feel may constitute a violation of the Academic Integrity Policy, please submit a report.
Whether intentional or unintentional, violations of the Academic Integrity policy harm the student, the program, and the University. Rasmussen will work with students on corrective action(s) to help them understand the misconduct, deter future incidents and hold the students accountable.
Reports made through the Online Reporting System or to university personnel will be reviewed to determine if the University’s policy has been violated. While the University will attempt to keep this report confidential within the scope of its review, confidentiality cannot be guaranteed in every circumstance.
