Academic Integrity

Academic integrity is expected at Idaho State University and the College of Business. All forms of academic dishonesty, including cheating and plagiarism, are strictly prohibited, the penalties for which range up to permanent expulsion from the university with "Expulsion for Academic Dishonesty" noted on the student's transcript. If you are unclear as to what constitutes academic dishonesty, read the College of Business Policy on Academic Integrity and the ISU Student Code of Conduct.

Some examples of dishonest behavior include, but are not limited to

  • Collaborating too closely with other students on assignments.

  • Allowing another student to copy your work and then submit it as his/her own.
  • Allowing someone else to complete your assignments for you and then passing off the work as your own.

  • Communicating with someone other than the professor during an exam.
  • Removing the exam from the classroom.
  • Acquiring exam or assignment answers or questions.
