Defining how to classify the academic integrity violation

 

Two classifications of academic integrity violations are defined by the College of Arts and Sciences and are defined below:

2.1  Class A Violations

Students may be alleged to have committed a Class A violation under the following circumstances:

  • When a student acting alone cheats, falsifies, or plagiarizes an assignment or other graded component of minimal weight to the overall grade of the course.
  • When a student colludes on an assignment or other graded component of minimal weight to the overall grade of the course.

Such violations include, but are not limited to, the acts of dishonesty defined in Section 3. They are to be handled according to the process described in Sections 4 and 5 below.

2.2  Class B Violations

Students may be alleged to have committed a Class B violation under the following circumstances:

  • When they are charged with a violation of the Honesty Policy and already have in their record a previous violation.
  • When a student falsifies, or plagiarizes an assignment or requirement of the class of considerable weight to the overall grade of the course.  
  • When they are alleged to have engaged in collusion in the performance of any substantial assignment or requirement of the class.
  • When they are alleged to have engaged in any other academic misconduct of a particularly serious sort.

Such violations include, but are not limited to, acts of dishonesty defined in Section 3. They are to be handled according to the process described in Sections 4 and 5 below.
