federal financial aid. (These consequences vary depending on the date of withdrawal. See the Academic Calendar on the College website.) Withdrawal from class can prohibit progression in nursing and allied health programs and can negatively impact your financial aid status. c. Make-up Work. The ability to make up missed assignments or assessments of any nature is at the discretion of the instructor. d. Lateness Policy: Students are responsible for any information covered as a result of tardiness. Missed assignments or assessments will be given a grade of “0”. ACADEMIC INTEGRITY Students must conduct themselves with honesty and integrity at all times. Plagiarism. You must submit your own work. Plagiarized assignments will receive a grade of 0. These cannot be made up. Using someone else's ideas or phrasing and representing those ideas or phrasing as your own, either on purpose or through carelessness, is a serious offense known as plagiarism. "Ideas or phrasing" includes written or spoken material— from whole papers and paragraphs to sentences, and even phrases — but also includes statistics, lab results, art work, etc. "Someone else" can mean a professional source, such as a published writer or critic in a book, magazine, encyclopedia, or journal; an electronic resource such as material found on the Internet; another student at our school or anywhere else; a friend, tutor, or relative; a paper-writing "service" (online or otherwise) which offers to sell written papers for a fee. Please note that paraphrasing (putting source material Lawson State Community College, An Institution of the Alabama Community College System Revised 2018 Lawson State Community College, An Institution of the Alabama Community College System Revised 2018 6
into your own words) without proper citation and documentation still constitutes plagiarism. All students must view the Tegrity class on Academic Integrity. Cheating. Students who cheat on tests will receive a grade of 0 for that test. These tests cannot be made up. Cheating includes speaking to another student during an exam, consulting books/notes, handling a cell phone or other electronic device, and of course, peeking at another student’s test. We will follow very strict policies on test days. These policies will be provided both verbally and in writing. During exams, students may not speak to anyone for any reason. Students must keep all phones and other electronic devices on “silent” and they must be completely packed away. Books and notes must be kept packed away. Students should not leave the room without permission. Accusations of cheating will not be announced or debated publically during the test. The instructor will simply make a note to assign a grade of 0 to the dishonest student’s test. The situation can be discussed later at an office-hour appointment.
