Academic Honesty In the spring of 2006 the University approved an Academic Honesty policy that is now applicable to all courses. This policy can be found on pages 40-44 of the 2009-2010 Undergraduate Bulletin or at http://www.marquette.edu/pages/home/resourcecommons/bulletin . The Bulletin serves, in effect, as the University’s contract with its students. Accordingly, we are obligated to adhere to the protocol described in this new policy. Acts of Academic Dishonesty may include but are not limited to the following: Copying material from a web page and submitting it as one’s own work. Quoting extensively from a document without making proper references to the source. The illegitimate use of materials in any form during a quiz or examination. Copying answers from the quiz or examination paper of another student. Plagiarizing (submitting as one’s own ideas the work of another) or falsifying materials or information used in the completion of any assignment, which is graded or evaluated as the student’s individual effort. 1
