Academic Integrity Complaint
Plagiarism, cheating, and other forms of academic dishonesty are prohibited. Students
guilty of academic misconduct, either directly or indirectly, through participation
or assistance, are immediately responsible to the instructor of the class in addition
to other possible disciplinary sanctions which may be imposed through the regular
institutional disciplinary procedures.
An instructor who believes a student has committed an act of academic misconduct shall notify the student in writing of the basis for the belief and allow the student five (5) business days to respond to the allegation. The student shall respond to the allegation by scheduling a meeting with the instructor to discuss the matter. After meeting with the student to review the alleged misconduct, the instructor has two options: (a) they may make a decision regarding appropriate action, or (b) they may refer the matter to the Academic Integrity Committee.
