Academic Integrity:

At a Christian liberal arts university committed to the pursuit of  truth and understanding, any act of academic dishonesty is especially  distressing and cannot be tolerated. In general, academic dishonesty  involves the abuse and misuse of information or people to gain an  undeserved academic advantage or evaluation. The common forms of  academic dishonesty include:

  • Cheating – using deception in the taking of tests or the  preparation of written work, using unauthorized materials, copying  another person’s work with or without consent, or assisting another in  such activities.
  • Lying – falsifying, fabricating, or forging information in either written, spoken, or video presentations.
  • Plagiarism — Using the published writings, data, interpretations, or ideas of another without proper documentation.

Episodes of academic dishonesty are reported to the Vice President  for Academic Affairs. The potential penalty for   academic dishonesty  includes a failing grade on a particular assignment, a failing grade for  the entire course, or charges   against the student with the  appropriate disciplinary body.
