Frequently Asked Questions
What are the violations in the Student Honor Code?
The violations in the Student Honor Code are: Cheating, Plagiarism, Academic Fraud, Complicity, Multiple Submissions, Fabrication, Falsification, and Violation of Dept/College Rules.
What are some of the Honor Code outcomes?
The outcomes for an Honor Code violation vary per case. Some of the Honor Code outcomes are a Zero on the Assignment, the AIP, Lowered Final Course Grade, XF, Probation, and Suspension.
Will a record in the Student Honor Code Office keep my student from getting into medical school, graduate school, etc.?
An Academic misconduct record does not automatically exclude a student from further study, jobs, etc. It does depend on the type of severity of misconduct in which a student is involved. Again, we will only release information about a student’s academic misconduct record as permitted by federal law. If the student authorizes a release of their record, it will be provided to whomever they request. Case records are expunged five years following the date of the student’s graduation.
How do I begin the reporting process?
To begin the reporting process, please contact the Honor Code office to do a prior violation check on the student suspected of academic misconduct.
Can the grade of an XF be removed from a student's transcript?
The "X" can be removed upon completion of the AIP; however, the F will stay on the transcript.
