FIU Values Academic Integrity
FIU Online expects that all members of its academic community adhere to the highest ethical and professional standards. To ensure that we maintain academic integrity, we have developed policies and procedures designed to support academic excellence and intellectual growth. Academic dishonesty undermines the educational experience for everyone, and we ask that all FIU Online students familiarize themselves with rules and policies concerning academic misconduct.
By taking an online course as a student, you agree to adhere to FIU’s Student Content of Honor Code. FIU Online collaborates with The Office of Student Conduct and Academic Integrity (SCAI), which works to ensure that FIU is a “safe and stimulating environment in which scholarship and personal growth may occur.” For details on FIU’s academic integrity policy and procedures, please review SCAI’s Student Conduct and Academic Integrity webpage below.
Learn It to Earn It
Learn It to Earn It is FIU Online’s campaign to promote a culture of academic integrity at FIU, based on the institution’s core values of Truth, Freedom, Respect, Responsibility, and Excellence. Learn It to Earn It is premised upon the idea that students should earn their grades and their degrees through learning their course material and engaging in actions that exemplify academic integrity. Through a pledge campaign, promotional materials, and engaging informational videos, FIU Online, in partnership with other university stakeholders, is doing its part to promote academic integrity among FIU students.
