Academic Integrity

A detailed statement of what constitutes academic honesty and plagiarism is included in every course. By registering for a course, students agree to abide by this statement. Academic dishonesty will result in disciplinary action and possible dismissal from the University.

The University is committed to helping students understand the seriousness of plagiarism, which is defined as the use of the work and ideas of others without proper documentation. Students who submit course materials or examination responses that are found to be plagiarized will receive an F on the plagiarized assignment, may receive a grade of ZF (Academic Integrity Violation) for the course, and may face dismissal from the University.
