Cheating or plagiarism is dishonest, undermines the necessary trust upon
which relations between students and faculty are based, and is unacceptable
conduct. Students who engage in cheating or plagiarism will be subject to
academic sanctions, including a lowered or failing grade in a course; and the
possibility of an additional administrative sanction, including probation,
suspension, or expulsion.
