CWUP 5-90-010(4) Academic Dishonesty

(A) Academic dishonesty is defined in the CWU Student Conduct Code (II.B).

(B) Students accused of academic dishonesty will have an opportunity to meet with the course instructor and department chair to discuss the accusation and confirm or deny its correctness. If academic dishonesty is confirmed to the satisfaction of the instructor and department chair, the instructor and/or department chair should immediately contact the Office of the Vice President of Student Affairs and Enrollment Management, especially the Director of the Registrar's Office and the Associate Vice President for Student Affairs.

(C) The student will be notified in writing by the instructor and/or department chair of pending action from the Office of the Vice President of Student Affairs, with a copy of notification sent to the Office of Student Affairs and the Registrar.

(D) The Office of the Vice President of Student Affairs will investigate the case both as a violation of academic honesty and as a violation of the student code and report findings to the student, instructor and Registrar.

(E) If academic dishonesty is confirmed, the instructor may issue a failing grade for the specific assignment and/or for the course.

(F) Withdrawing from a course does not excuse academic dishonesty. In circumstances when academic dishonesty is confirmed, a W can be replaced by a letter grade (see CWUP 5-90-010).
