If You Are Summoned

If you receive a summons to a Primary Hearing, you will naturally be anxious. But that summons does not mean you have already been found guilty. To put your mind at ease, we recommend reading these Guidelines for Students before speaking to your teammates or the professor. They describe what to expect at the hearing.

It’s Never Too Late

Honesty is valued in this course, even if it comes a little late. As the Code of Academic Integrity states (emphasis added):

Absolute integrity is expected of every Cornell student in all academic undertakings. Integrity entails a firm adherence to a set of values, and the values most essential to an academic community are grounded on the concept of honesty with respect to the intellectual efforts of oneself and others.

If you know you committed a violation, it is always better to admit it to the professor before the violation is detected. If it’s detected and you are summoned for a Primary Hearing, it’s better to be honest and admit it up front.

It’s never too early. If you are ever unsure about what is permissible and what is not, please ask. It is always better to ask first, rather than be sorry later.
