Academic Honesty Academic honesty is highly valued in Florida Tech's online courses. The student must always submit work that represents original words or ideas. If any words or ideas are used that do not represent those original words or ideas, the student must cite all relevant sources and provide a clear definition of the extent to which such sources were used. Words or ideas that require citation include but are not limited to, all hard copy or electronic publications, whether copyrighted or not, and all verbal or visual communication when the content of such communication clearly originates from an identifiable source. In the Florida Tech online course, all submissions to any public
meeting bulletin board or private mailbox fall within the scope of words and ideas that require citations if used by someone other than the original author. Academic dishonesty in an online learning environment could involve: Having a tutor or friend complete a portion of the student's assignments Having a reviewer make extensive revisions to an assignment Copying work submitted by another student to another public class meeting Using information from online information services without proper citation Any of these practices could result in charges of academic dishonesty. For the complete Florida Tech policy on academic dishonesty, cheating, and plagiarism, see the Florida Tech Student Handbook: (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. . Attendance Attendance is required on a weekly basis. Students are expected to view the online lectures in the week they are offered and to log onto the site often enough to remain abreast of the communication on the message board as well as any class news or information from the Professor. It is the responsibility of the student to be aware of everything happening in the class online. Course Withdrawal To withdraw prior to the start of class, you must contact your Bisk representative.
