Honesty, Cheating, Plagiarism and Forgery
Academic dishonesty is inconsistent with scholarship and the pursuit of knowledge and Christian character. Thus, Indiana Wesleyan University expects students to be honest in all academic work and with all university records. Incidents of cheating, plagiarism, falsification of any university documents or any other dishonest action will be investigated and judged by the appropriate academic leader. It is the responsibility of each student to be aware of policies regulating academic conduct including definitions of academic dishonesty, the possible sanctions, and the appeals process.
