Informal Resolution

If an instructor or proctor observes an act of academic dishonesty, or if an instructor or proctor believes that a student has engaged in an academically dishonest act outside of the classroom, he or she may confront the student in question and require the student's attendance at a meeting to discuss the incident.

In the case of academic dishonesty, the instructor may choose to resolve the issue by failing the student on that particular assignment, exam, or essay. It is recommended that the instructor make a note of the incident and its resolution for his or her personal file and inform the dean in accordance with current guidelines.

If a student violates the Academic Honesty Policy a second time, the instructor must begin the formal resolution process immediately.
