  • The instructor will meet with the student and reach a decision concerning the matter. In the event that a sanction beyond a warning is required, the Dean of Student Affairs will be informed.
  • In a repeated or particularly serious case, or if the student disputes the decision of the instructor, the Dean of Student Affairs will be informed. If necessary, the Dean will meet with the student and the instructor. The Dean will make the final decision in the case, including the assignment of a penalty, if any. If the decision is that the student is guilty of academic dishonesty, the Dean will inform the student in writing, and send a copy of the letter to the instructor and to the registrar. The student may appeal the decision to the Student Academic Appeals Committee.
  • The normal penalty for a first offence is a zero grade in the component of the course in which the dishonesty occurred. However, in a case of particular seriousness, or in the case of a repeated offence, penalties may include a zero grade in the course, suspension of one semester or longer, or expulsion from the university.
  • A student who is dismissed from the University for a certain time for academic disciplinary reasons may in the last semester before graduation petition the Student Academic Appeals Committee in writing to have the notation "Suspended for Academic Disciplinary Reasons" removed from his or her transcript. The decision to remove would be based primarily on the academic performance of the student upon his or her return to the University; it would not be decided automatically.
