Student Academic Integrity Policy

The academic community of the University of Maine at Presque Isle recognizes that adherence to high principles of academic integrity is vital to the academic function of the University. Academic integrity is based upon honesty. All students of the University are expected to be honest in their academic endeavors. All academic work should be performed in a manner, which will provide an honest reflection of the knowledge and abilities of each student. All members of the academic community should regard any breach of academic honesty as a serious offense.

If you are a student with a disability and need an accommodation or the faculty member of a student who has requested or may need an accommodation, please visit the Disability Services website or contact Mary Kate Barbosa, Director of Student Support Services/Disability Services.
