Academic Integrity Violation Process

When a faculty member observes a violation of the Code of Academic Integrity or has evidence to suspect that a violation has occurred, the faculty member initiates the process to determine the extent of the violation and any penalties that may result. The faculty member must act on potential violations as soon as possible but no longer than five college days following the discovery of evidence of a violation or immediately before/after the next class period where the student is present. It is expected that students will complete their entire academic career with zero purposeful violations of Academic Integrity. Thus, any purposeful violation is seen as significant.
