Details policies for student academic misconduct and disciplinary procedures. Plagiarism is considered a form of academic misconduct.
Statement of Principles
The university has a responsibility to promote academic honesty and integrity and to develop procedures to deal effectively with instances of academic dishonesty. Students are responsible for:
the honest completion and representation of their work,
for the appropriate citation of sources,
and for the respect of others' academic endeavors.
Students who violate these standards must be confronted and must accept the consequences of their actions.
Besides plagiarism, academic misconduct also includes actions such as cheating on examinations, collaborating with others on course work when it is not permitted, and performing course work under the name of another student, among other actions.
