SLCC Code of Conduct
You are first and foremost a high school student. Public education guidelines and rules apply when there is a question. Every attempt should be made to resolve issues of academic dishonesty within the high school and school district. An appeal through the SLCC Student Code of Conduct may only be pursued after the public education options have been exhausted. The SLCC Student Code of Conduct contains college standards and procedures. The following excerpts are quoted from the SLCC Student Code of Conduct:
Honesty is an expectation at Salt Lake Community College. This means that each member of the College community will adhere to the principles and rules of the College and pursue academic work in a straightforward and truthful manner, free from deception or fraud. Any attempt to deviate from these principles is academic dishonesty and will be dealt with according to rules of due process as outlined.
This section establishes the expectation at SLCC for academic honesty and defines situations that constitute academic misconduct. It also presents the due process to be followed when a student violates academic standards.
Forms of Academic Dishonesty
Cheating: Presenting others' work as one's own or assisting another student to do so in the classroom, lab or the Assessment Center. Cheating may also occur when a student violates the conditions governing an examination. Examples of cheating include, but are not limited to the following:
- using oral, written, visual, or other forms of communication intended to give or receive improper assistance
- looking at or copying another's work
- using unauthorized materials (texts, notes, calculators, etc.)
- taking an exam for another student
- having someone else take an exam
- altering one's work after an exam has been returned and before resubmitting it
- obtaining and/or using an upcoming exam ahead of test time
Misrepresentation: Falsifying information. This includes, but is not limited to the following:
- having another person represent or stand in for oneself in circumstances where one's attendance and/or performance are required
- misrepresenting class attendance
- presenting false academic credentials
- submitting someone else's work as one's own
- submitting work originally submitted for one course to satisfy the requirements of another course without prior consent of the current instructor. It is assumed that the current instructor expects the work to be original.
- forging or using another's signature
- altering or destroying academic records and documents
- presenting false data, experimental or physical results
Out-of-Class Work: Collaborating on or aiding out-of-class work when prohibited by the instructor. Such unauthorized activity includes, but is not limited to the following:
- receiving unauthorized outside help on take-home exams
- consulting with others about homework, laboratory reports, etc.
- copying another's homework, laboratory reports, etc. and submitting it as one's own
Plagiarism: Using another person's ideas, evidence, or words without proper acknowledgment or conveying the false impression that the arguments and writing in a paper are one's own. Plagiarism includes, but is not limited to the following:
- acquiring by purchase or otherwise, a part of or an entire document of work which is represented as one's own
- representing the ideas, data, or writing of another person as one's own work, even though some wording, method of citation, or arrangement of evidence, ideas, or arguments have been altered
- concealing the true sources of information, ideas, or argument in any piece of work
Other Academic Violations: Violations of academic policy considered as academic dishonesty include, but are not limited to the following:
- removing materials from the library without proper authority
- infringing on the rights of other students to fair and equal access to academic resources
- duplicating course materials expressly forbidden by the instructor
- using tape recorders or other recording devices in a classroom when not specifically authorized to do so by the faculty member or Disability Resource Center
- ignoring or willfully violating class or laboratory instructions or policies.
Sanctions for Academic Dishonesty
In cases of academic dishonesty, faculty members may impose one or more of the following sanctions:
- Failing the assignment in which the infraction occurred
- Failing the certification of competency in the area in which the infraction occurred
- Failing the course in which the infraction occurred.
In addition, in cases where academic dishonesty has been repeated or is of an especially serious nature, the faculty member should notify his/her Academic Administrator and the Director of Student Life and Leadership of the action taken. If the alleged violation occurs during the final examination period of the term, the faculty member may assign the student an 'I' grade to indicate a problem or incomplete work at final time. This grade will remain unchanged until the alleged violation is adjudicated.
