The University of South Carolina Upstate is an academic community preserved through the mutual respect and trust of the individuals who learn, teach and work within it. Inherent in the Code of Student Conduct is the belief in each individual’s honesty, self-discipline and sense of responsibility.
Code of Academic Integrity

For details of the honor code, procedures for handling complaints, and penalties for violations, consult the USC Upstate Student Handbook.
Code of Student Behavior

Violations are handled in the same manner as violations of the Academic Integrity Code. Consult the USC Upstate Student Handbook for details.
