Students are required to adhere to the college's Academic Honesty Guidelines. Students are expected to avoid any type of dishonesty including, but not limited to the following:
- Plagiarism (copying someone else's sentences or phrases, using another author's ideas without acknowledgement of the source, re-writing a research paper that incorporates significant material from a paper written by another person, submitting a research paper borrowed from another student or commercial use).
- Duplication of assignments.
- Aiding in dishonesty.
- When an instructor is confronted with evidence of academic dishonesty s/he will take appropriate action against the student. This action may include: reassignment of the paper, exam, or project; assignment of a failing grade; or recommendation to the Superintendent/President for dismissal from the course.
Specific information on academic honesty may be obtained in the Student Conduct Guidelines available from the Office of the Dean of Student Services.
