Academic Honesty

Plagiarism and cheating are prohibited.  You may face discipline or dismissal for these and other acts of academic misconduct.


At Middlesex Community College, we expect the highest standards of academic honesty. Academic misconduct is prohibited in accordance with the Board of Regents Policy on Student Conduct, Part D, Section 1. This policy prohibits plagiarism, defined as the submission of work by a student for academic credit as one’s own work of authorship which contains work of another author without appropriate attribution, and all forms of cheating including not limited to: (i) use of any unauthorized assistance in taking quizzes, tests or examinations; (ii) use of sources beyond those authorized by the instructor in writing papers, preparing reports, solving problems or carrying out other assignments; (iii) the acquisition, without permission, of tests or other academic material belonging to a member of the College/University faculty or staff; and (iv) engaging in any other behavior specifically prohibited by a faculty member in the course syllabus.
