**V. Academic Integrity **

• cheating,

• plagiarism (turning in work not written by you, or lacking proper citation),

• falsification and fabrication (lying or distorting the truth),

• helping others to cheat,

• unauthorized changes on official documents,

• pretending to be someone else or having someone else pretend to be you,

• making or accepting bribes, special favors, or threats, and

• any other behavior that violates academic integrity.

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.
