Student Academic Dishonesty Form


Definition of plagiarism/cheating:

Plagiarism is the act of presenting the ideas and writings of another as one’s own. Cheating is the act of obtaining or attempting to obtain credit for academic work through the use of any dishonest, deceptive, or fraudulent means.

Cheating includes but is not limited to:

  1. Copying, in part or in whole, from another’s test, software, or other evaluation instrument.
  2. Submitting work previously graded in another course unless this has been approved by the course instructor or by departmental/school policy.
  3. Submitting work simultaneously presented in two courses, unless this has been approved by both course instructors or by the department/school policies of both departments/schools.
  4. Using or consulting during an examination sources or materials not authorized by the instructor.
  5. Altering or interfering with grading or grading instructions.
  6. Sitting for an examination by a surrogate, or as a surrogate.
  7. Any other act committed by a student in the course of his or her academic work, which defrauds or misrepresents, including aiding or abetting in any of the actions defined above.

Plagiarism is academically dishonest and makes the offending student liable to penalties up to and including expulsion. Students must make appropriate acknowledgements of the original source where material written or compiled by another is used.
