ACADEMIC HONESTY:
Great Basin College considers academic honesty one of its highest values. A
student who obtains academic credit for work that is not the product of his or her
own effort is being dishonest and undermining the academic integrity of the
college. Students are expected to be the sole authors of their work. Use of
another’s ideas must be accompanied by specific citation and reference. In
addition, a learner may not submit the same work for credit in more than one
course. The disciplinary consequences of plagiarism and other forms of academic
dishonesty include non-acceptance of work submitted, a failing grade in the
course, and/or or other disciplinary action as outlined in Great Basin College’s
Student Conduct Policy.
XI.
ACCOMMODATIONS FOR DISABILITIES:
Great Basin College is committed to providing equal educational opportunities to
qualified students with disabilities in accordance with state and federal laws and
regulations, including the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 and Section
504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. A qualified student must furnish current
verification of disability. The Director of Services for Students with Disabilities
(Julie G. Byrnes) will assist qualified students with disabilities in securing the
appropriate and reasonable accommodations, auxiliary aids and services. For
more information or further assistance, please call 775.753.2271.
