Academic Standards Policy

Enrollment in a class may be terminated due to unsatisfactory student conduct, undue disrespect towards an instructor or administrator, or academic dishonesty. Each student is responsible for maintaining standards of academic performance established for each course in which he or she is enrolled.

If you violate the Standard of Student Conduct for Dishonesty, your instructor will complete a Faculty Disciplinary Form indicating the code of conduct that was violated, explaining the facts and details of the charge, and noting the disciplinary action taken. This form will be signed by both you and your instructor and will be filed with the Dean of Student Services for reference in case of repeat violations.

Cheating can result in disciplinary action such as failing grade on a test(s) or assignment(s), disciplinary probation, suspension or termination of financial aid, and even permanent expulsion.

Cheating includes talking during a test regardless of the reason, glancing at another student's paper or computer screen during a test, copying another student's work in any form, submitting another student's work as your own, leaving a classroom with a copy of a test answers, or in any way taking any action might be construed as academic dishonesty.
