Definitions and Examples of Academic Dishonestly
Reporting Suspected Incidents of Academic Dishonesty
Once a faculty member suspects that a student has committed a violation of the CUNY Academic Policy, he or she shall review with the student the facts and circumstances of the suspected violation whenever feasible. If a faculty member concludes that here has been an incident of academic dishonesty sufficient to affect the student’s final course grade shall report the incident on the Faculty Report Form for Suspected Incidents of Academic Dishonesty.
The Academic Integrity Officer shall update the Faculty Report Form for Suspected Incidents of Academic Dishonesty after a suspected incident has been resolved to reflect the resolution. Unless the resolution exonerates the student, the Academic Integrity Officer shall place the form in a confidential academic integrity file created for each student alleged to have violated the Academic Integrity Policy and shall retain each form for the purposes of identifying repeat offenders, gathering data, and assessing and reviewing policies. Unless the student is exonerated, written decisions on academic integrity matters after adjudication shall also be placed in the student’s academic integrity file.
