The Academic Misconduct Code describes academic misconduct as including cheating, plagiarism, fabrication, fraud, destruction, bribery or intimidation; assisting others in any act proscribed by this Code; or attempting to engage in such acts.
It is the responsibility of each faculty member and each student to be familiar with the definition, policies, and procedures concerning academic misconduct as cited in the Academic Misconduct Code.
The definitions of each type of academic misconduct as well as reporting, investigation, potential disciplinary actions (i.e. censure, limited notation suspension, permanent notation suspension, expulsion), and the appeals process are detailed in the Academic Misconduct Code found in the Faculty Handbook. (Appendix C; 12-11)
