Community Expectations and Processes

Academic Integrity

Northeastern University is committed to the principles of intellectual honesty and integrity.  All students are expected to adhere to the University’s Academic Integrity Policy and to maintain complete honesty in all academic work, presenting only that which is their own work in tests and assignments. If you have any questions regarding proper attribution of the work of others, contact your professor prior to submitting work for evaluation.

The Code of Student Conduct applies to all registered Northeastern University students at all levels of study, in all colleges and programs, locally or abroad who are enrolled at Northeastern University, as well as all student groups and organizations. Students on co-op are also expected to abide by the Code of Student Conduct. The Code of Student Conduct applies on campus as well as off campus.
