Academic Conduct

Faculty of Computing & Data Sciences Policy

At Boston University, all students are expected to maintain high standards of academic honesty and integrity. All students are responsible for having read Boston University’s Academic Conduct Code and should understand what constitutes a violation of the Code.

At the Faculty of Computing & Data Sciences, the Academic Conduct Committee—composed of faculty, administrators, and students—investigates all charges of academic misconduct brought against students. The procedure is managed by the Academic Conduct Code Administrator in lieu of a designated dean.

In all charges of academic misconduct against a student, the student is entitled to full procedural fairness in any disciplinary proceedings that may be conducted. A description of the procedures adopted by the Academic Conduct Committee appears in Boston University’s Academic Conduct Code.
