Student Code of Conduct, Special Procedures for Academic Dishonesty

If a faculty member concludes that a student has committed an act of academic dishonesty, the faculty member may initiate student conduct action through the Campus Associate Dean of Student Services. The faculty member may impose any of the following penalties: require that the student repeat the assignment or the exam; give the student a failing grade for the assignment or exam; or give the student a failing grade for the course.

Should the student believe that s/he has been wrongly or unfairly accused of academic dishonesty, the student shall have the right to pursue the matter though the Course Grade Grievance Procedure.

The Office of the Campus Associate Dean of Student Services shall maintain all records of documented acts of academic dishonesty. Faculty members are encouraged to report all incidents of academic dishonesty to the Campus Associate Dean of Student Services. The Campus Associate Dean of Student Services will determine whether the student has a previous record of academic dishonesty. If so, the student can be referred to the Student Code of Conduct process.

In the event that the determination of the case results in a change in the student’s final grade for the course, and the student has graduated, an academic review of the student’s academic progress record will be conducted to determine if a student’s degree should be subject to revocation.
