Undergraduate Student Handbook

Being Truthful

Honesty and integrity are vital aspects of the community accountability process. When a student tells the truth it is honorable and highly valued, even if it means being honest about making a mistake.  It is a community expectation that students are honest when asked questions about a situation where potential lifestyle or policy violations occurred.  If a student lies to university personnel the severity of the circumstances may be escalated.  Lying increases the seriousness of the situation and the degree of consequences that may be incurred by the student.  Being truthful is imperative and expected.
