Academic Integrity at Atlantic Cape

Atlantic Cape expects unwavering integrity from students in submitted work. Acts of cheating or plagiarism will not be tolerated and the student will be subject to disciplinary action as detailed below. Students are required to give credit to all individuals who contributed to the completion of any assignment. Specific sources of all information, ideas and quotations not original to the author of the assignment must be referenced. These references must be cited using standard methods such as those taught in ENGL101- Composition I and ENGL102-Composition II or other formats as specified by the instructor. If group work on an assignment is permissible, specific authorization and instructions pertaining thereto must be provided in writing by the instructor.

It should be noted that persons facilitating plagiarism or cheating by another student are equally culpable and such persons may also be subject to penalties similar to those stipulated below. Examples of such facilitation include, but are not limited to, the following:

  1. A student gives a copy of a past assignment, such as a term paper, to a second student with the understanding that the second student may use the assignment as his/her own work.
  2. A student observes or has other first-hand knowledge of cheating or plagiarism and fails to report this to the instructor.

All students are reminded that they have an ethical responsibility to guard the academic process against corruption by such acts of dishonesty. In addition to the above, students must follow all course-specific or instructor-specific procedures established for examinations, laboratory experiments, studio work, reports and projects.
