Academic Dishonesty

Academic Dishonesty *

Academic dishonesty will not be tolerated. Any student who commits academic dishonesty will receive a grade of zero for the assignment or test. A second instance of cheating will culminate in a student being given an F or failure for the class. Instructors may also pursue disciplinary action in accordance with the Student Handbook. Academic dishonesty includes the following actions, as well as other similar conduct aimed at making false representation with respect to the student’s academic performance:

(1)   cheating on an exam,

(2)   collaborating with others 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 or performed,

(5)   plagiarism. Plagiarism is the act of presenting ideas, words, or organization of a 

      source, published or not, as if they were one’s own. All quoted material must be in

      quotation marks, and all paraphrases, quotations, significant ideas, and organization

      must be acknowledged by some form of documentation acceptable to the instructor

      for the course.

      Plagiarism also includes the practice of employing or allowing another person to alter 

      or revise the work that a student submits as the student’s own. Students may discuss

      assignments among themselves or with an instructor or tutor, but when the actual

      material is completed, it must be done by the student and the student alone. The use 

      of the term “material” refers to work in any form including written, oral, and

      electronic.

      All academic work, written o r otherwise, submitted by a student to an instructor or 

      other academic supervisor is expected to be the result of the student’s own thought, 

      research, or self expression.

      In any case in which a student feels unsure about a question of plagiarism involving

      the student’s work, the student must consult the instructor before submitting the work.

*   See the Student Handbook for specifics.
