Academic Integrity is another way of describing honesty. Students must understand that cheating in any form is unacceptable, whether copying another student's work, copying information from the internet or another source, bringing answers into a test, or giving answers to another student. Students who cheat will be subject to the Academic Integrity Policy.
If a faculty member discovers that a student has committed an academic integrity violation that warrants a sanction beyond a verbal warning, the following process will be followed:
A. FIRST VIOLATION: The faculty member will discuss the situation with the student, explaining the nature of the violation, and the nature of the sanction, or sanctions, to be applied as per the course policy. The faculty member will also discuss the potential consequences of further violations. This discussion should be documented. If the faculty member imposes a sanction as per course policy the incident MUST be reported to the Coordinator of Academic Advising via the early warning system. The report must include the details of the offense, the sanction given, failure of the assignment, etc., and the nature of supporting evidence, hard copies of which must be forwarded to the Coordinator of Academic Advising when possible.
