Academic Integrity


"Integrity starts with I"

Academic Integrity is a cornerstone of Missouri State University. The University is strongly committed to the practice of ethical values by administration, faculty, staff, and students. Integrity is a daily choice that each individual must make. The Missouri State University community provides resources so that members of the student body are made aware of the ethical standards, so that they can make informed choices concerning the Missouri State University Student Code of Conduct and Academic Integrity Policies and Procedures. Adherence to these policies is expected from all members of Missouri State University's academic community. Missouri State University believes that exercising standards of integrity is part of a complete education.
