Any student who engages in any form of academic dishonesty may be subject to discipline. Common instances of academic dishonesty include (but are not limited to): cheating; falsification; plagiarism; facilitating, aiding or abetting others in academic dishonesty; collusion; or resubmitting work previously submitted for another course without instructor permission. Academic dishonesty may be subject to both academic sanctions and/or conduct sanctions.
Instructors and students are responsible for maintaining academic standards and integrity in classes. Academic consequences for academic dishonesty may be imposed by the course instructor. Such consequences may include but cannot exceed a grade of “F” in the course.
Students may learn more about academic integrity and how to avoid academic dishonesty in the Student Handbook at lowercolumbia.edu/publications/student-handbook.
You have the right to file an academic grievance if you believe your final course grade was assigned by an application of an improper, arbitrary, or capricious academic evaluation. Please see the Student Academic Grievance Procedure at lowercolumbia.edu/publications/student-handbook/student-academic-grievance-procedure in the Student Handbook for details.
