WSU Academic Integrity Statement: Academic integrity is the cornerstone of higher education. As such, all members of the university community share responsibility for maintaining and promoting the principles of integrity in all activities, including academic integrity and honest scholarship. Academic integrity will be strongly enforced in this course. Students who violate WSU’s Academic Integrity Policy (identified in Washington Administrative Code (WAC) 504-26-010(3) and -404) will fail the course, will not have the option to withdraw from the course pending an appeal, and will be reported to the Office of Student Conduct. Cheating includes, but is not limited to, plagiarism and unauthorized collaboration as defined in the Standards of Conduct for Students, WAC 504-26-010(3). You need to read and understand all of the definitions of cheating.
If you have any questions about what is and is not allowed in this course, you should ask me before proceeding. Please do not turn in essays copied from online sources. Not only is this cheating, I can find most of the sources in a few minutes. If you wish to appeal any faculty member's decision relating to academic integrity, please use the form available here. If you have any questions about the process on the Vancouver campus, please call Helen Gregory at (360) 546-9573.
