Academic Honesty Sample Statement

English Program Academic Honesty Policy Statement:
Academic honesty is an indispensable value as students acquire knowledge and develop skills in college.  Students at Chemeketa Community College are expected to practice academic honesty by not cheating, plagiarizing, or misrepresenting their coursework in any way. Students are ultimately responsible for understanding and avoiding academic dishonesty whether such incidences are intentional or unintentional. Violations may result in failure of an assignment or failure of the course.

Plagiarism, collusion, and other forms of misrepresentation hurt the student and run counter to the goals of education. The English faculty at Chemeketa are committed to educating students regarding academic honesty.
