»Academic Integrity Sanctions

The usual order of recommended sanctions is as follows:

First violation: Instructor-imposed sanction and/or a letter from the Academic Integrity Committee. If the recommended sanction by the instructor (or the sanction imposed by the Academic Integrity Committee which may be a warning, a recommendation for suspension, or a recommendation for expulsion from the university) is an F grade for the course, the student cannot drop the course and the F grade cannot be eliminated by retaking the course.

Second (and subsequent) violations: Instructor imposed sanction and Academic Integrity Committee sanction appropriate to the nature of the violation. The Academic Integrity Committee sanction may be a warning, a recommendation for suspension, or a recommendation for expulsion from the University.

Possible Sanctions

The sanction given to a student is entirely up to the instructor/administrator based on the severity of the violation. The following are only examples of possible sanctions that can be given out.

  • Disciplinary warning.
  • A make-up assignment that may be more difficult than the original assignment.
  • No credit for the original assignment/exam.
  • A failing grade on the assignment/exam.
  • A reduced final grade for the course.
  • A failing grade for the course.
  • Denial of access to internships or research programs.

Additional Information on Sanctions

  • A student cannot withdraw from a course once an academic integrity violation has occurred.
  • A grade of F received as a result of an academic integrity violation cannot be removed from the calculation of the GPA should the course in question be repeated.
  • Any grade received as a result of a second academic integrity violation cannot be removed from the calculation of the GPA should the course in question be repeated.
  • The Academic Integrity Committee sanction letter will be placed in the student’s file in the Office of the Chancellor along with the instructor’s report.
  • A copy of the letter will also be sent to the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs and Dean of Students, and the University Registrar.
  • False statements made during the course of the process may result in additional sanction(s) and a referral to the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs/Dean of Students for a Student Conduct Code violation.
