Academic dishonesty consists of many forms of unethical academic conduct, including, but not limited to, cheating, fabrication, plagiarism and facilitating academic dishonesty.
1. "Cheating" means intentionally using or attempting to use unauthorized materials, information or study aids, as well as unauthorized devices such as cell phones and other technology.
2. "Fabrication" means intentional falsification or invention of any information or citation.
3. "Plagiarism" means intentionally or knowingly representing the words or ideas of another as one's own.
4. Other forms of academic dishonesty include:
a. Submitting work to more than one instructor for credit without disclosure and approval.
b. Knowingly violating the terms of any academic sanction imposed for an earlier violation of Policy 3010.
Acts of academic dishonesty are regarded as serious offenses. If academic dishonesty is discovered or believed to have occurred, each incident will be handled on an individual basis as deemed appropriate. Care will be taken that students’ rights are not violated and that appropriate punitive measures are instituted only in cases where documentation of the offense(s) exist.
