Committee on Academic Misconduct

The Committee on Academic Misconduct (COAM) is charged with maintaining the academic integrity of The Ohio State University by establishing procedures for and investigating all reported cases of alleged academic misconduct by students. 

In those instances where a student is found to have violated the university's Code of Student Conduct, the Committee determines a suitable disciplinary sanction.
