Academic Honesty

Levels of Violation

Levels of Violation

There are two levels of violation: major and minor infractions.

• Minor Infraction – A violation that occurs either without clear evidence of the intention to deceive or with evidence that is insufficient to constitute proof. While a minor infraction is not a major infraction, a second minor infraction of the same nature will be treated as major infraction.

• Major Infraction – A violation with evidence that supports the student’s intention to deceive and/ or a continued pattern of disregard for the conventions of academic integrity.
