Academic Integrity


From the ENMU Undergraduate Catalogue (p. 35) :

Students are responsible for achieving academic and course goals and objectives as prescribed by their instructors, and for demonstrating attainment in an honest manner. Failure to do so may result in two different outcomes. Misrepresentation of knowledge can influence a course requirement. Cheating, plagiarism, or other acts of academic dishonesty compromise the academic process and community and are subject to disciplinary action. An act of academic dishonesty, at the will of the University, may result both in grade changes and/or disciplinary action.

Cheating behavior includes but is not limited to :

  • (a) dishonesty of any kind on examinations, quizzes, written assignments and projects
  • (b) unauthorized possession of examinations, quizzes, or instructor records
  • (c) use of unauthorized notes or information during an examination or quiz exercise
  • (d) obtaining information during an examination or assignment from another individual and/or assisting another to cheat
  • (e) alteration of grades on an examination or assignment or in instructor or University records, and
  • (f) illegal entry and unauthorized presence in an office of the University or residence of an instructor, or unauthorized access to grade records or examination and assignment requirements.

Plagiarism includes but is not limited to :

  • offering the work of another as one's own;
  • offering the work of another without proper acknowledgment; and/or
  • failing to give credit for quotations or essentially identical expression of material taken from books, encyclopedias, magazines, other reference works, term papers, reports, or other sources of another individual.
