Academic Case Resolution Process

The Academic Misconduct Resolution Process

Academic Misconduct Flow Chart


This information is a brief summary of what is detailed in the Code of Academic Integrity. Please review that document for more thorough information and contact the Office of Student Conduct staff with questions or concerns.

The Academic Misconduct Process begins with a referral from the instructor. The student will meet with a staff member for an informational meeting called a Preliminary Interview. The student will be informed of their rights at this time. Should the case move forward, the student will be presented with options on how to resolve the matter. For undergraduate students, if the incident involves a minor assignment, the matter may be deferred if the student accepts responsibility. 

As can be seen in the diagram above, students may also elect to refer themselves for academic misconduct if they feel they committed an act of academic dishonesty.
