Academic Policies/Rackham Policies

Last modified: July 23, 2014

Graduate students in School of Education academic programs are governed by both School of Education academic policies and those of the Rackham Graduate School.

The academic policies and regulations of the Rackham Graduate School ensure consistent standards in admissions, registration, requirements, and the awarding of degrees across all Rackham graduate programs. The Rackham Graduate School also upholds standards of academic conduct and integrity and provides a process for the resolution of disputes related to equity and fairness of decisions or procedures that affect a student’s academic standing and progress toward the degree.

Academic Integrity

Intellectual and academic honesty and responsibility are fundamental to our scholarly endeavors. All members of the university community, including students, faculty, and staff, are expected to demonstrate integrity. Academic integrity includes, but is not limited to, plagiarism, cheating, research integrity, and falsification of data.
