Academic Honesty/Dishonesty Policy: Your success depends on a combination of the skill
and knowledge of your instructors, and your own hard work. You will reach your future
goals only if you gain new knowledge from every course you take. That knowledge becomes
yours, and can be used by you, only if it is gained through your own personal efforts.
Receiving a grade in a course, without acquiring the knowledge that goes with it,
diminishes your chances for future success. Academic Dishonesty is normally to be
dealt with as an academic action by the instructor, reflected in the student's grade
in the particular course, rather than through college disciplinary procedures. If a
student is found cheating or plagiarizing, options may be taken by the faculty member
to the extent that the faculty member considers the cheating or plagiarism to manifest
the student's lack of scholarship or to reflect on the student's lack of academic
performance in the course. -- Cerritos College Catalogue.
