Scholastic Honesty

Effective: 01/19/2021

It is assumed that all students are enrolled in class to learn; therefore, cheating is not an acceptable practice. Dishonesty of any type in a course, including cheating on examinations or plagiarizing materials, can result in a grade of “F” and may be cause for suspension and/or withdrawal from the school. Plagiarism includes passing off or attempting to pass off the ideas or writing of another person as one’s own. Plagiarism also includes using personal papers submitted for a prior class, a repeated class, or even work submitted at a different institution.

Students are prohibited from operating any type of audio or video recording device in a classroom, laboratory, or clinical setting without prior expressed permission from the Campus President or Academic Dean. Prohibited items include, but are not limited to: video cameras, telephones with audio or video recording capability, computers, electronic tablets, or watches with audio or video recording capability. This is not an all-inclusive list. Violations of this policy may lead to disciplinary actions up to and including dismissal from school.
