Academic Integrity Policy and Procedures
The following academic integrity policy is in effect for non-cadet students for fall and spring semester as well as Maymester and Summer School. Absolute integrity is expected of every Citadel student in academic undertakings. Academic integrity is grounded on the concept of honesty with respect to the intellectual efforts of oneself and others. A student’s submission of work for academic credit indicates that the work is the student’s own. Students are responsible for knowing what constitutes violations of the Academic Integrity Policy. Examples of violations of the Academic Integrity policy include, but are not limited to the following:
- Plagiarizing or representing the words, ideas, or information of another person as one’s own without documentation;
- Giving or receiving prior to an examination any unauthorized information concerning the content of that examination;
- Using, without authorization of the instructor, notes, books, prompts, or other materials, or receiving verbal or electronic assistance to aid in answering questions on an examination;
- Giving or receiving substantive aid during the course of an examination;
- Asking or permitting another person to take a test or engage in other academic work; or taking a test or engaging in academic work for another, whether voluntarily or for hire, in conjunction with class work or for admissions purposes;
- Violating personal property rights (for example, stealing or attempting to steal tests, keys, or grade books);
- Fabricating data in support of laboratory or field work;
- Engaging in other acts of academic misconduct.
