Academic Integrity Education Program

**This program is ONLY designed for students who have received an honor code violation. If you are a faculty member looking for educational tools for your classroom, please see Information for Faculty.

Undergraduate Academic Integrity Education Program

The Office of Undergraduate Academic Integrity leads an Academic Integrity Education Program (AIEP) that explores the ethical implications of the academic enterprise, including the creation and communication of new knowledge. The program is designed to further enhance the VT-Shaped learning experience by using academic misconduct violations as teachable moments for students. The AIEP is a two-part program designed to educate students about academic integrity and ethics. The first part of the program is an online or in-person seminar on academic integrity that focuses on the Virginia Tech Honor Code. The second part is an online ethics module.

Completion Information

This program is required for students who are assigned the Academic Integrity Education Program as a sanction or who wish to petition the Honor System to remove the “*” from the F* sanction on their academic transcript.

If a completion date is specified in a student’s sanction letter, it is the student’s responsibility to complete all parts of the AIEP before the time specified in their letter. Students should keep in mind that their assignments will need to be graded. Students should not wait until the date that their sanction completion is due to submit their assignments.

If a student does not have a due date in their sanction letter and they wish to have the “*” removed from their transcript, they are able to complete the program on their own time as there is no due date requiring completion.
