Plagiarism and Academic Dishonesty
The faculty and administration of Pierce College are committed to the belief that honesty and integrity are integral components of the academic process. The College expects students to be honest and ethical at all times in their pursuit of academic goals. Students who violate the code of academic conduct by which the College maintains its academic integrity will be dealt with in a manner reflecting the seriousness of these violations.

Violations include, but are not limited to, the following: using study aids such as calculators, tape recorders, or notes when not authorized by the instructor; cheating on examinations, assignments, or experiments (allowing another student to copy one’s answers or copying the answers of other students; exchanging information by any means, including verbal exchanges, sign language, hand signals, secret codes, passed notes, creation of a distraction for the purpose of cheating; changing answers on a previously scored test, assignment, or experiment; inventing information and/or data); allowing another student to assume one’s identity in order to fulfill an assignment or take a test; submitting for a grade the words, ideas, and/or written work (including laboratory notes and drawings) of another person without giving due credit to that person, including purchased papers or papers written by other students; falsifying or attempting to falsify attendance records and/or grade rosters; and conspiring with other students to commit any of the above behaviors.
II. Consequences for any offense against academic honesty and integrity may include: An “F” or a “0” on the examination or assignment.
