Policy on working together, copying, plagiarism etcPolicy on working together, copying, plagiarism etc Cheating: This includes but is not limited to dishonest or attempted

dishonest conduct at tests or examinations.

Plagiarism: This includes but is not limited to the presentation or submission of the work of another person, without citation or credits,

as the student's own work. When a member of faculty suspects that misconduct has occurred, he / she shall investigate it immediately.

If satisfied that the misconduct did occur, he / she shall notify the student at once that he plans to report the incident, and he/she shall

then report it immediately to the department head, or to the appropriate person in the faculty, who in turn shall notify the dean of

that faculty or designate without delay. If after thorough investigation,during which the student shall be given an opportunity to explain the incident, the misconduct has been established, the academic aspects of the matter may be dealt with, and appropriate academic action taken by the department or faculty concerned. When the misconduct consists of cheating as described above, zero credit or some other mark may be assigned by the faculty for the examination or test in

which the cheating occurred.

Policy on working together, copying, plagiarism etcPolicy on working together, copying, plagiarism etc

When the misconduct consists of plagiarism as described above, zero credit or some other mark may be assigned by the faculty for the plagiarized submission. The action thus taken shall be reported immediately to the President's Advisory Committee on Student

Discipline by the dean of the faculty in which the misconduct occurred, together with a complete description of

the evidence upon which the faculty action was based.

To summarize, if you submit copied work, you will get zero for itand there will will also be an investigation which could result

in further disciplinary action which could be as severe as forcing the student to withdraw from the University.

YOU CAN WORK TOGETHER WITH OTHERS BUT WHEN THE TIME COMES TO WRITE THE MATERIAL UP,

DO IT ON YOUR OWN.
