Responsibilities and Integrity
Student Participation in University-Sponsored Activities
The academic calendar, published in the Undergraduate
Class Schedule, lists various dates that students must follow.
Permission for a student to withdraw from a course after the deadline
may be granted only by the Arts and Sciences Committee on Academic
Standing and Appeals or the Engineering and Applied Sciences Committee
on Academic Standing. The same is true of withdrawals that will result
in an academic under-load. A note from the instructor is not sufficient
to secure a withdrawal from a course without regard to deadlines and
Exceptions to University and College Graduation Requirements:
individual faculty members nor departments may grant waivers or
substitutions for general education requirements or any other
College-wide or University-wide requirements. Students should be
directed to Undergraduate Academic Affairs or the CEAS Undergraduate
Student Office for information about the process for requesting an
Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA):
There are times when
issues involving students arise that require knowledge about access to
student records and other information. Please refer to the following
campus website for guidance with laws regulating confidentiality of
student records and dissemination of other student personal and academic
Americans with Disabilities Act:
If you have a physical,
psychological, medical or learning disability that may impact your
course work, please contact Disability Support Services, ECC
(Educational Communications Center) Building, Room 128, (631) 632-6748.
They will determine with you what accommodations, if any, are necessary
and appropriate. All information and documentation is confidential.
Each student must pursue his or her academic goals
honestly and be personally accountable for all submitted work.
Representing another person's work as your own is always wrong. Faculty
are required to report any suspected instances of academic dishonesty to
the Academic Judiciary. Faculty in the Health Sciences Center (School of
Health Technology and Management, Nursing, Social Welfare, Dental
Medicine) and School of Medicine are required to follow their
school-specific procedures. For more comprehensive information on
academic integrity, including categories of academic dishonesty, please
refer to the academic judiciary website at
Critical Incident Management:
Stony Brook University expects students
to respect the rights, privileges, and property of other people. Faculty
are required to report to the Office of Judicial Affairs any disruptive
behavior that interrupts their ability to teach, compromises the safety
of the learning environment, or inhibits students'
ability to learn. Faculty in the HSC Schools and the School of Medicine
are required to follow their school-specific procedures.
Further information about most academic matters can be found in the
Undergraduate Bulletin, the Undergraduate Class Schedule, and the
Faculty-Employee Handbook. If you have any questions, please contact
Donna Di Donato in the Office of Undergraduate Academic Affairs (2-7080).
