Typical violations include plagiarism, cheating on examinations and unauthorized collaboration. As soon as possible after the alleged incident, the faculty member should discuss the matter with the student. This discussion should be conducted in a manner which protects the rights and confidentiality of students. If the faculty member believes that academic dishonesty has occurred, the faculty member, in consultation with the department chair, will determine the appropriate academic penalty. Any recommendation for a disciplinary penalty (i.e. suspension, or expulsion) must be reviewed in consultation with the chair. The faculty member and the chair will complete a notice of academic dishonesty form describing the incident and indicating the academic penalty imposed and any recommended disciplinary penalty. The chair will forward the notice of academic dishonesty, which includes a statement of the right to appeal, to the dean of the college, who delivers it either through the student’s official university email address or by certified mail. More information on the Policy on Academic Honesty, a section of the Student Code of Conduct, may be obtained on the Code of Conduct website or by contacting the office of the Dean of Students at 404-413-1515.
