Academic Honesty

Plagiarism is a form of academic misconduct in which an individual uses another author’s research, ideas, or language without proper attribution. Plagiarism may also consist of submitting the same work for two different classes.

The penalties for plagiarism may include, but are not limited to, the following:

  1. A failing grade or mark of zero in the assignment, examination or course in which the academic misconduct occurred.

  2. Suspension from St. Mark’s College for a specified period of time, or indefinitely.

  3. A letter of reprimand placed in the student file.

  4. A notation on the student’s permanent record of the penalty imposed.

Students will not receive credit for courses taken at another institution during a suspension.
