Cheating and Plagiarism

Cheating is committing fraud on a record, report, paper, computer assignment, examination, project, or other course requirement.

Plagiarism is taking someone else's ideas, words, statements, or other work as one's own without proper acknowledgment.

Any student found guilty of cheating or plagiarism may be dropped from a class and/or receive an "F" grade for the test, paper, or report. The instructor of the class has authority to determine the response to the violation. Student(s) involved in incidents of this kind may appeal to the academic dean.
