Any student found guilty of dishonesty in academic work shall be subject to disciplinary action. These acts include, but are not restricted to:
In cases of accused academic dishonesty, the instructor shall attempt to discuss the matter with the student. If deemed necessary by either the instructor or the student, the matter may be brought to the attention of the following in succession: the instructor's department chairperson, the student's major advisor, the dean of the college in which the student is enrolled, and the Office of the Senior Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs and Student Life.
In cases where guilt is established or admitted, the instructor may take action as severe as giving the offending student a failing grade in the assignment or course or expelling the student from the class. The student has the right to appeal a failing grade through the grade appeal procedure. Further University disciplinary action, such as disciplinary probation, suspension, or expulsion from the University, may be recommended by the instructor through a written request to the Office of the Senior Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs and Student Life.
Graduate student policies may differ. See the Graduate Catalog.
