The above policies and procedures are in effect from August 1, 2014 until further revisions are made. The College reserves the right to make changes to the Code at any time. The complete, most recent version of the Code can be found on the College’s web site in the Student Handbook.

Advisers should make a strong effort to be certain that advisees, particularly new students, understand what plagiarism is and how it relates to their academic work.  Note that faculty policy requires each instructor to distribute, usually with the course syllabus, his or her departmental statement on academic honesty at the beginning of each course.  In addition, the Dean of Advising and Co-Curricular Programs sends a letter to all new students prior to the beginning of the year emphasizing the importance of academic integrity.

At its sole option, the College may suspend or eliminate courses, academic departments, or degree programs; change curricular offerings, graduation requirements, and regulations on standing of students; alter its class schedule and academic calendar; or make changes of any nature whenever in its judgment such changes are desirable for any reason. The provisions of this publication are not to be regarded as an irrevocable contract between the College and the student. Payment of tuition or attendance at any classes shall constitute acceptance by the student of the College's rights as set forth in this paragraph.
