Academic Integrity Policy
Each member of the Farmingdale State College campus community is expected to maintain academic integrity. Farmingdale State College has developed regulations concerning academic dishonesty and integrity to protect all students and to maintain an ethical academic environment. This includes prohibiting any form of academic dishonesty as outlined below.
Academic dishonesty cannot be condoned or tolerated in a college community. Such behavior is considered a violation of the Student Code of Conduct, and students found guilty of committing an intentional act of fraud, cheating or plagiarizing will be disciplined and face penalties.
The College regards academic dishonesty as an intentional act of fraud, in which a student seeks to claim credit for the work or efforts of another individual without correct documentation, or uses unauthorized, undocumented or fabricated information in any academic exercise.
The College also considers academic dishonesty to include forging of academic documents, intentionally impeding or damaging the academic work of others, or assisting other students in acts of dishonesty. Academic dishonesty is divided into four categories which are defined as follows:
- Cheating: Intentionally using or attempting to use unauthorized materials (including all electronic devices), information or study aids in any academic exercise.
- Fabrication: Unauthorized falsification or invention of any information or citation in an academic exercise.
- Facilitating Academic Dishonesty: Knowingly helping someone commit an act of academic dishonesty.
- Plagiarism: Intentionally representing the content (e.g., words, images, sounds, etc.) design, or ideas of another as one’s own in any academic exercise. This includes content, design, or ideas in either print or electronic format.
- faculty members have the responsibility to establish standards ofacademic integrity and disciplinary policies in cases of academicdishonesty (consistent with the standards and policies of the College)and to include a statement of those standards on their course syllabi.
- students have the responsibility to abstain from academic dishonesty orfacilitating the dishonest behavior of others.
Violation of the academic integrity policy is strictly prohibited and may resultin a disciplinary action ranging from a warning letter to probation, suspension,or dismissal from the College with a permanent transcript notation.
