UALR adheres to a policy that enables all individuals, regardless of race, color, gender, national origin, age, sexual orientation, veterans status, or disability to work and study in an environment unfettered by discriminatory behavior or acts. Harassment of an individual or group will not be condoned and any person – student, faculty, or staff member – who violates this policy will be subject to disciplinary action.
Students will adhere to the highest professional and ethical standards. All work submitted will be the result of each students own effort only. Cheating will be penalized to the maximum allowed by the University policy which may include a final course grade of “F” and referral to the Dean of Students for disciplinary action. Additionally, you are responsible for the security of your work and will be held liable if others use your work or materials to cheat, or if you inappropriately hand in work for others.
UALR's Academic Integrity and Grievance Policy is described in pages 81-87 of the UALR Student Handbook. Academic offenses as described on pages 85-86 of the Handbook may result in a recommendation of a failing grade in the course and referral to the Dean of Students for further disciplinary action.
Definition of Academic Offenses
The following list of offenses, which is by no means all-inclusive, identifies categories that are subject to grade penalty and disciplinary action.

- Buying, selling, stealing, soliciting, or transmitting an examination, or any material purported to be the unreleased content of a coming examination, or the use of such material;
- Substituting for another person during an examination or allowing such substitution for oneself;
