Academic Integrity:

At a Christian liberal arts university committed to the pursuit of    truth and understanding, any act of academic dishonesty is especially    distressing and cannot be tolerated. In general, academic dishonesty    involves the abuse and misuse of information or people to gain an    undeserved academic advantage or evaluation. The common forms of    academic dishonesty include:

  • Cheating – using deception in the taking of tests or the    preparation of written work, using unauthorized materials, copying    another person’s work with or without consent, or assisting another in    such activities.
  • Lying – falsifying, fabricating, or forging information in either written, spoken, or video presentations.
  • Plagiarism — Using the published writings, data, interpretations, or ideas of another without proper documentation.

Episodes of academic dishonesty are reported 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, or charges   against the student with the    appropriate disciplinary body.
