Scholastic Integrity

TSTC expects all students to engage in scholastic pursuits in a manner that is beyond reproach. Students are expected to maintain complete honesty and integrity. Any student found guilty of scholastic dishonesty is subject to disciplinary action. Scholastic dishonesty includes, but is not limited to, cheating on academic work, plagiarism, and collusion.

  • Cheating on academic work includes, but is not limited to:
  • copying from another student's test paper or other academic work;
  • using materials during a test that have not been authorized by the individual giving the test;
  • collaborating with another student, without authorization, during an examination or in preparing academic work;
  • bribing another person to obtain an unadministered test;
  • knowingly using, buying, selling, stealing, transporting, or soliciting, in whole or in part, the contents of an unadministered test; and
  • substituting for another student, or permitting another student to substitute for oneself, to take a test or prepare other academic work.
  • Plagiarism means claiming another's work as one's own without acknowledging its origin and doing so for credit.
  • Collusion means unauthorized collaboration with another person in preparing a written work offered for credit.

Discipline for scholastic dishonesty follows the same course as other disciplinary actions, except the appropriate faculty member considers and reviews the case first. The student may appeal the faculty member's decision to the program chairman or department head and then to the Dean of Student Learning. If the student is not satisfied with the Dean of Student Learning decision, he/she may follow the normal disciplinary appeal procedures. Students are not suspended from class or from the College until they have received due process.
