About AI Usage in CHDS Applications
The NPS Academic Honor Code holds that “unless otherwise stated by the instructor or advisor, all work submitted in fulfillment of graduation requirements will be the student’s own.” In keeping with this policy, it is not acceptable to submit as one’s own work any text, code, image, or multimedia output by generative AI tools. If any text, code, image, or multimedia output from generative AI tools is included in one’s work, it must be marked and attributed. No acknowledgement is needed for uses of generative Al to support (but not produce) one’s final product, much as one might use search engines, library databases, grammar checkers, online dictionaries and thesauruses, or task planners.
