This Honor Code policy has been endorsed by the University and by faculty in the Department of Public and International Affairs. It indicates the minimal standard that applies to your academic work as indicated below in the following paragraphs:
1. Quizzes, tests, and examinations: No help may be given or received by students when taking quizzes, tests, or examinations, whatever the type or wherever taken, unless the instructor specifically permits deviation from this standard.
2. Course Requirements: All work submitted to fulfill course requirements is to be solely the product of the individual(s) whose name(s) appears on it. Except with permission of the instructor, no recourse is to be had to projects, papers, lab reports or any other written work previously prepared by another student, and except with permission of the instructor no paper or work of any type submitted in partial fulfillment of the requirements of another course may be used a second time to satisfy a requirement of any course in the Department of Public and International Affairs.
3. No assistance is to be obtained from commercial organizations that sell or lease research help or written papers. With respect to all relevant written work, proper footnotes and attribution are required. If you use another person’s words or ideas they must either be footnoted or the source mentioned in your text.
