Academic Honesty

Students’ rights are accompanied by certain duties and responsibilities that must be respected by them.

Academic honesty plays an essential part in maintaining the integrity of the University.

Students are expected to recognize and uphold high standards of intellectual and academic integrity.

As a basic standard of conduct in academic matters, Khazar University assumes that students submit for credit only the products of their own efforts. All dishonest work is rejected.

The ideal is that students refrain from any form of dishonorable conduct in the course of their academic work.

No communication is permitted between students during examinations.

For violation of the examination rules or dishonesty in an examination, the student will be subject to disciplinary action.

Any of the following kinds of infringement is strictly forbidden and will, if proven, be penalized:

plagiarism, cheating, unauthorized collaboration, falsification, and multiple submissions.

Following the standards of academic conduct, rights and responsibilities are essential for all the members of the Khazar academic community, including faculty.

Being strict, objective, and honest during the examinations is one of the most important faculty responsibilities.

Given difficulties related to the transition from Communism and from a centralized economic system to a democratic society and free market economy, the Khazar community is always sensitive with regards to academic honesty.

The University policy is to retain ownership and any rights to discoveries, innovations, and inventions, including computer software made by students, faculty, and staff with the use of University facilities.
