Academic Integrity

Student Code of Academic Integrity

When College officials award credit, degrees and certificates, they must assume the absolute integrity of students’ work. Academic misconduct includes, but is not limited to the following:

  • 5.01 Plagiarism: Taking another’s work and claiming it to be one’s own.
  • 5.02 Falsification and Fabrication: Providing misinformation about a source or misrepresenting an author’s findings or conclusions with the intent to deceive.
  • 5.03 Cheating: Intentionally accepting and/or giving aid to oneself or another to gain a higher grade or other academic advantage.

Any student who withdraws from a course with a pending academic misconduct violation may be subject to a grade change.

Both administrative and educational sanctions may be imposed by the instructor or the Academic Dean.

Any allegation of academic misconduct in a testing center is referred to the instructor for the associated course. An allegation of cheating on the Virginia Placement Test, Accuplacer or any other test not associated with a particular course is referred to the Dean of Students.

I’ve learned this, at least, by my experiment: that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he had imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.” –Henry David Thoreau


’ll leave you with this final call to action from the late Steve Jobs:

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”


Get ready to Succeed!

Final Exams are Around the Corner.

Avoid stressful people.

Stress actually is contagious. During exam week, resist the urge to have a study session with your super-tense friend, especially if she’s complaining about all the work she has to do and breaking pencils all over the place. Her stress will only add to your stress.

 Eat healthy and exercise.

This seems like a no-brainer, but it’s a wonder how many people forget it. Skip the sugar, which will make you crash, and go for snacks like granola bars, healthy cereal or fruits and veggies to keep your blood sugar stable. If you’re studying for a long period of time, eat some protein too. Also, try to get some form of exercise. Even a 10 minute walk will leave you calmer and more focused.
