Code of Student Conduct and Academic Integrity

While enrolled at The Ohio State University, graduate students are expected to abide by the Code of Student Conduct. This Code prohibits certain types of student behavior such as inflicting emotional or bodily harm, dishonest conduct, failure to comply with University officials, and academic misconduct. Cases of alleged academic misconduct are adjudicated through a formal hearing process by the Committee on Academic Misconduct (COAM), a standing committee of the University Senate.

If you have any questions about the Code of Conduct or what constitutes academic misconduct in a course, please contact the Chair of the Graduate Studies Committee. Other sources of information on academic misconduct (integrity) to which you can refer include:
