Academic Honesty Policy

The essential rules of academic honesty are that every assignment should be the original work of the student who turns it in, and appropriate credit should be given to all sources used. It is the responsibility of each student to adhere to a high code of honor and integrity.

Student, Parent/Guardian, and Teacher Responsibilities:

  • Students are expected to adhere to the principles of academic honesty in completing all tests, quizzes, reports, assignments, discussions, and other academic work represented as their own.

  • Parents/guardians are expected to support the spirit and intent of this agreement by reviewing the principles of academic honesty with their student and encouraging the student to practice them.

  • Teachers are expected to promote the academic honesty policy through ongoing reference to and application of the principles which safeguard the integrity of our program, to make clear to students the fact that the principles of academic honesty will be strictly enforced, and to act on and enforce appropriate consequences when a student is found to have violated the academic honesty policy.

Academic dishonesty is evidenced by not following testing procedures, cheating or plagiarizing and involves an attempt by a student to show possession of knowledge and skills he/she does not possess. Providing unauthorized information to another student, such as test, essay, or assignment answers, is also a violation of academic honesty.

Plagiarism or violations of the academic honest policy include:

  1. Using or having had access to unauthorized information on a test

  2. Stealing passages or ideas from any source and using them in one's own writing assignments without proper documentation.

  3. Collaborating with another student on an individual assignment.

  4. Recording/copying test questions or answers to pass to other students and/or receiving copied questions or answers.

  5. Providing or receiving answers from individual assignments or essays

  6. Discussing test questions or answers with another student without the express permission of the instructor.

  7. Altering or misusing documents

  8. Impersonating, misrepresenting, or knowingly providing false information as to one's identity

  9. Use of an online language translator

  10. Violation of testing procedures

Should plagiarism or violation of the academic honesty policy occur, the student will receive no credit for the assignment and may be referred to the administration for disciplinary action. In addition, a student involved in an instance of academic dishonesty should be aware of the ramifications regarding teacher recommendations and college admissions. The student remains responsible for the academic honesty of work submitted and should consult with the course instructor if anything about these guidelines is unclear.
