class. Instructors may also pursue disciplinary action in accordance with the Student Handbook. Academic dishonesty

on work to be presented, if contrary to the stated rules of the course,
(3) submitting, if contrary
to the rules of the course, work previously submitted in another course,
(4) knowingly and intentionally
assisting another student in any of the above actions, including assistance in an arrangement whereby work, classroom performance,
examination, or other activity is submitted or performed by a person other than the student under whose name the work is submitted
