The College places a high value on academic honesty. It is expected and required in all settings, and in all assignments and assessments that students complete. Students are expected to demonstrate academic integrity in all academic work.

It is a student’s responsibility to know and follow the rules and expectations around academic integrity. To ensure that students understand their responsibilities, we recommend they review the Academic Integrity Policy (F1004) and contact campus resources if they have any questions.
