Academic Integrity

Academic Integrity

As members of the USC Marshall School of Business community, we are guided by the highest levels of academic integrity in the pursuit of our mission to engage in scholarly research and deliver high quality educational programs. Our commitment to treat all members of the Marshall community with respect and dignity and to maintain the highest standards of ethics, inclusivity, and integrity is unwavering. We abide by the qualities of the ideal Trojan: FAITHFUL, SCHOLARLY, SKILLFUL, COURAGEOUS, AMBITIOUS.

Academic Integrity and Adjudication Process:

  • For USC Marshall Undergraduate students, issues of academic integrity and the adjudication process are handled by the USC Judicial Affairs and Community Standards.
  • For USC Marshall Graduate students, issues of academic integrity and the adjudication process are handled by the USC Marshall Academic Integrity Coordinator (AIC).

Marshall Graduate Programs takes academic integrity very seriously. Students’ actions protect (or harm) the integrity and value not only of their own graduate degree, but also of their classmates and alumni. When in doubt about what kind of collaboration is permissable, a good general rule is to check with your professor.

Per USC’s Academic Integrity Review Guidelines, academic integrity violations in the Marshall Graduate Programs are handled at the school level led by the Academic Integrity Coordinator. Click here to review Marshall Graduate Programs’ Academic Integrity Violation Adjudication Process.
