University guidelines for student responsibility

Certain requirements must be met before a degree is granted. It is important for students to acquaint themselves with these requirements and to continue to keep themselves informed about them during their college careers. The student has the ultimate responsibility to know and fulfill the requirements for his/her degree program, to check his/her own eligibility to take courses, and to observe the academic rules governing his/her program. Although the advisor will attempt to help the student make wise decisions, the ultimate responsibility for meeting the requirements for graduation rests with the student.

Academic dishonesty is unacceptable and will not be tolerated. It is the student’s responsibility to understand the scope of academic dishonesty (cheating, plagiarism, collusion) and how to avoid all instances of misconduct.
