Formal Resolution

Any instructor or student may choose to utilize the office of the dean to create a formal resolution of the alleged infraction of the Academic Honesty Policy.

If an instructor or proctor observes a student violating the Academic Honesty Policy, or suspects a violation has occurred, he or she will discuss the infraction with the student. If the instructor determines that a formal resolution is required, he or she will inform the dean and, together, they will determine an appropriate sanction for the violation. The instructor will write an account of the incident and the resolution for his or her own file and will send copies to the student and the dean. If a student has committed more than one act of academic dishonesty, the major teacher will be notified.

If a student is found to have violated the Academic Honesty Policy and feels that the decision or the sanctions are inappropriate, he or she has the right to initiate the appeals process.
