Academic Dishonesty & Plagiarism
The University System supports and promotes academic honesty and personal integrity. Cheating can take the following forms:
-Submitting another person’s work
-Letting someone else use one’s work as a gradable class exercise
-Writing a paper for someone else
-Working in a group effort without faculty consent
-Buying a paper from a research service of any type (i.e., mail, in person, or via internet);
-Submitting the same work for credit without approval (e.g., submitting the same assignment twice for different courses)
-Consulting source materials or other students during an exam without authorization
-Getting outside help or giving outside help without a teacher’s expressed permission
-Adjusting dates or other information on forms or emails once the original has been submitted.
Any form of academic dishonesty has no place in higher education. The University System does not tolerate dishonest efforts by its students. Students who are guilty of academic dishonesty can expect to be penalized. Any student who knowingly assists another student in dishonest behavior is equally responsible. An additional violation of the standards of academic honesty within a course may result in dismissal from the University System. Any graduate student found to have plagiarized during a Comprehensive Examination will receive a FAIL grade for the exam and will not be allowed to retake it. The student will no longer be considered a degree candidate.
