Academic Dishonesty Policy

Page history last edited by ShareRiff 14 years, 5 months ago

Academic Dishonesty Policy

from USF Undergraduate Catalog:

 

Students attending USF are awarded degrees in recognition of successful completion of coursework in their chosen fields of study. Each individual is expected to earn his/her degree on the basis of personal effort. Consequently, any form of cheating on examinations or plagiarism on assigned papers constitutes unacceptable deceit and dishonesty. Disruption of the classroom or teaching environment is also unacceptable. This cannot be tolerated in the University community and will be punishable, according to the seriousness of the offense, in conformity with this rule.

 

Penalties for Academic Dishonesty:

 

Penalties for academic dishonesty will depend on the seriousness of the offense and may include assignment of an "F" or a numerical value of zero on the subject paper, lab report, etc., an "F" or an "FF" grade (the latter indicating academic dishonesty) in the course, suspension or expulsion from the University.

 

Disruption of Academic Process:

 

Disruption of academic process is defined as the act or words of a student in a classroom or teaching environment which in the reasonable estimation of a faculty member: (a) directs attention from the academic matters at hand, such as noisy distractions; persistent, disrespectful or abusive interruptions of lecture, exam or academic discussions, or (b) presents a danger to the health, safety or well being of the faculty member or students.

 

Punishment Guidelines for Disruption of Academic Process:

 

Punishments for disruption of academic process will depend on the seriousness of the disruption and will range from a private verbal reprimand to dismissal from class with a final grade of "W," if the student is passing the course, shown on the student record. If the student is not passing, a grade of "F" will be shown on the student record. Particularly serious instances of disruption or the academic process may result in suspension or permanent expulsion from the University.
