2 Academic Honesty In keeping with UIC and College of Business Administration policy, evidence of academic dishonesty will result in a failing grade in the course and disciplinary review by the University. Cheating on exams and plagiarism are forms of academic dishonesty. Plagiarism includes passing off someone else’s works or ideas as your own, or paraphrasing material from a source (e.g. the Internet) without proper acknowledgement and citation. All sources in written work should be properly credited. Written Assignments Papers should be written clearly, concisely, logically, and in keeping with rules of Standard English. Poor spelling, grammar, syntax, and punctuation will be penalized. If writing is a problem, students are strongly advised to seek a tutor (free of charge) at the UIC Writing Center. The instructor may require papers to be rewritten if unacceptable.
