Academic Integrity Policy

The Art of Education University believes academic integrity is essential to maintain the validity of all grades earned and to protect the integrity of the university, students, and graduates. Therefore, AOEU adheres to the highest standards when it comes to student scholarly work.

All work submitted and/or presented by students must be original and properly cite all outside inspiration. Original cited work includes, but is not limited to, individual and group assignments in written, oral, and electronic forms and any artistic creations.


Plagiarism is a major form of dishonesty. Examples of plagiarism include, but are not limited to:

  • Purchasing and/or deliberately taking someone else’s work (written, artistic, or otherwise) and submitting it as one’s own.
  • Incorrectly citing resources or creating fictitious resources.
  • Using a direct quote without including quotation marks and/or appropriate citation.
  • Submitting direct quotes as paraphrased text.
  • Paraphrasing text without using the appropriate citation.
  • Taking an assignment (or substantially similar assignment) completed for one course/program and submitting it for another AOEU course/program without written approval from the instructor. This includes work from withdrawn and incomplete courses.

Violations, Academic Probation, and Dismissal

AOEU follows the Academic Integrity Policy to determine the probation and dismissal of students. 

Any work in violation of the Academic Integrity Policy will result in grade deductions and/or dismissal. Violations are cumulative for the duration of the student’s tenure at the university.

  • On the student’s first offense, the instructor has the option to allow resubmission of the assignment for half credit.
  • The second violation will result in zero credit (grade entered as zero) for the assignment without the option of resubmission.
  • Any additional violations will lead to a failing grade, dismissal from the course(s) enrolled, and a refund according to the Transfer, Withdrawal, and Tuition Reimbursement Policy.
  • Students who already have an academic integrity violation on record from a previous course and incur additional course infraction(s) are subject to penalties, including failure of the assignment, failure of the course, and/or university dismissal. The Chief Academic Officer will review all such cases and make a final decision within 10 calendar days. Students in this situation will have the right to submit further documentation or explanation on their behalf.

Students should consult their instructor with questions regarding the policy.

The Art of Education University reserves the right to terminate enrollment at any time for infractions detailed in the Academic Probation and Dismissal Policy. Terminated students will be refunded per the Tuition Reimbursement Policy and earn a final grade per the Academic Probation and Dismissal Policy.
