This presentation seeks to explain some of the details of the policy.
Academic dishonesty is any attempt by the student to gain academic advantage through dishonest means, to submit, as his/her own, work which has not been done by him/her or to give improper aid to another student in the completion of an assignment.

Bottom line:Would you be willing to tellthe professor what you did?
Some of these cases may have clear-cut answers; some may depend upon circumstances in a specific class; but all of the cases are worth discussing to get a better idea about academic integrity issues.
Jane writes a paper for an Introduction to Management course on the topic of “Flexible Workplace Benefits in a Diverse Workforce.” The following year, in a class on Benefits and Compensation, she submits the same paper. Has she behaved dishonestly?
Jeff is writing a paper for a political science class. He needs to describe the workings of the British parliamentary system. He has a source that explains the system very concisely and well. He can’t think of a better way to summarize the system, so he uses some of the exact phrases of the source interspersed among his own words. He cites the source at the end of the paragraph. Has he behaved dishonestly?
Isaac was working on a group project with three other students. Each student was required to complete a fair share, 25%, of the work. Isaac completed about 10% of the total project. Has he behaved dishonestly?
Does the answer change if Isaac doesn’t contribute anything?
Sarah and Peter were lab partners in a chemistry class. One week they split the 30 homework problems (unrelated to their lab) in half. Sarah did the odd numbers and Peter did the even numbers. They met Sunday night to share the answers. On Monday, Sarah and Peter individually submitted the completed 30 problems. Have they behaved dishonestly?
Sylvia is writing a paper for her economics class. She finishes the paper a couple days before its due date and sends a copy to her mother by email. Her mother corrects the paper to fix the grammar, spelling, and typos and then sends it back to Sylvia by email. Sylvia turns in the copy corrected by her mother. Has Sylvia behaved dishonestly?
Arnold hasn’t finished his reading for his history class. The professor sometimes asks students questions point-blank about the reading, and Arnold doesn’t want to risk not being able to answer something. So, he emails the professor to say that he’s feeling sick and skips class. Has he behaved dishonestly?
