Academic Dishonesty

In the academic community, the high value placed on truth implies a corresponding intolerance of scholastic dishonesty. Written or other work that a student submits must be the product of the student's own efforts. Plagiarism, cheating and other forms of academic dishonesty, including dishonesty involving computer technology, are prohibited.

In cases involving academic dishonesty, the determination of the grade shall be left solely to the discretion of the instructor. In a case where the instructor judges a student guilty of academic dishonesty, the instructor is encouraged to report the incident of dishonesty to the director of the Office of Student Conduct in order to discern potential patterns of egregious dishonesty. For a full copy of the Policy on Academic Integrity, see Appendix II in this Bulletin.
