The most common violation of academic integrity is plagiarism, which the Provost has defined as:
1. Copying words and presenting them as your own writing.
2. Copying words (even if you give the source) without indicating that they are a direct quotation by enclosing them in quotation marks.
3. Copying words and then changing them slightly or substituting synonyms (even if you give the source).
4. Presenting someone else's ideas as your own, even if you change the wording.
It is also a violation of academic integrity to submit the same work for more than one course, unless you have the express permission of both instructors.
Violations of academic integrity carry penalties up to and including expulsion from the university.
Important note regarding contestation of misconduct: In the event of plagiarism, the instructor may charge the student with either an admonition or an academic misconduct charge. Any student who receives an admonition can contest it. To do so, the student must contact the Student Conduct Office within 15 regular class days after receiving the admonition. Any student who receives the charge can deny the charge through an appeals process.
