Fabrication
- intentional and/or unauthorized falsification or
invention of any information or the source of any information in
an academic exercise.
Collusion
- facilitating academic dishonesty and/or intentionally
or knowingly helping or attempting to help another to commit an
act of academic dishonesty.
Plagiarism
- Plagiarism and cheating are serious offenses and
violations of academic honesty. Students found guilty of these
offenses can expect serious consequences. Plagiarism, simply
stated, is not giving credit where credit is due. It is the act of
directly quoting, paraphrasing or copying ideas without citing
the source of that quote, paraphrase, or idea. Plagiarism and
cheating will not be tolerated. Violations of academic honesty
will be documented and may result in failure of the class or
disciplinary probation. When students are asked to submit
individual work, they are expected to do so. When students are
assigned to work together on a project, it is not considered a
breach of academic honesty for them to gain from each other’s
experience and to share ideas. The concept of academic honesty
is designed to assure a uniform standard against which to
evaluate all students and to prevent cheating. Students are
expected to report infractions to their instructors.
Sanctions which may be recommended or imposed for a
violation of the Academic Honesty policy are listed here in order
of their severity. Please note, the sanctions imposed may not
necessarily follow in this order, depending on the severity of the
violation.
Written Warning:
Official warning issued by the office of the
Vice President of Instruction and Student Affairs with input from
the student’s instructors.
Disciplinary Probation:
Official probationary status that
becomes a permanent part of the student’s academic record.
Probationary length and terms are set by the Instructional
Advisory Council and/or the Student Services Administrative
Council depending on the severity of the violation.
Disciplinary Suspension:
Failure to comply with the terms
of probation results in immediate suspension from college
for a specific length of time (e.g., semester or academic year)
which may include a petition for readmission following the
suspension period subject to an additional period of probation.
Probationary length and terms are set by the Instructional
Advisory Council and/or the Student Services Administrative
Council depending on the severity of the violation. A petition for
re-admission following the suspension period will be reviewed
and approved/denied by the committee.
A Disciplinary Suspension will become part of the student’s
permanent academic record.
Expulsion:
Indefinite removal from college. Any request for
re-enrollment must be submitted in writing to the committee in
care of the Office of Vice President of Instruction and Student
Affairs.
The sanctions imposed for a violation of the Academic
Honesty policy are independent of, and in addition to, any
adverse academic evaluation which results from the student’s
conduct. The course instructor is responsible for academic
evaluation of a student’s work and shall make that evaluation
without regard to any disciplinary action which may or may not
be taken against a student who violates the Academic Honesty
policy.
Academic Probation:
Should your cumulative GPA fall below
2.0 you will be placed on academic probation for the following
semester. You may return to good standing by achieving a
cumulative 2.0 GPA.
If you are on probation and earn a GPA of 2.0 or higher during
the next semester after being placed on probation, but if your
cumulative GPA is still below 2.0, you will remain on probation;
you will be dismissed at the end of any probationary semester in
which you obtain a cumulative GPA of less than 2.0. Failure to
meet probationary terms will result in suspension for one
semester. At the end of one semester, you may submit a formal
Petition for Re-admission form to seek re-admittance. Petition
forms and instructions are available online. Re-admittance will
be granted only if you can demonstrate that the academic
impediments have been remediated. All readmissions will be
granted on a probationary basis only, based upon space
availability.
Any student on academic probation will not be eligible for
federal financial aid.
Academic Suspension:
A student who has been suspended due
to unsatisfactory progress may appeal the decision within five
working days from the time of the action. Appeal in writing to
the appropriate division manager and explain any mitigating
circumstances that you feel caused your inability to meet the
minimum standards. The division manager will review and
respond to the appeal within five working days of the receipt of
the appeal. Academic suspension will be effective for a
minimum of one semester, fall or spring. Students will be
dropped from all future registered courses. Students must
petition for re-enrollment using the form from the Registrar’s
Office. Students suspended for violation of the Academic
Honesty policy will receive an “F” in any class in which the
cheating occurred whether or not the cheating takes place prior
to mid-semester.
Change of Program:
To change a program, a currently enrolled
student must complete the Intent to Change or Add Program
Form. The petition form is available online. Once all required
signatures are gathered the student must return the petition to the
Registrar’s Office.
If a student is on probation and changes to another program,
the probation status is transferred to the new program. Students
entering a new program after academic dismissal enter on
academic probation.
