The College of Engineering (COE) holds academic integrity as a core value. All students are expected to know and adhere to the OSU Student Code of Conduct, published by the Office of Student Conduct and Community Standards (SCCS). The Code of Conduct is available here.  For accessibility and language options, please contact SCCS directly at

For more information on what constitutes academic misconduct and resources for students, we recommend the Academic Integrity Tutorial available through the OSU Libraries Research Guides.  

We suggest you complete all four parts of the Tutorial: 1) the introduction video; 2) the terminology page; 3) the issues page and 4) the assessment portion. On each page, there are many different sources of information. Check out the pull down menus, the links to issues and videos, and other buttons and resources. On the Issues page, you will find videos from international students and their experiences, as well as videos from faculty, staff, and employers.

Professional responsibility begins with ethical conduct in classroom and community. We expect our students and graduates to serve our communities as engineers with professional integrity, advanced knowledge, and cutting-edge skills backed by a world-class degree. 


If an Academic Misconduct Report has been filed against you, follow the steps outlined on the SCCS webpage

Note: if you are found responsible and you decide to appealing your Academic Misconduct violation, you must include new information about the violation and your responsibility for it. You may not simply ask the decisions that your instructor and dean have made to be reconsidered without additional new information. 

The ASOSU Office of Advocacy representatives are available to help students with the academic misconduct process.

Note: Where ‘advisors’ are referenced in the process; these are NOT your academic advisors.  Examples of academic misconduct advisors are representatives from ASOSU or a representative from a student organization who is not cited in the incident. 


To file an academic misconduct report, follow the steps outlined on the SCCS website :

If you are filing more than 5 reports at a time, please contact to discuss electronic upload options.
