There are serious consequences to violations of the academic integrity policy. Oakton's policies and procedures provide students a fair hearing if a complaint is made against you. If you are found to have violated the policy, the minimum penalty is failure on the assignment and, a disciplinary record will be established and kept on file in the office of the Vice President for Student Affairs for a period of 3 years.
Details of the Code of Academic Conduct can be found in the Student Handbook.

The other viewpoint is based on our perceived reality and will develop the student’s understanding of it by focusing on abstract relationships of proportion, texture, movement, negative and positive space, shape, form, color
