ACADEMIC DISHONESTY All the work on your assignments must be in your own words.  You may not copy from the book, glossary, encyclopedia, the internet or another student.
DO NOT QUOTE THE GLOSSARY OR BOOK'S PASSAGES: USE YOUR OWN WORDS.
Academic dishonesty defrauds all those who depend upon the integrity of the College, its courses, and its degree and certificates.  Students are expected to follow the ethical standards required in Ohlone courses.  These Standards are defined in the Policy on Academic Dishonesty .  Violations of this policy include cheating and plagiarism.  (Copies of this policy are available in the offices of the Vice President, Educational Services/Deputy Superintendent; or Division Deans.)
7.8.4.1 Definitions of Academic Dishonesty  (for further information visit http://www.ohlone.cc.ca.us/org/board/policy/Chapter7Reg.htm#7.8.2)
A. Cheating
At Ohlone, cheating is the act of obtaining or attempting to obtain credit for academic work through the use of any dishonest, deceptive, or fraudulent means. Cheating at Ohlone includes but is not limited to the following:
1. Copying, in part or in whole, from another's test or other evaluation instrument or obtaining answers from another person during the test; 2. Submitting work previously presented in another course, if contrary to the rules of either course; 3. Using or consulting during an examination sources or materials not authorized by the instructor; 4. Altering or interfering with grading or grading instructions; 5. Sitting for an examination by a surrogate, or as a surrogate; 6. Any other act committed by a student in the course of his or her academic work which defrauds or misrepresents, including aiding or abetting in any of the actions defined above.
B. Plagiarism At Ohlone, plagiarism is the act of representing the work of another as one's own (without giving appropriate credit) regardless of how that work was obtained and submitting it to fulfill academic requirements. Plagiarism at Ohlone includes but is not limited to 1. The act of incorporating the ideas, words, sentences, paragraphs, or parts thereof, or the specific substance of another's work, without giving appropriate credit, and representing the product as one's own work; and 2. Representing another's artistic/scholarly works such as musical compositions, computer programs, photographs, paintings, drawings, sculptures, or similar works as one's own.  
STANDARDS OF STUDENT CONDUCT The student has the right and shares the responsibility to exercise the freedom to learn. The student is expected to conduct himself/herself in accordance with standards of the college that are designed to perpetuate its educational purposes.  These procedures, along with applicable penalties for violation, are found in the Standards of Student Conduct and Discipline and Due Process Procedures. (Copies of this policy are available in the offices of the Vice President, Educational Services/Deputy Superintendent; or Division Deans.)
