- Official Discipline: Faculty members and the Dean of GSIS will determine disciplinary measures on a case-by-case basis. Standard penalties for a first offense may include: failure or no credit for the course in which the violation occurred, hours of community service, notice to the student’s family, a one-semester suspension from the University and/or a combination of these measures. Multiple violations usually will result in expulsion from the University.


- Student Reporting: A student who has direct knowledge of a potential case of academic dishonesty is required to:

Provide a signed, written statement of the observed behavior to the appropriate faculty member and/or to the Dean promptly (guideline: within two weeks of the alleged occurrence); and
Provide the name or identity of the person alleged to have committed the violation.

Students who knowingly do not fulfill this reporting obligation are subject to sanctions. A reporting student’s identity may be kept confidential by the faculty and/or Dean at the student’s request. A violating student’s confession of an Honor Code violation will be considered as a positive factor in the determination of disciplinary action.


Plagiarism means presenting the words or ideas of another person without citation of the source, thereby dishonestly indicating that the words or ideas of another person are the author’s own work. Examples of plagiarism include: “turning in someone else’s work as your own, copying words or ideas from someone else without giving credit, failing to put a quotation in quotation marks, giving incorrect information about the source of a quotation, changing words but copying the sentence structure of a source without giving credit” and “copying so many words or ideas from a source that it makes up the majority of your work, whether you give credit or not” among other things.
