Academic Dishonesty and Its Consequences

Students at Ohlone College are expected to pursue their course work with integrity and honesty. Academic dishonesty occurs when a student attempts to show possession of a level of knowledge or skill that he or she does not possess.

The two most common kinds of academic dishonesty are cheating and plagiarism. Cheating is the act of obtaining or attempting to obtain credit for academic work through the use of dishonest, deceptive, or fraudulent means. Plagiarism is representing the work of someone else as one's own and submitting it to fulfill academic requirements.

Students are responsible for knowing what constitutes academic dishonesty and for consulting with instructors about questions or concerns.

Copies of the Academic Dishonesty Procedures are available in the Office of the Vice President, Student Services in Building 7, third floor on the Fremont campus and on the Student Services website.
