Academic integrity violations may be initiated by either faculty/instructors, students, librarians or administrators. When charging a student for an academic integrity violation, complainants must submit the online Charge of Academic Dishonesty form to the Office of Student Rights & Responsibilities.
Any charges should be made as quickly as is reasonably possible (normally within twelve working days) from the discovery of the infraction.
An instructor/faculty member may initiate a charge by completing the following steps:
Gather information associated with the alleged violation.
Consult with our office and verify if the student has a previous violation.
Meet with the student to discuss the alleged violation.
A student may initiate a charge of academic dishonesty against another student by referring the case to the instructor/faculty member involved and/or to the Office of Student Rights & Responsibilities. If the case is brought directly to our office, the instructor of the involved course will be notified.
An administrator or librarian may initiate a charge of academic dishonesty by contacting the Office of Student Rights & Responsibilities.
