Netiquette Expectations:  expectations for electronic discussions and mail communication:
          1.   Standards of courtesy and respect must be maintained at all times in our online “classroom.” Join in to the discussion, but remember that this is still a “classroom” setting and that respect

Academic Ethics: The college may initiate disciplinary proceedings against a student accused of scholastic dishonesty. Scholastic dishonesty includes, but is not limited to, statements, acts, or omissions related to applications for enrollment or the award of a degree, and/or the submission of material as one’s own work that is not one’s own.

Cheating is the willful giving or receiving of information in an unauthorized manner during an examination, illicitly obtaining examination questions in advance, using someone else’s work for assignments as if it were one’s own, copying computer disks or files, and any other dishonest means of attempting to fulfill the requirements of a course. Plagiarism is the use of an author’s words or ideas as if they were one’ s own without giving credit to the source, including, but not limited to, failure to acknowledge a direct quotation.
