Cheating And Plagiarism


Academic dishonesty as defined in the SEARK Student Conduct Policies, includes, but is not limited to: 1. Submitting the programs/program documentation of another as one's own work, 2. Obtaining or attempting to obtain unauthorized access to information stored in electronic form, and, 3. Submitting false results of a program's output for a class assignment or falsifying the results from a program execution for the purpose of obtaining a passing grade.

Cheating in any form (including using unauthorized materials, information, or study aid in any academic exercise, plagiarism, falsification of records, unauthorized possession of examinations; any and all other actions that may improperly affect the evaluation of a student's academic performance or achievement; and the assistance of others in any such act) is forbidden. An instructor who has proof that a student is guilty of cheating may take appropriate action up to and including assigning the student a grade of F for the course and having the student suspended from the class. A description of the incident and the action taken will be reported to the Vice President for Student Affairs. If contested, this matter will be referred to the Student Disciplinary Committee.
