Procedures for Faculty

A faculty member who suspects, but is not certain, that a student has violated academic integrity may:

  • Seek clarification through discussion with the student
  • Seek counsel within the divisional policies and procedures
  • Seek advice from the Officer of Record and/or the Academic Integrity Committee

A faculty member who determines that a student has not acted in accordance with standards of academic integrity will:

  • Notify the Officer of Record, as well as the Division Chair
  • Provide the Officer of Record with a written statement documenting the offense
  • Notify the student of the procedures and possible consequences
  • Issue the appropriate course-related penalty, pending an investigation by the Institutional Academic Integrity Committee if the student has had previous offenses

This process should be completed within ten business days (ten days when the College offices are open) of discovery of the incident.
