ACADEMIC INTEGRITY (HONESTY)
At Edmonds College, students must not cheat (= copy from other students during a test) or plagiarize (= copy from another student’s work). Teachers must tell the college if a student cheats or plagiarizes. The college keeps the information for three years. The first time students cheat or plagiarize in class, they will receive a warning. The second time students cheat or plagiarize, their teacher will not accept their work or test, and they will need to meet with the department head or the dean. Don’t copy another student’s test or homework!
