3341-3-24 Academic Honesty
All University Units
Office of the Provost
(A) Policy Statement and Purpose
This policy explains violations of Academic Honesty, the rights and responsibilities of students, the adjudication process including appeals, and the penalties to a student found guilty of an academic honesty violation.
Students are expected to maintain the highest level of integrity in their academic work. From time to time, however, issues such as cheating, fabrication, or plagiarism in an academic exercise arise. The original jurisdiction and penalty both vary depending on the offense and when it is discovered. Also, there are specific requirements for record-keeping and for notification of the student and academic dean. The official policy is included in the Faculty Handbook (Academic Charter) http://www.bgsu.edu/content/dam/BGSU/catalog/academichonesty/official-policy.pdf . The policy is also available in the Student Handbook (Codes of Conduct).
