Reporting Academic Authenticity Violations

WGU is committed to upholding academic authenticity of all work submitted by students. As stated in the Academic Authenticity (opens new window) policy, “All assessments and projects submitted by you will be evaluated for compliance.” The ethical completion of coursework is a core aspect of the WGU experience.

As a WGU student, your commitment to academic authenticity is critical. In the event you become aware of potential violations to the Academic Authenticity Policy (opens new window), you are encouraged to report this so it can be investigated.

Student support specialists are available by phone to discuss any concerns of this nature. Be prepared to provide as much detail as possible so that WGU staff can fully investigate. When speaking with a Student Support specialist (opens new window) by phone you may elect to submit your concern anonymously. You must notify the representative of your desire to remain anonymous. You can also contact Student Services (opens new window) via email. 

Please know that all reports of potential violations to the Academic Authenticity Policy will be reviewed and a full investigation will be conducted. Due to the private nature of student academic records, it may not always be possible for you to receive a detailed response explaining how a concern was resolved. Rest assured that WGU staff will take all appropriate actions based on the details of each reported concern.
