ACADEMIC DISHONESTY: A paper/assignment that can be proven to have been plagiarized will receive an automatic zero (whether its worth is 10% or 50% of the grade). The second offense will lead to an automatic F for the entire course.
All students are expected to engage in all academic pursuits in a manner that is above reproach. Students are expected to maintain honesty and integrity in the academic experiences both in and out of the classroom. Any student found guilty of dishonesty in any phase of academic work will be subject to disciplinary action. The University and its official representatives may initiate disciplinary proceedings against a student accused of any form of academic dishonesty including but not limited to, cheating on an examination or other academic work which is to be submitted, plagiarism, collusion and the abuse of resource materials.
