ACADEMIC HONESTY:
University policy provides severe penalties for plagiarism,
which is defined as “any activity wherein one person
knowingly resorts to the published or unpublished work of
another in order to represent it as one’s own.” Plagiarism in
the context of this class would occur, for example, when two
individuals hand in identical assignments. The minimum
penalty for plagiarism is a “zero” on the assignment and the
lowering of the final earned course grade by one full letter
grade. Similarly, cheating will not be tolerated. Examples of
cheating include, but are not limited to a) copying, in part or
in whole, from another’s test or examination; b) discussing
answers or ideas relating to answers during a test; c) using
notes, cheat sheets or other devices considered inappropriate
under the prescribed testing condition. The minimum penalty
for cheating is a “zero” on the exam and the lowering of the
final earned course grade by one full letter grade. Repeated
acts of plagiarism or cheating will result in a failing grade or
more severe penalties, such as expulsion from the university.
