Tips for Preventing Academic Misconduct:
*Remind students of your classroom guidelines as it applies to academic misconduct and the areas that constitute academic misconduct (examples could include: unauthorized collaboration, plagiarism, cheating, forgery, falsification of information, purchasing papers, utilizing “cheating” websites, recycling assignments).
*Remind students of the consequences for engaging in academic misconduct (receiving a failing grade on the assignment/exam).
*Discussion of possible sanctions for further violations (formal student conduct through Student Affairs, which can result in a formal warning letter, disciplinary file, and possible school suspension for repeat cases.)
Reporting Academic Misconduct Issues
If you have students who engaged in academic misconduct, please contact Lauren Vaknin (Lauren.Vaknin@gcccd.edu), Dean of Student Affairs to assist with the next steps. As a reminder, the student code of conduct defines academic misconduct as:
*Cheating, plagiarism (including plagiarism in a student publication), or engaging in other academic dishonesty as defined by the College’s academic integrity standards
