An excerpt of those policies follows: . . . The institutional policy that follows includes prescribed procedures for the assigning of penalties by instructors in instances of academic dishonesty as well as procedures for student appeals of such actions. A student who in any way acts dishonestly in class assignments or examinations or who submits a plagiarized or unoriginal work to an instructor shall be subject to sanctions up to and including an F grade for the assignment, examination and/or the course at the discretion of the instructor of the course. The numerical value of the F will be assigned by the instructor. If the instructor assigns an F for the course, the student will not be allowed to drop the course. If the instructor assigns an F for academic dishonesty, the student has the right to appeal following established procedures. Upon recommendation of the instructor or at his own initiation, the chief academic officer may decide that repeated or extremely serious acts of dishonesty may be grounds for more severe disciplinary action up to and including student expulsion . . .
