Sanctions for Academic Integrity Violations

Sanctions or penalties for violations of academic integrity are imposed by the faculty member teaching the course upon discovery of a violation. All cases of academic dishonesty are filed with the Student Judiciary Officer, who maintains a record of academic integrity violations.

The occurrence of a second or third offense of academic dishonesty may involve the imposition of a disciplinary sanction in addition to the academic sanction imposed by the instructor. Sanctions for violations of academic integrity include, but are not limited to, the following:

•    Failure of an exam

•    A grade of F on an essay or research paper

•    Failure of a course project

•    Failure of the course

•    Suspension from the College

•    Dismissal from the College
