Academic Integrity Referral Process Academic Integrity Referral Process

Submit an Online
Academic Integrity Referral Form
Any University of Vermont student, staff, or faculty member can report a perceived violation of the Code of Academic Integrity to the CSES office. Upon receipt of a report (referral) from any source, the Coordinator of Academic Integrity will determine whether the report, if true, would constitute a violation of the Code of Academic Integrity. If the alleged behavior described violates a University academic integrity expectation, the student conduct process will begin (see the flow chart for more information on what the process looks like). Any member of the University community that has observed behavior, or has information that reasonably leads to the conclusion that such a violation has occurred or has been attempted, has a responsibility to share that information with the Coordinator of Academic Integrity in the Center for Student Ethics & Standards.

Making a Referral

  • Within two weeks of discovery, the referring party should send a complete written description of the incident including all relevant details and supporting documentation to the Center for Student Ethics & Standards. Reports may be submitted using either a memo format or the web referral form.
  • Referring parties submitting referrals must also provide a copy of the report to each implicated student.
  • Faculty members submitting a report for a student in their class may recommend a sanction. The recommended sanction will be taken into consideration, however, the final decision is made by the Coordinator of Academic Integrity or Academic Integrity Council.
  • Submit supporting documentation (e.g. tests, papers, webpages, etc.) to:

Via campus mail/email:
Coordinator of Academic Integrity
Center for Student Ethics & Standards
Nicholson House
cses@uvm.edu

Via non-campus mail:
