Academic Integrity - VIII. Sanctions
Under the Academic Integrity Code, there are three (3) times when sanctions may be imposed: (1) by consent of the student pursuant to Section VI.A.1.; (2) during the faculty/student resolution process; and (3) during an AIB hearings sanction phase.
A. Faculty/Student Resolution Process Sanctions
All offenses may be discussed between the faculty member and the accused student, unless the faculty member or student waives the right to the resolution process. Every violation presents faculty members the opportunity to educate students about academic integrity. The faculty member and the student may agree upon one (1) or more of the following sanctions:
- A reduced grade on the assignment.
- A reduced grade for the course.
- A grade of F on the assignment.
- A grade of F for the course.
- Faculty members may require a student found in-violation of the Academic Integrity Code to attend a workshop on academic integrity.
Members of the AIB conduct all workshops. The AIB reserves the right to impose another sanction on students who do not attend the mandatory workshop.
B. Academic Integrity Board (AIB) Hearing Sanctions
First time offenses are referred to the Office of Student Conduct and all second offenses are subject to an AIB hearing. The AIB may recommend one (1) or more of the following sanctions when a student is found in-violation:
- Referring the decision about the educational outcome to the faculty member limited to the resolution process sanctions listed in VIII.A..
- Disciplinary suspension.
- Special programs.
Students found in-violation of the Academic Integrity Code may be requested to attend a workshop on academic integrity (refer to VIII.A.).
The AIB considers all relevant factors when recommending sanctions: e.g., seriousness, prior student record.
