Student Conduct & Academic Integrity

U-M’s prohibited conduct and academic misconduct policies, including those articulated in the Statement of Student Rights and Responsibilities, apply regardless of the modality of instruction. Reporting obligations of Responsible Employees and Campus Security Authorities can also apply to the conduct regardless of the instructional modality, assuming all other conditions triggering these obligations are satisfied. However, academic misconduct and prohibited student misconduct can sometimes look different in the context of digital or remote learning environments (e.g., “Chegging” as a form of cheating and “cyberbullying” as a form of harassment). It is important to recognize how student misconduct policies apply outside of the physical classroom and make appropriate adjustments to language communicated to students regarding these policies and the continued availability of U-M resources to support those harmed when violations occur.
