Students studyingThe Environmental Engineering Program adheres to the policies of the University of Colorado Boulder and the College of Engineering and Applied Science on academic honesty, which state:

"As members of the academic community, students have a responsibility to conduct themselves with the highest standards of honesty and integrity. These qualities are also vital to the profession of engineering. Violations of academic ethics tarnish the reputation of all students and will be treated with the utmost seriousness."

Be forewarned and discourage your fellow students from participating in any unethical activities. The following are examples of some, but certainly not all, acts that violate academic ethics:

  • plagiarizing
  • cheating on assignments and exams (including text messaging during exams, quizzes, etc.)
  • possessing or observing of exams or solutions to examinations prior to the exam
  • altering, forging, or falsifying official records
  • performing work or taking an exam for another student
  • providing material/work of your own or of others to a fellow student

The College of Engineering and Applied Science procedures for handling academic ethics violations are available in the Dean’s Office and on the college website. University academic honesty policies are available at the Honor Code website
