Academic Integrity

Academic integrity is an important character trait for all students. While students often feel pressure to earn high grades, few employers dwell on a student's GPA. One's integrity, however, is always important to employers and colleagues. Students benefit in the long run when they work honestly, take responsibility, and accept grades that reflect their work.

All LTU Online students are expected to:

  • Submit original work done by the student, specifically for the course. This means that it is wrong to submit work done by someone else, or to re-submit work that a student has prepared during a prior course.
  • Cite all sources used to prepare your work, and clearly identify and give credit to the thoughts and ideas of others. Students must cite their sources using the conventions set forth by the American Psychological Association (APA).
  • Work without assistance from peers or books (unless permitted by the instructor) during quizzes and examinations.
  • Follow the guidelines set forth by the instructor for completing individual or group class assignments. It is unacceptable to copy another student's work in any form when completing an individual assignment.

Lawrence Tech subscribes to a comprehensive Academic Honor Code and all LTU Online students are expected to abide by the provisions of this code.
