Lying – falsifying, fabricating, or forging information in either written or spoken presentations
Plagiarism – using the published writings, data, interpretations, or ideas of another without proper documentation
Episodes of academic dishonesty are reported as appropriate 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
Suspension or expulsion
Revocation of a degree
The University reserves the right at any time to revoke a degree which was improperly awarded due to fraud, deceit, or error, and to rescind a degree in the case of a graduate’s egregious misconduct. The University will not revoke any degree without following a fair process, including an opportunity for the graduate to respond to the evidence and to protect his or her interests.
