We take academic misconduct very seriously when it does occur in the course. As instructors, we are bound by University rules when dealing with these sorts of situations. University policy on academic misconduct is linked below.
Uphold and maintain academic and professional honesty and integrity
Misconduct in this couse is not limited to what is contained in the Student Code of Conduct. See additional information below.
What is academic misconduct?
Plagiarism constitutes using others' ideas, words, or images without properly giving credit to the original source. This includes copying written work, code, a friend's paper, etc. If you turn in any work with your name affixed to it, we assume that work is your own and that all sources are indicated and documented in the text, with quotations and/or citations in MLA or APA format.
Some examples of academic misconduct include (but are not limited to): copying a friend’s homework, forgetting to use quotation marks correctly, using an assignment from another class, using an assignment from a previous I101 student, turning in old work (if you are retaking the course), etc. If you have any questions, please contact us ASAP.
What happens in this course?
We will respond to acts of academic misconduct according to University policy concerning plagiarism. Sanctions for plagiarism can include (at minimum) a grade of F for the assignment in question and/or for the course and must include a report to the Dean of Students Office.
We will report any and all acts of plagiarism or cheating. Be sure to use citations correctly and check your work. If you are working with others, be sure that you are turning in your own work.
In short, please do not plagiarize. If you are concerned that you have, please ask one of the Instructors.
In addition to plagiarism, falsley signing in for attendance, assignments, harrassment of students/instructors, etc. are also treated as cases of academic/personal misconduct. All cases will be reported to the University in accordance with the Student Code of Conduct and University guidelines.
