Students are expected to be honest in all academic work. A student’s name on any academic exercise shall be regarded as assurance that the work is the result of the student’s own thought and study. Offenses involving academic dishonesty include but are not limited to the following:
1. Cheating on quizzes or examinations. This occurs when any student is found using or attempting to use any book, paper, or any other means of assistance during a quiz or exam.
2. Plagiarism. This is the unacknowledged use of another’s work, words, or ideas and representing them as your own.
3. Collusion. This occurs when students willfully give or receive unauthorized or unacknowledged assistance on any assignment. This may include the reproduction and/or dissemination of test materials. Both parties to the collusion are considered responsible.
If it has been determined that academic dishonesty has occurred, a faculty board will determine the appropriate punishment.  However, in most cases, the student should expect to be dismissed from college for one year.
