The Graduate College Handbook

for students, faculty and staff – August 2017

A. Standards of Conduct

The Graduate College and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have established policies and standards for academic, professional, and personal conduct. Students are responsible for being familiar with these policies and standards (see the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research, the Provost’s Office on Campus Conduct, and the Student Code). Conduct that violates these policies and standards may result in serious consequences including dismissal. In addition to the information in this chapter, also see the Graduate College Web site for resources on problem solving and conflict mediation. Students should also review the section on Academic Integrity, located in chapter 3 of this document.
