Student Honor Creed
“As an MSU Student, I pledge not to lie, cheat, steal, or help anyone else do so.”
As students at MSU, we recognize that any great society must be composed of empowered, responsible citizens. We also recognize universities play an important role in helping mold these responsible citizens. We believe students themselves play an important part in developing responsible citizenship by maintaining a community where integrity and honorable character are the norm, not the exception.
Thus, We, the Students of Midwestern State University, resolve to uphold the honor of the University by affirming our commitment to complete academic honesty. We resolve not only to be honest but also to hold our peers accountable for complete honesty in all university matters.
We consider it dishonest to ask for, give, or receive help in examinations or quizzes, to use any unauthorized material in examinations, or to present, as one’s own, work or ideas which are not entirely one’s own. We recognize that any instructor has the right to expect that all student work is honest, original work. We accept and acknowledge that responsibility for lying, cheating, stealing, plagiarism, and other forms of academic dishonesty fundamentally rests within each individual student.
We expect of ourselves academic integrity, personal professionalism, and ethical character. We appreciate steps taken by University officials to protect the honor of the University against any who would disgrace the MSU student body by violating the spirit of this creed.
Written and adopted by the 2002-2003 MSU Student Senate.

Copying of materials using a previous student’s work, notebook, etc. will not be tolerated. Students who miss class will need to get notes from other students. HOWEVER, IT IS EXPECTED THAT THIS WORK WILL BE REDONE IN THEIR OWN WORDS. Students using computers, word processors, etc. may not share discs or other materials between each other. To do so will be considered the same as copying of materials. In all cases students who allow for the copying of materials will be treated just like the student who does the copying.
