These will not be tolerated! Read the section on Academic Honesty in the Student Handbook pg. 49

so you are aware of your rights and responsibilities. Cheating will result in a lowering of your

grade one letter, receiving an F in the class, probation, or suspension from the University.

academic honesty

In order for an academic community to teach and support appropriate educational values, an environment of trust, cooperation and personal responsibility must be maintained. As members of this University community, students assume the responsibility to fulfill their academic obligations in a fair and honest manner. This responsibility includes avoiding such inappropriate activities as plagiarism, cheating or collusion. Students found responsible for one or more of these activities may face both academic sanctions (such as lowering a grade, failing of a course, etc.) and disciplinary

sanctions (such as probation, suspension, etc.).It is the intent of Minnesota State University, Mankato to encourage a sense of integrity on the part of students in fulfilling their academic requirements. To give students a better understanding of behaviors that may constitute academic dishonesty, the following definitions are provided:Plagiarism - Submission of an academic assignment as one's own work, which includes criticalideas or written narrative that are taken from another author without the proper citation.
