Check mark in a circleAcademic Integrity/Plagiarism

Academic honesty is very important. It is dishonest to cheat on exams, to copy term papers, to submit papers written by another person, to fake experimental results, or to copy or reword parts of books or articles into your own papers without appropriately citing the source. Students committing or aiding in any of these violations may be given failing grades for an assignment or for an entire course, at the discretion of the instructor. In addition to any academic action taken by an instructor, these violations are also subject to action under the University of Maine Student Conduct Code.  The maximum possible sanction under the student conduct code is dismissal from the University.

Time Management

Learning to manage your time can be critical to your success as an online student. 


Netiquette is the guideline for internet etiquette. This includes, but is not limited to, proper formatting of emails, not posting comments that are hurtful to others, and being a professional in the online setting. Similar to in-person etiquette, netiquette provides rules for conducting oneself in an online social situation.
