Honor Code

The awarding of a university degree suggests that a learner has demonstrated mastery of a significant body of knowledge and skills of substantive value to a community. Any sort of dishonesty in securing those credentials invites very serious sanctions to include suspension and/or expulsion (see Code of Ethics – Academic Integrity. Examples of academic dishonesty include actual or attempted cheating, plagiarism, or knowingly furnishing false information to a university employee.

Academic Dishonesty is submitting anything for credit for one course that has already been submitted for credit in another course. Plagiarism is best known as accepting credit for non-original work, or work performed by others.

Code of Ethics

  1. Students are expected to be honest in all academic work. A student’s name on any academic exercise (theme, report, notebook, paper, examination) shall be regarded as assurance that the work is the result of the student’s own thought and study.
  2. Plagiarism is the unacknowledged appropriation of another’s work, words, or ideas in any themes, outlines, papers, reports, or computer programs and is prohibited by the University. Students must follow the appropriate means of documentation if they wish to cite the works of another individual in their writing assignments.
  3. Students shall not alter any official University record.
  4. Students shall not furnish false or misleading information to University officials.
  5. Students are responsible for making certain that their financial obligations to the University are met.

Avoiding Plagiarism: Mastering the Art of Scholarship

In writing, we draw upon others’ words and ideas and the intellectual heritage underlying human progress. Scholarship entails researching, understanding, and building upon the work of others, but also requires that proper credit be given for any “borrowed” material. Students are responsible for ethical scholarship, and for knowing what plagiarism is and how to avoid it.

Message from the Administrative Board

To all current and prospective students:

As part of our efforts to combat fraudulent activities perpetrated against the University of Atlanta and its student body, please be advised of the following:

1. The UofA only uses official channels in all communications with students. As such, we will never phone you except in an emergency situation and even then, by prior arrangement. The UofA does not utilize social media of any description to contact its students. Specifically, we do not use media such as Whatsapp, IMO or any other SMS platform to contact students.

2. The Uofa will never resort to calling you to demand payment for your program of study nor would we harass you in any way for any reason

3. The UofA encourages all students to be ware of fraudulent activities perpetrated by certain individuals who are in no way connected with us but who engage in criminal activities in attempts to defraud our students.

4. For your sake, please, do not send money through any means, to anyone that claims to be from the UofA. You should only send money following an official notification and as agreed between you and the UofA for your program.

5. UofA is currently working hard to be fully accredited once again with the relevant authorities. Any calls or communications from any one claiming or soliciting your transfer to a different university for the purposes of accreditation or any other purpose is fraudulent and should not be entertained. If you receive such calls, please, hang up or ask the caller to send an official email. If you do stay with the caller, do so long enough to obtain basic information from them, then, hang up and dial our fraud hotline to report it and verify the authenticity of the call

6. Should you find yourself at the receiving end of any suspicious activity, please, do not become a victim. Instead, hang up and dial the Chamblee Police station or report the matter to a special Crime Hotline at the UofA. The number is 630 800 2139.

Remember, we all have a duty to protect ourselves. Do not become a victim. Do not allow criminal activities to flourish at your expense. The UofA takes all such activities serious and will take steps to prosecute the perpetrators to the fullest extent of the law.

Stay informed. Stay alert. Stay safe.
