According to the student standard of conduct;
first source. derived

Students in the APS are taught the following
about communication:

There is no more fundamental ethical value than honesty. Honesty is associated with people of honor, and we admire and rely on those who are honest.

Honesty in communications is expressing the truth as best we know it; and not conveying it in a way likely to mislead or deceive.

Truthfulness is presenting the facts to the best of our knowledge.

Sincerity is genuineness, being without trickery or duplicity. It precludes all acts, including half-truths, out-of-context statements, and even silence, that are intended to create beliefs or leave impressions that are untrue or misleading.

In relationships involving legitimate expectations of trust, honesty may also require candor, forthrightness and frankness, imposing the obligation to volunteer information that another person needs to know.

Simply refraining from deception is not enough.
