Academic Integrity


Academic Integrity is a fundamental value of teaching, learning, and behavior. Maintaining high standards of academic integrity ensures the sustainability of the OPS educational process. Therefore, students are expected to commit to and be responsible for demonstrating the five fundamental values, even in the face of adversity:

1.  Honesty
2.  Trust
3.  Fairness
4.  Respect
5.  Responsibility

The following activities show a lack of academic integrity: cheating, collusion, falsifying records, lying, plagiarism (including electronic), alteration of materials, forgery, or providing or using external assistance relating to an examination, test, quiz, or daily assignment, without the expressed permission of the teacher, including looking at another student's work, sharing answers, or copying another student's work or any act designed to give unfair academic advantage to the student.
